Having a lush green lawn can be one of the most difficult things that you do all summer. There is an art to having a green lawn, and many people just can't seem to get it figured out. One of the most important things that you can do if you are serious about having a green lawn is install an irrigation system. An irrigation system will help you initially get your lawn green, but it will also help you maintain a green lawn through the hot summer months. Here are a few reasons to consider irrigation installation.
Your lawn is going to need different amounts of water through the different months of the summer. In early May, your lawn will not need nearly as much water as it will in July. An irrigation system is going to provide you with the the ability to set different programs through the summer months. In May, you may only want to water once a day for twenty minutes, but in July, you may need to water twice a day for thirty minutes to keep your grass from burning up. You will be able to set a schedule and ensure that the grass is watered perfectly.
Easy To Maintain
Many people think that an irrigation system is really hard to maintain, but the simple fact of the matter is they are simple. In fact, most of the time you will not have to worry about the system at all. You will be able to set the system to a specific schedule and forget about it. If you ever do find that you are having issues with a sprinkler head, you will be able to replace the sprinkler head without a problem. They are very easy to keep up and running at peak capacity.
If you do not have an irrigation system, you will be forced to haul a hose and sprinkler head around during the day. The problem with watering during the day is that most of the water is evaporated before it even gets to your grass. So, you end up having to water a great deal more than if you were able to water in the early morning. When you are forced to water more often and for longer periods of time, you will be wasting a lot of water. You may even notice that your water bill goes up.
