How to Choose the Right Sprinkler System

According to HGTV, nearly 30 percent of your water bill stems from outdoor use. That’s why it’s imperative to have an efficient irrigation system. Sure, it helps to have various native and drought-tolerant plants.

But the right sprinkler system makes a world of difference. Keep reading to learn more.

In-Ground Sprinkler Systems

These underground pipes and channels deliver water to specific areas of your lawn and/or garden. In-ground sprinkler systems feature sprinkler heads that pop up to irrigate surrounding areas. Many homeowners appreciate such systems because you can put them on a timer to avoid water waste.

Are you particular about the appearance of your lawn? Well, you can rest easy knowing that in-ground sprinkler systems are nearly invisible. Not to mention, there’s no need to worry about running over any sprinkler heads while mowing.

Drip Irrigation Systems

Let’s say you want to provide some plants with smaller amounts of water distributed over an extended period of time. Thanks to drip irrigation systems, you can make this happen. As opposed to completely soaking delicate shrubs and perennials, a drip irrigation system penetrates deeper into the soil to the plants’ roots.

Homeowners can easily direct water to specific plants as well, making drip irrigation systems another popular choice.

Above-Ground Sprinkler Systems

As opposed to in-ground sprinkler systems, above-ground ones are connected to a hose. Unfortunately, the snaking of garden hoses in between above-ground sprinklers can be problematic in the long run. Don’t be surprised to find dead grass beneath these hoses.

Something else of note is that above-ground sprinkler systems can lead to expensive water bills. How exactly? Even just one afternoon of forgotten watering can cause quite the financial conundrum.
