If you want the best-looking lawn on the block, you can’t wait around for Mother Nature to give your grass the water it needs to flourish. It’s up to you to water your lawn during dry spells to ensure your grass doesn’t get dry and turn an ugly yellowish-brown color.
The old solution was to lug heavy hoses around the yard to water every square inch of your property or set up cumbersome sprinklers to help make the task a bit easier. The best way to water your lawn, though, is with an automatic sprinkler system.
Keep reading to find out why this is the best method.
The top benefit of an automatic system for homeowners is the convenience they afford. After the system has been installed, all a homeowner needs to do is set a timer to tell the sprinkler when to start and stop watering. Depending on how large your lawn is, an automatic system can save you hours of watering time each week while providing better results.
Optimal watering time
Grass needs to be watered at precise times to get the best results. Watering too late in the day leads to drastic evaporation, meaning the water won’t soak deep down into the roots where it’s needed. On the other hand, watering at night after the sun goes down can result in diseases. Experts recommend watering in the early morning hours—but waking up early to water the lawn is a pain in the neck.
Instead of starting your day off by watering the lawn, stay inside and enjoy your morning coffee while your smart sprinklers take care of the dirty work. Simply set the timer and watch the sprinklers pop up and deliver the perfect amount of water to your lawn.
Watering your grass is obviously essential for lawn health, but the trouble some homeowners run into is actually overwatering. Too much water on the lawn can damage the roots and do more harm than good. An automatic system will deliver the ideal amount of water, keeping your lawn healthy without wasting any water.
Additionally, today’s advanced sprinkler systems have sensors that tell the systems to shut off if there’s rain in the forecast.
If you’re not overwatering your lawn, you’re saving a ton of money on your monthly water bills. Installing a sprinkler system isn’t a small investment, but it may help pay for itself over time by slashing your monthly utility bills.
Water any time
With the kids out of school, summer is the peak season to head on a vacation for some much-needed R&R. While you’re sure to have fun on your vacation, the last thing you want to return to is a yellow lawn. Instead of asking your neighbor to water for you, we recommend installing smart sprinklers. Your sprinkler system will continue watering even if you’re thousands of miles away.
