Sprinkler Systems – Common Questions Answered

Have you toyed with the idea of installing an in-ground sprinkler system in your yard or at your business? Are you tired of how much time and effort it takes to keep your lawn green with a standard hose and sprinkler? Here are answers to some of the most common questions we’re asked:

Q: Will I save water (and therefore money) by installing a sprinkler system?
A: Yes! By installing a well-designed system appropriate to your landscaping needs, your lawn and gardens will get the perfect amount of water it needs. You don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn off the hose since our timers do the work for you. Plus, a rain sensor will shut off your system if it’s not needed.

Q: I’m too busy to worry about watering my grass. Will a sprinkler system save me time?
A: Definitely! Our professionals will set your timers for the needs of your garden and lawn and you won’t need to worry about it at all. Plus, unless you’re a really early riser, chances are it will be on and off before you even get out of bed, keeping your lawn the perfect shade of green.

Q: How do I know that my plants aren’t getting too much water if I’m not doing it by hand?
A: Our team of specialists come to your home and design a sprinkler system to match the specific needs of your lawn and garden – one size does not fit all! Different products will be used so that all areas of your yard get the ideal amount of moisture, from trees to grass to bushes and flowers. Plus, instead of spending your time watering, you can take time to stop and smell the roses!

Q: I’m really not tech-savvy. Is a sprinkler system really difficult to use?
A: While a basic sprinkler controller and timer is fairly easy to use and make adjustments to, we do offer the latest “smart” controllers which essentially do all the work for you. They even can make adjustments to your systems not only based on current rainfall, but on changing weather and temperature, so you don’t even have to think about it.

Q: I see DIY sprinkler kits for sale at my home and garden store. Couldn’t I just install it myself and save some money?
A: You might save some money in the short term, but it’s important to understand that a good sprinkler system goes beyond the actual product.  An irrigation company like Nutri-Lawn Inground Sprinkler Systems brings both knowledge and know-how to create the perfect design for your lawn and garden’s needs and for your budget – making it both efficient and cost-effective.

If you were to go ahead with a DIY system remember to consider all the factors such as the time involved (it could take more than just a few days if you have a large yard), tools needed, existing landscaping that might need to be moved and your local plumbing and electrical codes including backflow requirements.
