What Are The Benefits Of A Sprinkler System?

As we begin approaching the hot Texas summer months, you may find yourself asking what improvements you can make to your lawn care systems. One of the most straightforward enhancements you can make is to install a sprinkler system. Sprinkler systems help keep your lawn and landscaping look green and vibrant throughout the blazing summer heat.    

Your Austin Lawn Will Look Better Than Ever  

If you’ve ever tried to water your lawn using a sprinkler that was hooked up to a hose, there’s a good chance you grew frustrated quickly. Not only did you have to go out and move the sprinkler every few hours manually, but you also likely saw brown patches across your lawn due to the inconsistency of these sprinklers.  

Fortunately, a sprinkler system can help you avoid this problem. Automatic sprinkler systems will water your entire lawn evenly so that your yard is luscious and green. Even during the dog days of summer, you will not have to worry about portions of your lawn dying. Furthermore, the healthier your grass is, the less chance there is of weeds overrunning your yard.  

Lastly, your lawn will look great because you and your neighbors will never have to look at the ugly eyesore of a manual sprinkler system again. An automatic sprinkler system can run in the early hours of the morning, and retreat into the ground when a watering cycle has finished. If you time the cycles right, no one will ever know that your sprinklers were running.  

Protect Both The Environment And Your Wallet  

A sprinkler system will not only cut economic waste but cut financial waste as well. One of the best examples of this is the amount of water that an automatic sprinkler system will preserve. Automatic sprinkler systems utilize a proficient system of  

  • Water Gauges 
  • Moisture Sensors 
  • Timers  

These tools work together to ensure that you only use the amount of water needed for your lawn and not a drop more. As this graphic shows, automatic sprinkler systems cut water waste, and are much more efficient than manual sprinklers. Not only does this help the environment, but it can also save you money on your water bill.  

Increase Your Austin Home's Value

Additionally, an automatic sprinkler system can increase your home’s value by nearly 15%. This is mostly dependent on the area in which you live. If you live in an area where many of the homes have in-ground sprinklers, your home will not be as valuable. And if you live in an area where no one has in-ground sprinklers, installing a system could set your home apart.

Improve Your Lawns Health

Lastly, an automatic sprinkler system allows the roots of your grass seed to be watered thoroughly, allowing them to grow deep beneath the surface. As a result, this complex root system can help prevent erosion and runoff. You’ll end up saving money in the long run as you won’t have to continually invest in lawn repair and waste money on new topsoil, seed, or fertilizer.
