The Texas summer heat has settled in, and by expert accounts, will be pretty oppressive and stifling this summer. To maintain your plants and lawn throughout the heat, consider trading in your outdated sprinkler for a custom-designed irrigation system.
An expertly designed and installed irrigation system can make your landscape flourish, as well as conserve water and money by reducing overspray and preventing over- or under-watering. It’s one of the best ways to ensure your lawn is evenly watered.
A major component of a properly designed system is defining irrigation zones. These zones are essentially sections of your landscape separated by the plants’ distinctive requirements for water. Grass, for example, has different water requirements than groundcovers, shrub, trees or flowering plants. Once you’ve determined your zones, you can tailor watering schedules to each specific one, so the correct amount of water is dispersed to the targeted area.
You’ll notice a big change when you make the switch to an irrigation system that’s custom-designed to your unique landscape because you’ll be able to keep your landscape healthy and lush with less water.
