Larger yards take a lot of time to water by hand, especially if you grow fruits and vegetables. Depending on the plants you grow, they may need watering twice a week during the summer. Installing landscape irrigation system can be a good idea. Landscape irrigation is a watering system that is used to create and maintain lawns, gardens, and custom landscapes. Landscape irrigation may seem like a costly endeavor but sprinkler or drip configurations have several advantages. Specialized drip irrigation systems direct water specifically to each plant’s rootball, rather than sprinkling the entire garden like a typical rainstorm. As a result, surrounding weed seeds cannot germinate, so you’ll have less weeding to do. Water at the roots also prevents leaf diseases caused by standing droplets on the foliage. Because the water does not strike the leaves or flowers, blight diseases have no chance of proliferating. Then, if you have a busy schedule, you’ll appreciate being able to work in the garden at the same time as the plants are being watered. While one garden section is being watered, you can plant and prune in another area.
Hand watering with a hose or watering can takes substantial time and early morning and evening watering rituals take away from family and work. Both drip and sprinkler landscape irrigation systems have timers that can be preset for daily or weekly watering so you do not need to monitor the watering because the timer shuts the water off when it has finished. Your water bill should be lower if the landscape irrigation system is effective.
