Do I Need a Sprinkler System?

We can all appreciate the gorgeous aesthetics that luscious green grass and thriving trees, plants, and flowers bring to our Northern VA, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. homes. But watering can be such a pain, and if you forget to water your lawn, you could be left with dead, parched grass that will take even more work to bring it back to life. Overwatering can also cause damages to your grass.

So what can you do for improved efficiency and convenience? Installing a new sprinkler system could be the perfect solution!

Do I Need a Sprinkler System?

Sprinkler system installation can offer a variety of benefits for homeowners. No longer are the days where you need to drag around a hose and stand outside watering your lawn wondering if you’ve given your landscaping enough, or too much, water. All the while, you could be wasting water and money. Some of the benefits of sprinkler systems include:

  • Shallow grass roots and weed growth. Watering your landscaping each day with a garden hose promotes shallow grass roots and weed growth.
  • No overwatering. Brown patches in your lawn can also indicate fungus growth, which can be caused by overwatering. Installation of a sprinkler system for your landscaping can help reduce water usage, taking the guesswork (and hard work) out of your lawn care and maintenance.
  • Convenience. Sprinkler systems can also be beneficial while you and your family are on vacation or away for holidays and special occasions. You will no longer have to worry about your plants and landscaping while you are away!

With an automated system, you can pre-program a watering schedule for your entire Northern Virginia property. New advances in modern technology have created fantastic additions available for your sprinkler system including improved sprinkler head design, helping to further reduce water waste. You can even include rain and moisture sensors, to prevent your system from watering when it isn’t needed, as well as, automatic drip irrigation zones for added water efficiency!
