Would you like your lawn to stand out this year? Then be prepared to water plants and your grass regularly. If your daily schedule doesn’t allow you to keep up with this chore, then you need an professional sprinkler system. A sprinkler system takes care of all the watering for you and may even improve your property value. Still, there are some things you’ll need to consider before calling Spartan Irrigation for installation.

Factors to Consider When Planning for Sprinkler Installation

Water Usage

Manually sprinkling your lawn is a great way to waste water. If you’re concerned about the water bill with an automatic sprinkler system, have no fear. Today’s modern systems are efficient and use only the water necessary. Sprinkler heads are also on timers, so you never have to worry about overwatering or underwatering your landscape. With a professional sprinkler installation, you’re more likely to save money on your water bills. 


Do you have some odd-shaped areas that could create zoning challenges? When planning for a sprinkler installation, your potential zones should be considered. For example, if you have odd spaces on your lawn, more zones may be necessary, likely increasing the installation costs. So, if you can avoid creating odd-shaped areas around your yard, you’ll be better off in the long run with your sprinkler system. 

Sprinkler Heads

Choosing the right sprinkler head for your sprinkler system will also make a big difference. You don’t want sprinkler heads that are too small for the zones, but you also don’t want to overwater your lawn. You should also pick the right sprinkler head based on the vegetation and the needs of your grass species. There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution. So, if you need help selecting the right heads, make sure you ask the professionals.
