Sprinkler systems and drip irrigation systems are great ways to keep your landscape healthy, fresh, and green. A typical yard, with both planting beds and grassy areas, can benefit from both types of irrigation systems. The homeowner or business owner always saves money and time with these systems.

When you water your yard by hand, it's very easy to overwater plants. Much of the water ends up running off into other parts of your yard, which wastes that water or contributes to overwatering other sections of your yard. Since it's so difficult to water precisely with a hose, water waste is inevitable. Sprinkler systems cut down on that by distributing water evenly across a set coverage area. The sprinkler system only sprays as much water as you tell it to. Drip irrigation systems are even more effective. They drip water out of hoses at specific places, directly next to the plant base or root and use even less water than sprinklers. To find out how much water you can conserve, call 519-804-3220 today.
Less water used means a smaller water bill. Over time, the systems will earn back money through your utility bills and it's easy to justify the expense. Since you don't have to do the watering yourself, you're freeing up that much of your own time.
The best time of day to water is in the early morning, for a few reasons:
Leaves and stems don't get moistened, making it harder for fungi and disease to take hold. However, not many people want to wake up early every morning. That's why sprinklers and drip systems are so handy. They get up and water whenever you tell them to.
Since these systems deliver water precisely, every single time, there's no worry about overwatering, underwatering, or missing a spot. Properly maintained sprinkler and irrigation systems will keep your landscape healthy and green and you don't have to lift a finger.
