So if your lawn isn’t looking it’s you’re probably wondering what you can do to improve it. Efficient and regular watering is critical to a healthy lawn. So, before we go any further, if you don’t currently have a sprinkler system installed we recommend you start there. If you have a system installed and still aren’t getting the results you had hoped for, here are some tips to help you transform your lawn.
Replace Your Sprinkler Heads
You may think that your sprinkler system should take care of itself. However, set it and forget it is not an effective sprinkler management strategy. Just like any other system in your home your sprinkler system needs to be carefully maintained in order to continue working efficiently. The highest quality sprinkler heads are meant to last about 10 years, but this timeline can be shortened based upon the quality of your water and the care that you take with them. If your lawn is beginning to look like it’s not getting the water it needs, consider calling in a professional to replace old or broken sprinkler heads.
Try Zone Irrigation
Not every corner of your yard is the same, and they certainly shouldn’t be treated that way. If one side of your yard is shaded with trees while the other side is in full sun most of the day you can’t expect the same irrigation plan to work across the board. That’s why many families choose zone irrigation in their yards. Zone irrigation can be complicated and may require some serious forethought, so partner with a company you trust to execute this vision for you.
Get On A Timer
Hopefully, your sprinkler system is already on a timer, but if it isn’t it’s worth urging you to make the switch. If watering your lawn regularly is dependent upon your being home to oversee the project, we can promise you that it isn’t getting watered enough. With a good timer, you can stop worrying about your lawn and start enjoying it.
