There are many benefits to installing a sprinkler system in your yard. For starters, it will help you water consistently and effectively each time. Having a sprinkler system helps you conserve water, allowing you to set the system to water during early morning hours to take advantage of cooler temperatures.
No more missing patches of your lawn! Depending on your climate, you can easily avoid overusing water by setting your sprinklers to water only a little at a time. Customizing your irrigation system allows you to customize your watering strategies to your lawn needs. One of the best benefits to installing a sprinkler system in your yard is the automatization of lawn care. It often removes the need to worry about how much and when to water. The benefits of a sprinkler system outweigh the initial cost of the system, which will pay for itself sooner than you may think. It will also increase the value of your home!
It is important to understand all the components that work together in order to water your lawn. These components consist of the controller, valves, pipes, and sprinkler heads.
- Controller: This is a small computer, typically installed in the garage or other area out of the way,, that controls the timing and activation of the sprinkler system.
- Valves: Each system will have a network of valves placed in underground boxes that open and close in order to control the flow of water through the pipes to the sprinklers.
- Pipes: Polyvinyl chloride, or PVC pipes, are buried under the lawn’s surface and carry water to the sprinklers.
- Sprinkler Heads: Lastly, your lawn will be divided into zones, each having 5-10 sprinkler heads depending on the size of the yard. When activated, the sprinkler heads will pop out of the ground when activated, and distribute water surrounding the area.
When you decide to schedule an appointment to install a sprinkler system, we will advise you the best way to determine the different zones that need watering. Some zones may require more watering than others, or some may need to be water certain times of the day. These zones can include: shrubs and bushes, garden areas, and the lawn itself. Shrubs and bushes will usually require high-rise sprinkler heads for taller plants. Garden areas will require special sprinkler heads that water the area more gently than it normally would water your grass. Bubblers or small spray heads will carefully water areas that have vegetables or flowers, ensuring that they are not damaged. Areas of your yard that have large grass patches will require the most common sprinkler heads. These will deliver a consistent and even spray over your grass area.
