An in-ground sprinkler system might seem like a high-tech luxury for the elite, but it’s actually just an easy and efficient way of keeping your lawn and garden healthy. You may be surprised to learn that sprinkler systems are affordable, too. Modern sprinkler systems are designed to deliver just the right amount of water to your grass and plants to keep them green and healthy. Sprinkler systems offer myriad environmental, financial, and aesthetic benefits to the homeowner.

Environmental Benefits

  • Modern sprinkler systems use sophisticated moisture sensors, water gauges, and timers to ensure only the amount of water your lawn needs is delivered. Such irrigation systems are designed to NOT waste water. In fact, they save water when compared to imprecise manual watering. The following graphic from RainBird shows the difference in water use between manual watering and automatic watering.

Financial Benefits

  • A well cared-for and beautiful lawn with an in-ground sprinkler system can increase a home’s property value by an average of 15%.
  • Since a sprinkler system uses just the right amount of water, you can save money on your water bill when compared to manual watering.
  • You’ll save lots of time by not dragging around a hose as you did when you previously  watered your lawn manually.

Aesthetic Benefits

  • Lawns that are watered properly by an in-ground sprinkler system look healthy and green, greatly increasing the curb appeal of your property.Interested in helping your lawn reach its full potential? Consider Bio Green’s lawn care services to ensure your lawn gets all the nutrients it needs too!
