Proper watering is crucial in making any lawn or garden become luscious and vibrant, that’s why knowing how to choose an Irrigation System type is vital. Every homeowner looks out on their property and wishes their yard was free from brown patches and underwhelming grass. But fixing this through manual watering is tiring and prone to errors. You have to drag out hoses, waste gallons of water and then attempt to water precisely all with your own hands. An irrigation and sprinkler system will do the work for you; saving you money and wasted effort. It’s THE best way to bring stunning results to your garden. Here’s a look at some key tips on how to choose the irrigation system to brighten up your garden: What Type of Sprinkler System Do You Need? Spray Sprinkler Systems Spray Sprinklers are the type that you probably think of first when talking about a Sprinkler System. They are recommended for areas such as lawns, bushes and gardens that need quick application. They work by using pop-up sprinkler heads, connected to a pump that has a timer. This allows for precision watering, for the optimal duration. Perfect for: Flat gardens Lawns Absorbent soils Slopes (With a well-planned watering schedule) Rotor Heads Rotor Heads are a type of spray system that are often used across large areas.

It seems like everything in life requires maintenance. Your air conditioner, your health, your dog and even your sprinkler system repairs require some attention. Left unattended the sprinkler system will under-perform the job you bought it to do. More and more Florida business owners and home owners are relying on automated sprinkler systems to maintain the beauty of their property. An automated system when running properly can save time and effort and money. Taking care of that system a few times a year can also save money in the long run. 1. It's easier to take care of them now rather than later. Sprinkler system repairs are a maintenance item that when attended to on a regular basis at least twice or three times per year will keep problems nipped in the bud and are much less costly when repaired sooner. People who spend time in nature are happier, so keep your stacation spot looking and feeling great with a little walk through the sprinklers. Any delay in the repair can cause damage to your flowers, shrubs or lanscaping, as well as continued deterioration of the system itself. And if the system needs a repair in one or more spots, there's also a loss of water, which can increase your bill. We suggest a simple inspection a few times a year and some preventative maintenance to prevent any bigger issues down the road. 2. Sprinkler Obstruction When planting new shrubs or flowers, be sure to check first to ensure the sprinkler spray will not be obstructed. Positioning garbage cans or new plants in front of a sprinkler can cause dry spots where the water was supposed to flow. Check your current landscaping as well to ensure that plant growth hasn't blocked the path of water flow. Sometimes the best fix is just [...]
