irrigationYou’ll definitely need to irrigate your landscape and turf this summer. While you want it all green and lush, you’ll need to use water conservatively. Water efficiency helps you save water bill costs and prevent over or under watering, which ultimately affects your landscape quality. Below are best irrigation practices that will enhance your landscape appearance and conserve water:

The irrigation system should be designed in a way that uses water resources efficiently. Ensure the hardware meets the manufacturer standards to ensure its durability and avoid water leakages. Lastly, let a professional plumber install your irrigation hardware in a way that meets the design criteria.

Adjustment of irrigation schedule

If you’ve been irrigating your plants the same amount of water throughout different seasons, you might have been over-watering or under-watering them. You’ll need more water during summer than winter or spring. You might also need to adjust your irrigation hours to late evenings or early mornings during summer. This will help to avoid losing water to the glaring sun.
