At IDL Company, we know that homeowners in the Kansas City area including those in Lee’s Summit, Independence, and surrounding areas desire a lawn that not only looks beautiful, but is healthy as well. In order to make your lawn the envy of all your neighbors, not only is proper irrigation important, but keeping away disease and insects as well. Proper irrigation is key in maintaining a healthy, beautiful lawn; fertilizing your lawn on a regular basis is also important to a lush green lawn you can be proud of..
Using sprinklers you operate manually can lead to over- or under-watering. It is difficult to know when your yard has had enough water, particularly during periods when rain is in short supply. During spring and summer months, gauging how much water your lawn actually need can be a guessing game of sorts. Have you watered enough, or does the grass need more water to be at its most beautiful during the spring/summer season? For Kansas City homeowners, an irrigation system can be the answer to your problems – and no more guessing whether it’s time to water the lawn!
How do irrigation systems work?
Essentially, irrigation systems apply water to a lawn only when it is needed, when properly designed and maintained. Soil moisture must be replenished in order to achieve and maintain a healthy, vigorous lawn. These systems apply water only when necessary, so that moisture is replenished without over watering, which can be just as damaging as too little watering for the lawn.
Basically, irrigating your lawn is accomplished one of two ways: either manual irrigation, or automatic irrigation. Manual is what most homeowners are accustomed to, and involve sprinklers, hoses, nozzles, and other methods of hand watering. In other words, you do it yourself when you feel that it is time to water the lawn. Some homeowners also use timers so that they know precisely how long they have been watering a specific area of the lawn, or a garden/flower bed.
Automatic irrigation systems are designed to work in ground, and are clock-driven. While these types of irrigation systems are usually a bit more expensive initially, the results are outstanding – and guess work is eliminated. You have the ability to schedule the system in accordance with your needs in regards to landscape and climate, so your lawn is watered automatically and without your assistance when it’s time. No dragging out hoses and sprinklers, only to have to guess how long you should water the grass, flowers, shrubs, etc.
