There are a lot of things to do in order to keep a lawn green and healthy: mowing, trimming, fertilizing, aerating, the list seems to go on forever. For most working Americans, taking care of a lawn can seem impossible which is why so many people have started opting for lawn care services. The beauty of lawn care services is that it’s like the lawn automatically cares for itself! The same thing can be said of lawns with automatic sprinklers. By installing an automatic sprinkler system, homeowners can avoid a whole lot of work and a whole lot of problems.
They Decrease Workload
The first and most obvious advantage of installing automatic sprinkler systems in Reno is that turning them on is no longer a chore. After a hard day’s work, few people think to themselves, “I really can’t wait to go outside, turn on my sprinkler, and move it around my yard for hours!” With an automatic sprinkler system, the action happens on its own.
They Work at Night
Another great feature of automatic irrigation systems in Reno is that they take the guess work out of when to water the lawn. Nowadays, it isn’t enough just to water lawns, now we have to water them at the right time, usually in the evening. The reason watering in the evening is best is because it reduces water burn (when water droplets act like magnifying glasses), and it reduces evaporation. By installing a sprinkler system, the only thing to remember is to program them to come on in the evening. Chances are that will be the last bit of attention they require.
They Eliminate Guesswork
For those who are concerned about over watering their lawn or garden, we can’t emphasize enough what a great help a rain censor can be. Even in the desert, there are days when we get rain. When that happens, it’s always guess work as to whether that rain was sufficient and whether we should water or not. When a rain censor is installed with the sprinkler system, that censor will know for sure whether to activate the sprinkler system and, if so, for how long. This prevents over-saturation and things that come with it, like root rot. For more about automatic sprinkler systems, contact a local irrigation specialist.
