Lawn Irrigation

Lawn Irrigation Tips

Proper lawn irrigation will help to ensure that the right level of moisture content will be present. This in turn will help to keep the lawn green and lush. It is however, important not to over water the lawn and as such you should put a proper lawn irrigation plan into action. It involves more than simply opening the tab. It should form part of a complete lawn maintenance plan.

Types of Lawn Irrigation Systems

There are many types available on the market. Depending on your budget, the square metres to be covered, the grass type and the water availability, you need to select a system that will meet your specific requirements.

Automatic irrigation is well suited for areas where constant irrigation is required. If you travel a lot or come home late at night, you will also benefit from the usage of an automatic system complete with time switching abilities. This type of system is perfect for warmer areas. It is however, important to change the watering schedule according to the season and temperature changes to get optimal results.

If you don’t have an automated sprinkler system, you will most probably water the garden with normal sprinklers. It is important to use the right amount of water and to move the sprinkler to new spots every so often, but be sure to give the sprinkler enough time to water the grass thoroughly before moving it. You need to water every part of the lawn at least twice a week and make sure that the lawn is well saturated before moving the sprinkler to another spot.

It is however, also important to note that not all grass types should be watered throughout the year.
