Here in Alpharetta, we’re familiar with lush green spaces that stretch as far as the eye can see. Our community has been gifted with rich soil that keeps our plants alive and thriving. But your plants and your landscape need more than just soil and sun to keep them healthy, lush, and looking sharp. You’ll need to keep it watered and happy for it to grow and thrive in your garden. Hand watering can be time consuming and become a major pain, so why not consider investing in an irrigation system that can be easily adapted and designed just for your landscape and future landscape projects?
Why Invest in an Irrigation System?
One of the primary perks of investing in an irrigation system is the time you’ll save with it. While it can be fun to water all of your plants and take a quick pulse of the growth and progress they’ve made, it can be extremely time consuming and it’s hard to ensure that they’re getting all the water that they need. Unless you’re super meticulous about your watering efforts, know how much water pressure your hose has, know how much water each plant needs and do it at the time of day when it won’t evaporate immediately. With an irrigation system, all of those factors are more easily covered, so you won’t have to worry about them. We can set up drip lines with specific gallon per hour rates that keep the amount of water isolated and going to each individual root system at the exact right time and rate. Plus, we can design your landscape so your water stretches farther. With implements like retaining walls and clever irrigation system design, we’ll be able to target and understand water flow throughout your property with more nuance than ever before.
You’ll be able to be more effective at getting your foliage the water it needs while saving more time.
A good irrigation system doesn’t just save your time, it saves you money as well. Overwatering a plant or underwatering it doesn’t do anything good for the long term health of your foliage and makes you spend more money in the long run trying new things out to fix a problem that’s as simple as meeting minimum happiness requirements for individual plants. If you invest in an automated irrigation system, you’ll be able to avoid wasting energy, time, and mostly money on simple problems with simple solutions.
If you walk into your yard right now, you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of symptoms of under or overwatering throughout your yard. Since you’re only human, you can hardly be applying the water supply evenly, and it’s preventing you from getting the most out of your landscape and the plants you have. You’ll be able to catch underwatering signs by looking out for footprint marks in the grass, soil that’s overly dry to the touch, and clearly stunted growth from your foliage and plants.
You’ll be able to catch signs of overwatering, too. Most folks think it’s better to overwater than underwater, but like everything in life, the truth is in the grey area. You’ll want to keep a balance for the sake of your root systems and developing plants so they can truly thrive. Plus, overwatering means you’re just wasting money, and the utility company doesn’t need to be paid for water you don’t even need to be using. Overwatering signs usually include fungus growths, thatch-build up on grass and pest presence throughout the landscape. It can result in problems for your plants and stunt their growth and potential.
With so much time and money being saved, it’s hard to say an irrigation system is anything but convenient. With a proper irrigation system, life will be so much simpler. You won’t just be watering your plants with just the right amount, you’ll be keeping your grass green and healthy, too. You’ll be able to set up timers, even connect your irrigation system to your smart home to make it even easier to just come and go as you please. Your yard will be able to stay lush and fresh and all of that hard work you put into landscape design will reward you with full, lush plants and trees that thrive in the environment you’ve built for them. With the right irrigation system, you’ll be able to turn your yard into another room in your house that you can enjoy and entertain in with ease.
Take playing with fickle watering schedules and hand-held timers out of the equation entirely, by investing in the sheer convenience that an irrigation system brings.
One of the main major perks of investing in an irrigation system is the value it adds to your home. Irrigation systems, like we stated above, save money, time and are more convenient in every way imaginable. They make it easy not to anger the HOA with bad looking grass, or get the city called on you for having unruly bushes and trees that you need to trim back the dead branches on. That’s a pretty big plus for most home buyers. Indeed, it’s a big enough addition for most home buyers that it could increase the value of your home when you’re ready to move on and put it on the market. Like most home improvement projects, irrigation systems are a lucrative way to add a few digits to the price point. Estimators often put the value of an irrigation system up next to a new garage door and a fresh coat of paint on the exterior in regard to curb appeal and more value-adding benefits. Plus, it’ll pay for itself on your end and on the buyer’s end. Because irrigation systems are so impressive as far as water conservation, you’ll find that your water bill decreases enough to make the cost of the irrigation system installation more than reasonable. Added curb appeal in the form of ever-green grass and a well-landscaped yard adds its own set of benefits for a buyer that’s trying to sell, too.
