If you have a large yard, then you know it can take quite a while to water it by hand, especially if you are growing a garden. In some situations, you will have to water your yard twice weekly, especially if it is extremely dry and hot. This is especially important for New Jersey residents who only experience, on average, 10 days of rain a month. This can result in dry conditions that are not conducive to keeping your lawn healthy and great looking.
However, there is a better solution. When you utilize irrigation systems, you can easily and conveniently water your yard as often as necessary. Some of the other top benefits offered by installing an irrigation system are highlighted here:
Offers a Convenient Solution
If you are like most people, your days are busy. However, you don’t want to neglect your yard, which is why an irrigation system can be invaluable. You can set timers on your system to water at various times on certain days. This provides you with the peace of mind that your plants and lawn are receiving the water they need without having to actually handle it yourself.
Helps to Preserve Nutrients in your Soil
If you water your plants and lawn with a regular garden hose, it may cause too much water to seep into your soil. This results in nutrients leaking out of the soil as the water runoff flows, which leaves your plants lacking certain necessary nutrients. Additionally, too much watering causes the soil to become compacted, which could suffocate the roots. However, when you use a sprinkler or drip irrigation system, there will be smaller drops of water released into the ground, keeping the nutrients where they belong.
Helps to Conserve both Time and Water
There is no question that having to hand water your plants and lawn can take a great deal of time. Moreover, when you use an irrigation system, you will likely have a reduction in your water bills since only the proper amount of water is dispersed evenly throughout your lawn and garden.
