A Lawn Irrigation system will help maintain the value of your property. With proper lawn care and efficient watering of your lawn and plantings will help beautify your home.
- All irrigation systems must be installed properly and maintained regularly. An irrigation system is exposed to many elements: plows, car tires, lawn mowers, cold weather, etc. With family time becoming more valuable and you find that you do not have the time or knowledge to check you system, start up the system or program the system for different times of the year. Call Rainmaker Irrigation or send us a Service Request and we will promptly call you back and service your needs.
- Water your lawn deep, not often: It is recommended that your lawn receive 1” of water weekly. Also try to water in the early morning, between 5 a.m. & 10 a.m. The greatest waste of water comes from applying too much, too often – much of the water is never absorbed.
Instead of watering for one long session water a few times for shorter periods and take a break in between each session. This will allow water to soak in, while minimizing runoff. This will help establish stronger roots and a healthier lawn. As the sun becomes stronger in July and August the evaporation level is stronger and you should adjust your controller to run zones longer to ensure your lawn is getting enough water during these months.
- Install a rain sensor. In most states a rain sensor is now required. A rain sensor is a smart way to help conserve water.
- The best way to help conserve water and water your lawn, evenly and effectively: INSTALL AN IRRIGATION SYSTEM.
