Automatic Sprinkler and Lawn Irrigation Systems

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

If you’re thinking of investing in your lawn this spring, one of the items you might consider is a lawn irrigation system or automatic sprinkler system.  Expensive?  Yes.  An investment?  Yes.  But if you regularly water your lawn, a system can be both convenient and conservative.  

Convenience comes with not having to move the sprinkler, roll out the hose, move the hose, forget about the sprinkler, and have saturated grass in one area.  Conservation comes with the well-thought-out plan for sprinklers placed strategically throughout your yard and put on a timer.  They will eliminate over-watering, water run-off and wasting water because you forgot to turn off the hose.  The lawn will be healthier and less likely to harbor weeds and pests.  Pesticides and fertilizers can be applied and watered as needed.  The system will also result in a beautiful, green lawn throughout the season, because it will be convenient and conservative.  Remember that this lush lawn will require more mowing and lawn care maintenance from your lawn care specialist.  

Your irrigation or sprinkler system should simulate natural weather patterns, according to about.com.  Water should go deep in the soil; shallow and frequent watering leads to a weak plant, but deeper watering helps develop strong root systems.  Drought and extreme heat have less effect on healthy grass.
Finally, if you are considering a system, consider having it professionally installed by a professional lawn care company in Maryland, like Hillside Lawn Service.
