Why is Irrigation Maintenance Important?
The answer is obvious; to have a lush, green landscape.
The most popular type of irrigation system is an in-ground sprinkler system. The thing is; sprinkler heads are easy to damage or break. We’ve heard all the stories. My kid stepped on it, I mowed over it, someone drove over it, etc.
If your sprinklers are damaged in any way, water is being wasted and that’s bad news for you. Not only will your water bill go up, but your grass and plants will suffer.
A properly working irrigation system should distribute an inch of water in 15 minutes. The amount of water your lawn needs depends a great deal on which type of grass you have and which season of the year it is.
Another thing that impacts how much water your lawn needs is the type of soil you have. It is difficult for water to be fully absorbed in clay soil and it does not drain well. Clay soil is very common in the DFW area.
If your yard has a sloped area, the water will run down the hill before it can be soaked in. This causes all kinds of problems.
Here’s an article to help you get started titled, “Setting Your Water Sprinklers: When and How Long.”
Signs That Your Irrigation System Needs To Be Checked Out
