If you are thinking about putting any amount of grass in your yard, then it is very important that you think long and hard about how you will water this grass. Getting grass in and of itself is a big investment, so you want to make sure that you protect your investment. A great way to do this is to install a residential irrigation system. There are several great reasons to install a residential irrigation system, and this article will discuss 2 of these reasons in more detail.
No Dry Spots
Because an irrigation system is set up in such a way that every square inch of your yard will be watered, this greatly reduces, and often even eliminates, any issues that you may have with dry spots. In contrast, when you try and use a sprinkler attached to a hose to water your lawn, you will likely run into issues with dry spots because it is very difficult to ensure that you don't miss a spot when watering this way. Having a residential sprinkler system also takes the guessing game out of watering because the system does all of the thinking for you. You may need to adjust a sprinkler head if it has been knocked out of place, or you may need to reset your watering schedule depending on the current weather trends or the season in general, but other than that, the sprinkler system will take care of your lawn on its own.
No Worries About Leaving Town
If you don't have a residential sprinkler system installed, then you will likely worry a great deal about watering your yard when you go out of town. You know that it will die if left unwatered, but it can sometimes be difficult to find someone who is willing to move a hose all over your yard several times a day. Thankfully, a residential irrigation system can eliminate any worries or problems that you may have with going out of town because your watering will be pre-programmed and completely taken care of. You know that the sprinkler system will not "forget" to water the yard like a friend or family member might, and it will consistently water it the same amount each day. This allows you to feel more at ease when you leave home because you know that you will come back to a thick, green, healthy lawn.
