When you have a large lawn, making sure its properly watered can take up quite a bit of your valuable time. During the hot summer, many plants need to be watered more than once per week. When you first start looking at irrigation systems, you may look at the cost and think that it’s just not worth it. But, you should look at the many benefits first. The right irrigation system for your landscape can make a world of difference, both for you and your plants. Here are just a couple of the great benefits of installing an irrigation system.

Save Water and Time

One of the biggest benefits of installing an irrigation system is that it will save you quite a lot of time. Watering twice a day in the mornings and evenings takes loads of valuable time that you could be spending with your family or doing other things. Drip and sprinkler irrigation systems are both totally programmable to run at whatever times you set, and for the amount of time you choose. When the cycle is done, the system will simply shut off. As an added bonus, an effective irrigation system uses far less water than watering with a garden hose, so you save money as well as conserving water.

Keep Your Soil and its Nutrients in Place

When you use a garden hose to hand-water large portions of your yard, you run the risk of too much water getting into the soil. The resulting runoff can cause valuable nutrients to be carried away. Watering with a garden hose can also cause soil to compact. If this happens, your plants’ roots will struggle to grow which can cause them to die.
