Irrigation System Mistakes To Avoid
If you have a grass lawn and landscaping on your property, an irrigation system is a wise investment of time and money. Not only can it help you save water, but it helps you avoid standing outside for hours hand watering the lawn or dragging a sprinkler around where needed. While it is possible to install an irrigation system on your own, if not done properly it can lead to costly mistakes and damage to your lawn and property. At Challenger Irrigation, we proudly serve Hernando, Pasco, Pinellas, and Citrus counties and would love to help you with an irrigation system that is best for your property and your needs. However, if you already have an irrigation system, we want to share some helpful tips to avoid costly and damaging mistakes.
One of the most common mistakes is overwatering your property. While there may be strict watering restrictions, especially during the summer months, it is easy to overwater your lawn. A pre-programmed watering system can save time if you are forgetful about watering your lawn; however, due to the unpredictable nature of the weather in our area, it is still easy to overwater your lawn and landscaping. Overwatering can lead to mold and fungus developing in your lawn. We can help you install a rain sensor to shut off your system following heavy rain.
Inspect Your Property
Just like with anything in your home, irrigation systems can malfunction. Sprinkler heads can become clogged or remain upright becoming a target for things such as lawnmowers and children and pets running in the yard. Be sure to regularly inspect your irrigation system as well as the sprinkler heads. Faulty sprinkler heads can lead to a flood in your yard.
