Your lawn needs to receive enough water during the summer heat to keep it healthy and beautiful. While you can stand under the scorching heat from the sun with a hose in your hand, there is a better way to keep your lawn properly hydrated, and that's by having an irrigation system installed on your property. Irrigation systems deliver the right amount of water at the right time to your lawn, ensuring that water gets to the roots before it evaporates or runs off, preventing your grass from drying out. Irrigation systems also utilize zones that divide your lawn into different parts, each part requiring a different amount of water from the other. These zones ensure every part of your turf gets enough water coverage to thrive. Keep reading to learn more about how an irrigation system can benefit your lawn in North Carolina.

Installing an irrigation system saves you time.

One of the primary selling points of installing an irrigation system on your lawn is convenience. True to this point, an irrigation system will save you time as it utilizes timers that you can program to release water at appropriate times and stop once the time runs out. When you invest in an irrigation system, you don't have to waste any of your time worrying about watering your lawn. You can even run errands while your irrigation system is watering your lawn. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!

Conserve water and save money with an irrigation system.

Your lawn requires sufficient water, especially during dry spells, to prevent the grass from drying out and turning brown. Irrigation systems help to optimize the watering process and conserve water. Learn more about how irrigation systems help make watering your lawn more efficient:

  • Irrigation systems release water at the right time, helping you save money on water bills. You can program your irrigation system to release water in the early morning before the sun gets too hot or just before dusk. These are the most efficient times to water your lawn to ensure the roots get the water they need before evaporation or runoff can occur.
  • Irrigation systems conserve water by using only the necessary amount to keep your grass in tip-top health. Setting the proper time for when the irrigation system will turn on maximizes the amount of water released. It ensures water gets to where it needs to go so that you don't have to keep re-watering your lawn.

Drip irrigation systems can conserve water by keeping water at the soil level for maximum absorption instead of on the leaves, where it can evaporate.

Irrigation Systems Deliver The Right Amount of Water To Each Irrigation Zone

Different parts of your lawn require different amounts of water, and these varying water requirements determine the zones in your yard. Zoning lets your irrigation system deliver the right amount of water to each zone to keep every part of your lawn in optimum health. This way, you prevent overwatering and underwatering some areas and ensure equal water distribution.

However, mapping out the zones requires professional irrigation teams. Aside from their expert knowledge of determining zones on your lawn, they know how to place and aim the sprinklers to release low or high water coverage. Correct placement of the sprinklers also allows all zones to receive water and ensure no area is missed.
