Everyone wants a greener lawn, but not everyone knows how to get that lushes lawn they are looking for. One way to maximize your efforts is to install a sprinkler system. But if you are like most people, you have no idea where to begin. How do you choose the right system for your lawn? How can a sprinkler system save you money?
This article answers all the questions you may ask about installing your first lawn irrigation system.
First of all, there are two kinds of sprinkler systems – above ground and underground. The latter obviously costs a bit more, but it is the ideal sprinkler system for larger areas.
Though you will have to put out some money for the initial installation, a lawn irrigation WILL save you money in the long run. It actually uses less water than if you simply pick up the hose and watered your lawn. And with a sprinkler system, you do not have to worry about your lawn drying up and dying because you forgot to water it last Tuesday. It can cost a pretty penny to replace dead grass. Finally, a good irrigation system will increase the resell value of your property. But what type of system should you install?
Look at the size of your lawn. If you have a small yard, an elaborate underground system is probably not the right choice for you. But if you have a large lawn and it tends to get hot and dry in the summertime, an underground system might be a wise investment. An underground system can either water the lawn by the drop method or spray your lawn from through the different sprinkler heads placed around your yard.
If you have a small yard, you can go with the cheapest method and attach a sprinkler to a garden hose. It is cheap, but effective. If you want something a little less noticeable, you can get a system that you can install just below the surface.
The choice is up to you.
