As you no doubt noticed, in Shawnee for the early part of this year we had one of the wettest and coldest springs for years. This meant that many lawns became beautiful and green without a lot of work.
However, it seems that Oklahoma is returning to its’ usual pattern of a hot and dry July and August which means that if your lawn does not get enough water it is going to look as though it is dead in a very short space of time. Rest assured that it is not dead and that the grass will recover in time. It just needs a little help from a properly installed irrigation sprinkler system from Riemer and Son.
If you want your lawn to look green and vibrant throughout the summer months then it is essential that it gets enough water. If you have a normal sized lawn then dragging a sprinkler attached to a water hose around your yard multiple times every other day becomes very tiring. My company, Riemer and Son Landscaping and Irrigation is the premier installer of irrigation systems in Shawnee, Oklahoma and the surrounding areas.
The beauty of an irrigation sprinkler system is that, once installed, it will be there forever. In order to have a lush, green beautiful lawn, no matter how hot the weather, all you need to do is program the control panel for the sprinkler system and your work is done!
With some of our sprinkler systems you do not even have to do that. All of our systems are designed for your particular site and no two are the same. We take account of the position of trees and plants and produce a sprinkler system that is right for your yard, which ensures that plants receive neither too much nor too little water.
Properly programed timer controls see to it that the amount of water is delivered correctly for each area.
Even though we’ve had a relatively wet spring this year, Shawnee and the surrounding areas are still on odd/even water rationing. This is the perfect scenario for using an irrigation sprinkler system that is programmed to be turned on for your watering day. Programming your sprinkler system will also allow you to water during the early morning hours or late evening hours when the watering is more effective.
Another feature of our irrigation systems is that they will also shut down for periods of time. It depends on the type of soil you have, but usually a period of irrigation is followed by a 15 minute shut down which allows the water to penetrate the soil rather than just run off.
In addition, the time of day is taken into consideration. If you water in the afternoon the soil is warmer and therefore there may be more evaporation.
