Automatic irrigation systems come in two varieties. You’re probably most familiar with sprinkler head systems, which release water from a distribution device attached to the end of a water pipe. These systems work best for spacious lawn areas. Drip irrigation systems, on the other hand, release water from tubes with holes in them. These systems are more suited to flower gardens and other planting beds.
Depending on your landscape’s specific layout, just one or a combination of both types may be appropriate for your needs. This is a great time to have an automatic irrigation system installed. Properly maintained, it will provide your lawn and landscape with the right amounts of water at the right times…for many hot summers to come. Not to mention, it can help to conserve water and lower your water bill!
