The Benefits of Landscape Irrigation
Irrigation and drainage systems can help you maintain the overall quality of your landscape as well as save money and time. Even the best quality landscapes can be ruined by poor irrigation and drainage —it’s a key feature that shouldn’t be overlooked when designing your landscape.
Here’s a little summary to convince you of the benefits of installing an irrigation and drainage system for your landscape.
Homeowners can invest a lot in their landscapes and work hard to keep them well maintained, but something as simple as not being home to water your yard at the right time of day can have a big impact. With an irrigation and drainage system, you can ensure that your yard is always taken care of.
You can set your irrigation system up so that it runs on a timer which waters the grass automatically, meaning that you don’t need to take time out of your day to do it.

Automatic irrigation systems ensure that you don’t waste any money or water as they are programmed to provide exactly what is necessary to keep your landscape in good health. Most irrigation systems also have rain sensors so that you don’t overwater your grass, again saving money and water.
A correctly installed irrigations system will reach all relevant areas of your landscape and only those areas, ensuring that your water is dispersed effectively. Irrigation systems can help you to save between 30% and 50% of the water which would have previously been wasted using other methods.

It can be all too easy to overwater or underwater your outdoor space when doing so manually, which is why irrigation systems are great at helping you to provide the exact sustenance your lawn and plants need.
