Watering your lawn and garden is part science, part art form. As time goes on, you will get consistently better at understanding your particular plants and how much water they need when to thrive. Avoiding overwatering or underwatering your lawn and plants is crucial to ensuring that they continue to thrive without wilting or becoming vulnerable to pests and disease. An irrigation system will take the guesswork out of watering your lawn and plants, ensuring they are always getting the right amount of water.
Soil Moisture Meters
A great little tool to have is a soil moisture meter, otherwise known as a soil moisture sensor. These are inexpensive probes that are put directly into your soil to monitor their moisture levels and allow you to keep a closer eye on your lawn or garden. How much water your soil needs changes depending on the type of soil you have, grass type, and plant type. All of these factors should be taken into account and moisture meters should be placed in appropriate areas where you need to monitor the water levels to ensure that you are not overwatering or underwatering your lawn or garden.
When you’re ready to automate your watering schedule an irrigation system can be installed to keep your soil perfectly watered at all times. These systems can take a lot of the guesswork out of watering your plants by delivering the right amount of water at the right time every time, as determined by your personal settings. This can be a huge boon when you aren’t available to water your garden or lawn due to being busy with work, going on vacation, or dealing with an emergency that will keep you away for a while. The irrigation system will continue to do its job while you’re away, so you can come home to a beautiful lawn and garden.
Irrigation systems are tailored to your particular needs, so it’s a good idea to consult with a professional landscaping company such as Honeysuckle Nursery & Design to determine the best type of irrigation for your needs, as well as the preferred layout that will provide excellent results. Knowing that your irrigation system is taking care of your plants, even when you can’t be around, can give you peace of mind and free up time in your day for other passions.
