The benefits of having an automated irrigation system are numerous. Programmed irrigation controllers meet the specific needs of the plants and trees of your landscape. Each system is completely adjustable so that the individual needs of each plant by area can be addressed.
The ideal situation is to be able to enjoy the freedom of "no worry" irrigation. Automated irrigation controls water usage during the driest conditions and includes a rain sensor which allows for the benefit of Mother Nature's natural watering. For the individual that travels or is unable to manually pull hoses and run sprinklers, an automated irrigation system is the simple solution.
Tips On How to Water
If you want your lawn to stay healthy and look good then watering the lawn is a process that you should routinely undertake in seasons where rainfall is inadequate and high temperatures result from strong sunshine. Watering a lawn is not a process that should not be carried out every day! In order for a lawn to thrive the grass needs to have a healthy root system. A strong deep root system is encouraged when water penetrates deep into the soil, the roots then 'follow' the water and so form a deep healthy root system. A lawn that has only a shallow weak root system are at greater risk and will be more severely affected by environmental stress factors such as drought, pests or disease.
In certain regions and in certain years water may be scarce as water reservoirs may not have adequate supply from rainfall. This can lead to a hosepipe ban in some areas meaning that use of a hosepipe fed lawn sprinkler is not possible. An attractive lawn needs a lot of water. What are the options for watering the lawn when there is a hosepipe ban or when we want to try and conserve water?
