Residential Irritation — Useful Tactics For Homeowners


You can keep a lawn healthy for a long time if you pay attention to irrigation. Even if you don't know much about it, you can still succeed by following these simple protocols.

Invest in an Automatic Irrigation System 

Watering the lawn by hand is simple, but it can waste time and money. A better option is to rely on an automatic system because it's easy to use and does all the work. All you have to do is set up sprinkler heads at suitable locations around your landscaping and figure out a watering schedule.

The system will take care of the rest, keeping your grass healthy and looking great throughout the year. Just make sure you account for the costs of one of these systems and hire a professional to install it. 

Find Out How Much Water is Needed

You don't want to give your lawn just any amount of water. Too much can make it difficult for your lawn to breathe, whereas not enough water can cause it to die pretty quickly. You have to give it the right amount, depending on your climate and the type of grass on your property. 

Fortunately, there are recommended water level charts that you can access for free online to see how much water your lawn needs every week. Just make sure you stick to the suggested schedule to avoid lawn-related issues. 

Collect Rainwater 

Instead of always relying on your home's water to keep your lawn healthy, there are other methods you might try. For instance, if you collect water when it rains, you can repurpose it to keep your grass healthy.

All you have to do is get some big barrels and set them outside before a storm hits your area. Rainwater will fill up each barrel, which you can then distribute across your lawn as you see fit. 

Review City's Irrigation Laws

Before investing in an irrigation system or developing an irrigation schedule, it's essential to review your city's laws regarding residential watering. If you know what they are, you can avoid penalties.

For instance, laws should say when you can water your lawn and how much water you can use. Fortunately, these regulations are readily available to the public. Just find out what they are before doing anything.

You have to care about irrigation to keep a lawn healthy long-term. You won't struggle if you use the right equipment and follow proven tactics. For more information on irrigation, contact a company near you.
