Potential Benefits of Sprinkler System Installation in Broomfield, CO
When it isn’t raining as much as it takes to keep a yard looking it’s best, it’s possible to simply put out the hose to water it. However, hiring a Sprinkler System Installation Broomfield CO company may be an even better decision. There are a number of potential benefits to having a sprinkler system installed.
Can Save Water
People often water at the wrong time of day for convenience or water the lawn too much. This can cause a lot of water to be wasted and increase the water bill. A sprinkler system typically has sensors that tell it whether or not it has rained and whether the amount of moisture in the lawn is enough, so it typically only operates when necessary. It can also be programmed to run at the optimal time of day on its own, which is usually between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m., making it more likely that the water will actually be absorbed by the ground. Finally, the sprinkler system will be set up, so it only waters the plants that need it, rather than the pathways and sidewalk, which often happens when people use a hose-based sprinkler.
Watered for Proper Length of Time
A Sprinkler System Installation in Broomfield CO company will help set up the system to run for the right amount of time (which is between 5 and 30 minutes depending on the type of sprinkler heads used) and the right number of days per week (this is typically five or six days each week in warmer weather and every other day in cooler weather). This will help keep the lawn from looking wilted, having a lot of thatch, being soggy, being too dry or growing too slowly.
Problems of Overwatering
Overwatering isn’t just a problem due to increased water bills;it can also damage the lawn. For example, it can cause rot, moss, mildew and a condition called brown patch lawn disease where a fungus makes a brown circle on the lawn.
