A beautiful and green lawn can make you the envy of all your neighbours. It adds to your home’s curb appeal. Plus, it can become a sense of pride for many homeowners.
But should you or shouldn’t you? How do you know if a lawn sprinkler is right for you and your yard? Let’s take a look.
How Much Time do You Spend Watering Your Lawn?
If you have a smaller lawn, it might not take much time - and you might rarely even think about it. But if you have a larger lawn, you likely dread the time you have to spend dragging that hose around every few days. It ends up taking an hour or so by the time it’s all said and done. You don’t particularly enjoy it or look forward to it. In this case, it might be time for you to consider a lawn sprinkler system. It can save you money and time - which leads into our next question for you.
How Much Money Do You Spend on Water?
Do you find your water bill tends to jump up during the summer months? It doesn’t necessarily have to. And watering by hand frequently leads to using more water than is necessary. Plus, you might actually be drowning your plants in the process - hindering their growth.
An automatic sprinkler system can save you money on that monthly water bill. A sprinkler system only uses the amount of water necessary. You save on water waste - and can even pat yourself on the back for doing something good for the environment.
Is Your Soil Quality Lacking?
Overwatering ruins your soil’s balance. It can make it compact, which leaves little room for the roots to breath. It can also cause a nutrient imbalance. Managing your water’s nutrient and moisture levels can lead to healthy and flourishing plants. And a sprinkler system can take care of this for you. By using only the water necessary, the sprinkler system ensures that overwatering doesn’t happen and that your plants are able to thrive in an ideal environment.
Do You Plan on Selling Your Home in the Next 2-5 Years?
A sprinkler system can increase the value of your home. Potential buyers love the fact that your home comes with as little yard maintenance as possible. It’s a huge selling point.
