It’s no secret that a beautiful lawn needs water to stay lush and green. While Southeast Missouri is lucky to get quite a bit of rain in the spring, rainfall in the summer can be intermittent causing lawns to suffer if they area don’t get a significant amount.

So what can you do to keep your lawn looking great all year, especially in the hot, dry months of summer?

Easy: install a sprinkler or irrigation system.

Use of a modern sprinkler system can benefit the health and appearance of your lawn and save you time and money over traditional hand watering methods.

A sprinkler system is one of the best ways to keep your lawn looking great, but it can also increase the value of your home. A home with an installed sprinkler and irrigation system can increase the value by up to 15 percent! It also allows buyers to know their potential new lawn is well cared for and will be easy to maintain.

Modern sprinkler systems are also better for the environment because they are designed to be as efficient as possible using moisture sensing technology. Meaning, they measure when your lawn needs to be watered and monitor the amount of water used at one time. This system keeps your lawn from being over watered while saving the amount of water used compared to traditional watering methods. These systems also reduce your monthly water bill and help the environment in times of drought! Additionally, a healthy lawn can reduce the emission of greenhouse gases around your home, produce oxygen and decrease surface temperature, allowing it to be naturally cooler, therefore decreasing the amount of energy needed to run your air conditioning.

One of the most redeeming qualities of a sprinkler system is their convenience. Instead of praying for rain or dragging a cumbersome garden hose around, let your lawn water itself. The recommended time to water your lawn is early in the morning hours, but who honestly wants to wake up early just to water their lawn? With a modern sprinkler system, you can get a few extra minutes of sleep by programming your system to water without your oversight. You can also set your system to water your lawn while you’re away or cancel a watering if rain is in the forecast all from your smartphone!

As you can see, a sprinkler system is a modern and low maintenance way to keep your lawn healthy and green without doing much work. Interested in having one installed in your yard?
