Irrigation 101

Water management is as essential to your landscape as proper sun exposure and fertilization. One of the most obvious benefits of an irrigation system is protecting your yard, plants and trees from inefficient watering and drought. A well-designed system ensures that your grass and plants are getting the proper amount of water. Sprinkler systems, drip irrigation and hand watering are some of the ways to keep landscapes hydrated. A good rule of thumb to follow is to never water more than three times a week.

Simplify Your System

There’s a plethora of resources and tools to help improve irrigation. For example, a thoughtful way to prevent overwatering is to install a smart controller to override automatic watering systems when necessary. Once a designated amount of water has been detected, it shuts down any regularly scheduled irrigation. These controllers are small, simple devices and are generally easy to install. They can measure out exactly how much water your plants are receiving and thus offer greater water savings.
