After a long, hard pandemic, you might not be super inclined to sitting around with the house all summer hoping for a pretty lawn. You are more likely to want to get out and about and ensure that you are enjoying every moment that you missed. The outings with family, the drinks with friends, being able to hug someone after you have both received the COVID-19 vaccine… All of these things sound a lot better than sitting home and watering your lawn by hand on a hot day.
Well, you can’t really have both. If you don’t have a good irrigation system set up, you are going to have to stay home and water regularly if you are really striving for a flawless lawn. However, that means you are going to miss out on what you need outside of a great lawn.
By installing a professional irrigation system, you really can have both. A sprinkler system comes with water-saving techniques, money-saving ways, and is customizable to everything you might need to water your lawn. If one part of your turf needs a little push, you can set your system to water there more often and water well-hydrated spots less often.
Time is money, you know, that is the popular saying. Most would agree, especially after what seems like a wasted year hiding from a virus, that time is the most valuable thing we have. If you can get on board with this idea, why would you choose to spend your time sitting outside alone with a hose, targeting your lawn? You could be sending that time with your family or loved ones, and enjoying the hot summer that we are experiencing. Let your irrigation system work its automatic magic so that you can enjoy what you’ve got.
It is no secret that climate change is a very serious issue. To combat it, we should be taking every precaution we can, which means not wasting water on our lawns either. I mean, you wouldn’t leave the water running when you brush your teeth, would you? It is the same concept for your lawn. On average, garden hoses waste about 15% more water than an irrigation system. Think about what that is doing to not only the environment but to your wallet.
A return on investment is a big reason many people even purchase a home, to begin with. When you are getting ready to downsize, upsize, or are just ready for a big change, an irrigation system will make your home more marketable in the long run, especially to first-time homebuyers.
If you are putting in all of this time and effort into hand watering your lawn, the health and wellness of your soil is likely at the forefront of your mind as well. An irrigation system can help improve the life of your soil. It will prevent overwatering, which often happens with hand watering and distractions, and it will leave your grass better than it was before. If overwatering by a garden hose does happen, it can prevent the nutrients from being absorbed into your soil, which will greatly harm it in the long run.
