Why every home should have a sprinkler system
One of the most important things to do in order to cultivate a strong, healthy lawn that’s the envy of your neighborhood is consistent watering. For those who are busy or would simply like to relax on a hard day’s night, the last thing you want to do is stand outside, spray your lawn and get wet from some splashback.
That’s why every home should have a sprinkler system to water the lawn. But, the advantages don’t stop there. Read on to see the benefits of having a home sprinkler system.
Waters your lawn consistently
Whether you’re going on vacation or simply leaving town for a day or two, having an automated sprinkler system ensures your lawn gets the water needed to keep the grass hydrated and healthy.
Doesn’t use more water than you do
A common critique of sprinklers is that they waste a lot of water, but that’s just not true. The systems use the same amount of water as you do, and if it’s the rainy season, you can even adjust how many times a week the sprinklers go on.
Tailors to your needs
If you have an awkwardly shaped lawn or live somewhere that receives a lot of snow, there are systems tailored to your lawn. That way, you never have to worry about something freezing over or not watering your entire lawn.
Things to beware of
While all these things are reasons to have sprinkler systems for your yard, there are some criticisms of sprinkler systems. For example, sprinkler systems make lawns more susceptible to overwatering and runoff. To counter that risk, simply monitor it carefully and never forget when you have it on. Also, if you already don’t have a drainage system, watering the lawn yourself is likewise susceptible to runoff.
