Sprinkler Irrigation System

Value Of An Automated Sprinkler Irrigation System

Over and under watering the lawn are extremely damaging to the grass, roots, and soil. As such investment into an automated sprinkler irrigation system is recommended to ensure regular watering in the right quantities.

With an automated sprinkler irrigation system you will not risk forgetting the sprinkler on for two or three hours longer than required. You will also not forget to set the sprinkler system for operation as may be the case with conventional portable spray systems. You will however, not benefit from such a system if you are renting. The cost of installation will not be worth it and since it is seen as a fixture you will not be able to take it along to a new place should you decide to move.

For the homeowner, however, an automated sprinkler irrigation system can be the answer to optimal watering of the garden. Be careful when selecting the system as you will not want to get a system that becomes a hazard when trying to mow the lawn. For the lawn area select pop-up spray heads set at specific intervals and time durations. Let the sprinkler system do its thing early morning or during the night to prevent water loss because of evaporation.

Maintenance on the sprinkler irrigation system is low. The highest costs involved are that of supplies and installation. The monthly water bill will vary according to the municipality tariffs, but with correct lay-out and installation you can minimize water loss and run-off.

The sprinkler heads may get damaged from time to time. As such replacement of the heads must be done to prevent water loss. Keep the dogs away from the sprinkler heads and prevent people from parking their vehicles on your lawn.
