Many people install irrigation systems for their functionality and usefulness in helping your lawn and landscaping during the hot summer months in Shawnee, Oklahoma. A properly installed irrigation system in Shawnee, Oklahoma helps to keep the lawn and plants well-nourished in times when there is no rain. As you know from being in Shawnee last year, there are many summers where rain is scarce. It will also enable you to regulate the quantity of water that either some plants or some parts of the lawn are receiving. The process of installing an irrigation system is very environmentally safe and can actually help you save on water consumption versus trying to manually water the lawn on your own. There will be no damage to your lawn during installation of the pipes and the process is usually very seamless with your existing infrastructure of your landscape. It is always recommended to draw up a design plan and keep it handy in case there is a leak on the system, so it will be easy to trace where the pipes are located.
An irrigation system which saves water for your landscaping will save you a lot of money in the long run. Compared to using a hose and traditional manual sprinkler systems to water your lawn and the plants on your landscape, using an irrigation system is much more efficient. It helps you to effectively keep track of the amount of water you use every month. Your water bill is likely to decrease when you have a scheduled time for watering your lawn and plants during the cooler parts of the day in the dawn and dusk. There are many who believe that using an irrigation system will waste more water because you are watering on a consistent basis, but this is a false belief. The water which ends up on your lawn and landscaping is distributed evenly and therefore does not lead to over watering. Watering each plant with a hose will lead to over watering many gallons of water. Not only that, but we all know that your time is worth something, and who wants to move their sprinklers around multiple times per day just to make sure that the entire lawn and landscaping is properly covered in the proper amount of irrigation?
This leads to the next major benefit of having a properly installed irrigation system. You also get to save a lot of time and energy. This is because the system will be set up to go off at specific times of day and you won’t have to be there to adjust your sprinklers multiple times to cover your entire lawn. You will therefore have a lot of time that you can use to do other productive things as your landscape is being irrigated. Also, due to the fact that you will have set it to go off automatically, it will be very efficient in terms of time. There will not be cases where you are stuck in traffic or caught up in an emergency and are therefore unable to water your lawn. You won’t have to worry about always check your watch to see if it is watering time.
A good irrigation system can also lead to a reduction in the amount of weeds in your lawn. This is contrary to popular belief but is actually true. The reason for this is the fact that the water is regulated and also directed specifically to the plants that need to be watered, and not dumped randomly as would be the case when watering by hand.
It is widely known that if you make improvements to your home then you also increase its resale value. This means that if you have an irrigation system, the value of your home will be higher should you want to sell it at a later date. In the current ‘buyers market’ for real estate, you need every advantage you can have to make sure that your property stands out among all the rest. A properly designed irrigation system will help your landscaping and lawn look so much better, and it will be a ‘hands off’ approach that will not take all of your time.
Due to the efficiencies mentioned above, you will significantly increase your chances of having a landscaped home where everything looks vibrant and natural. This is the perfect time for adding an irrigation system. Spring is here and summer is right around the corner. Do you really want to be dragging your sprinkler around every day just to make sure your home looks wonderful? Considering the fact that there was a drought problem last year, setting up an irrigation system will help you solve that potential problem. Through the use of good irrigation systems, the right quantity of water will be used at the right time for your lawn and your landscaping.
