Keeping your lawn lush and green all summer long can be a challenge if you’re relying on the traditional hose and sprinkler combo. Without a proper irrigation system, you’re likely wasting water on the sidewalk and missing patches of turf. Our goal at Spartan Irrigation is to provide expert irrigation installation and service, so you can conserve water and save money. If you’re on the fence about installing a lawn sprinkler system, here are some of the most important benefits to consider.
A lawn sprinkler system can save you money by reducing the amount of wasted water. Instead of running a traditional hose and sprinkler for hours, your irrigation system is managed through a control panel and therefore set to water your lawn only for a specific amount of time. You will often use less water, have a better looking lawn and save money on your utility bill.
Efficient Water Management
When you can control when and how much water you use, you have complete management over your lawn sprinkler system. Often, a manual sprinkler can lead to overwatered areas or no watering at all if you’re out of town. In contrast, with a perfectly timed setup, you can change the sprinkler timing and even shut the system off if rain is in the forecast.
According to Home and Garden Information Center of Clemson University, the best time to water your lawn is first thing in the morning. Cooler temperatures and lighter breezes help the water soak into the ground before it can evaporate. Water your lawn before 10 a.m. to help your lawn lock in moisture and keep cool all day long.
