The Importance of Irrigation Planning

Just like people, plants need water to survive, and the water needs of different plants vary depending on their state of growth, the time of year and their species. That’s why it’s so important to have a custom irrigation system installed as part of your landscape design, to ensure that your plants are getting the right amount of water they need.

Sprinkler Placement
Sprinkler placement is important in landscape design because some areas of your garden will require more moisture than others. In fact, water mismanagement can lead to dead plants and displaced soil. A well-planned landscape design will take into account where sprinklers are most needed and place them accordingly, ensuring the longevity and beauty of your garden without over or underwatering.

Professional Installation
Sprinklers should be professionally installed to ensure that they function correctly – and most importantly, so they don’t leak. Leaks and overwatering can be harmful to your soil and drown your plants while also becoming a breeding ground for mosquitoes with standing water. The installation of your irrigation system by landscape professionals will ensure proper placement of piping and sprinklers for optimal results.

Save Time & Energy
Sprinkler systems eliminate the need to water your garden yourself, and don’t require much maintenance once they’re installed. They also save money, as your water usage will now be more efficient with a sprinkler design that is tailored to your specific landscape design.
