Going Green: The Key to a Lush Lawn
Minnesota summers can be dreadfully dry, leaving your lawn crunchy to walk on and ugly brown to look at. The neighbors don’t like it and you don’t like it…so do something about it. Since your landscaping is the only impression that most people get from you and your home, make it a good one. Be adding in an irrigation system to your landscape, you will be sure to have a vibrant, green lawn all season long. There are several benefits to adding an irrigation system to your lawn. Let’s take a look at some examples.
Reduce Water Usage
Many people think that installing an irrigation system to keep your lawn green will waste unnecessary amounts of water. Just the opposite is true, in fact. People who use sprinklers to water their lawns often use far more water to keep their grass green than an irrigation system. This is because with a system, it only uses the amount of water the lawn needs to stay green. When compared to a sprinkler, they stay on for hours and only water a piece of your lawn. Many times they are left on for too long, forgotten, thus over watering and wasting water that your lawn doesn’t need in order to stay green.
Due to not wasting anymore water, you will also decrease water bills. A good irrigation system is programmed to conserve water, so you only pay for what your lawn actually needs to stay healthy. Over time, you will see that the cost of the installation of an irrigation system pays for itself in the amount of water it conserves and the cost that it saves your pocketbook.
Saves You Time
Watering the lawn will be able to be removed from your to-do list permanently. This will free you up for far more important things in life, such as barbecuing or relaxing by the pool. These systems automatically water your lawn, so that you don’t have to. You can program it to water only at certain times of day, if that would work best for you. Overall, you won’t have to be thinking about watering the lawn, let the system prove itself to you by watching it water itself.
Better Lawn Health
Using an irrigation system leads to consistent watering, making your grass greener. This also leads to faster grass growth, which helps keep weeds from growing because the grass is growing healthily.
When looking at perfecting your landscaping, an irrigation system is sure to be at the top of the list of priorities. With their ability to save water, money, and time, you just can’t go wrong. Plus, you get a healthier lawn. All of this leads to a great impression of you and your home.
