We all know the importance of watering our lawns and gardens in order to keep our grass and gardens green, beautiful, and healthy. Irrigation systems, sometimes referred to as sprinkler systems, are extremely important to those wishing to maintain healthy garden areas. Some homeowners mistakenly think that using a hose or sprinkler on their gardens once or twice per day is enough to adequately water a garden. The experts at Discount Service Company suggest homeowners consider the following tips to effectively irrigate their gardens.
Water in the morning and/or evening, depending upon factors such as heat, rain, and sun. Watering in the middle of the day can actually be harmful to plants in a garden area as they can quickly dry out from the hot sun shortly after watering.
Sometimes less is more. Your plants will thank you for providing them with smaller amounts of water at light pressure. Using a garden hose with a pressure nozzle, or flooding the garden with a hose can be detrimental to the plants. A light, fine mist is optimal.
Install an irrigation system. Irrigation systems are the best solution to your watering problem. Properly installed irrigation systems can provide the right amount of water to your garden, which will aid in providing fruitful harvests.
Irrigation systems can be tailored to suit your garden’s watering needs, which is far more beneficial than using hoses and sprinklers. Most irrigation systems have a monitor that will send a signal to disable the irrigation system in the event of a rain storm, which is good for your plants and pocketbook.
