A key part to maintaining your landscaping is watering. But ensuring the different parts of your landscaping are receiving the right amount of water can be tricky, and poorly designed and installed sprinkler systems are bad for the environment and for your budget.
Not all sprinkler systems are created equal, which is why it’s important to entrust sprinkler system installation to experts like Hot Shot Sprinkler Repair & Landscape. We’ll take into consideration factors like the climate where you live, the needs of different parts of your landscape, and choose the best option from available systems. Still not convinced? Read on to learn about all the benefits of a well-designed sprinkler system.
One of the easiest ways to recognize a poorly designed sprinkler system is to observe how much it’s watering surrounding pavement, as opposed to the lawn. This is a huge waste of water. Manually watering your lawn and landscape may seem like it would solve this problem and conserve water, but it also leads to a lot of water waste.
Water is one of our most precious resources and it’s important to not use more than necessary when taking care of your landscape. Besides being a waste of water, overwatering can also be harmful to your landscaping-even more so than underwatering.
Overwatering your lawn or plants can weaken them, leaving them susceptible to disease, or drown them and kill them, paving the way for weeds to grow instead. In addition to weakening or killing your plants, excess water runoff can carry away vital soil nutrients your plants need to be healthy.
Designing and installing a sprinkler system helps prevent overwatering, which leads to happy, healthy plants and lawns.
