This damage can manifest itself in brown or yellow grass, which not very eye-catching for the curb appeal of your home. Fortunately, the Fort Worth TX lawn care experts know this dehydration is a common occurrence and are here to help.
Reasons to Install Installing a new sprinkler or irrigation system is one of many landscaping projects that can be done in an effort to boost the aesthetics of your home. Besides adding appeal to your lawn and garden, an irrigation system can provide your lawn with the sought-after hydration it needs to look and be healthy. Sprinkler installation eliminates hand watering your lawn or garden, which can be time-consuming, as well as a physical issue.
Sprinkler System Selection There are several different sprinkler systems to choose from. Our Fort Worth sprinkler system contractors can help you in choosing which one suits your property the best, installing it for you without any worry on your part. Here are three of the more commonly installed underground sprinklers:
• Spray Sprinkler: These sprinklers have small heads that pop up from the ground to water your lawn. The heads can spray in radius ranges from 10-15 feet, and they can spray in full circles, half circles or quarter circles.
• Rotor Sprinkler: These sprinklers rotate to deliver water. They have larger radius ranges (30-90 feet), which make them prime for larger lawns. Rotor sprinklers are a little slower in providing irrigation, but they benefit wider, flatter areas better than installing multiple spray sprinklers.
• Drip Sprinkler: These sprinklers use hoses or tubes to deliver water. They work well with flower beds or non-lawn areas. If installed properly, drip irrigation can save money and time, as it applies water directly to the soil and eliminates excess spraying.
Alternative Options For those looking for immediate irrigation but do not have the money to install a new sprinkler system, there are temporary sprinklers that will suffice. These are plastic sprinkler systems you can attach to your garden hose. They do not have timers and must be turned on and off manually.
