You’re likely already aware that landscaping is an excellent investment, both for the future resale value of your home, and also simply for the joy it can provide in the meantime. But did you know that landscaping can add up to 28% to the value of a home? Or that a study from Texas AandM University shows that simply looking at trees can produce a significant reduction in stress?
Having an amazing yard space and lawn comes at a cost. The Lawn Institute reports that Americans spend about $6.4 billion a year on lawn care, not to mention innumerable hours spent watering, mowing, or performing tree maintenance. If you want the beauty and value of a beautiful outdoor space, without the expensive and time-consuming upkeep, an irrigation system might be in your best interest. Check out more reasons below:
It’ll Save You Time
An irrigation system will do all the watering for you, giving you time to dream up all sorts of home improvement projects both inside and outside. Plus, since you don’t have to be around to make sure that your lawn and landscaping are properly hydrated, you have the freedom to travel, for days or even weeks at a time, without the fear of coming home to a parched, dead lawn.
It’ll Save Money
Sure, there’s an initial investment in an irrigation system, but it will pay for itself in several ways. First, you’ll save money because you no longer have to worry about hiring a landscaper to help with your lawn care and gardening. You will also save money on your water bill — since irrigation and sprinkler systems don’t waste nearly as much water as doing it yourself. The system can be programmed to water during non-peak times, and it uses only the amount needed for each particular area, dependent on the sun and shade it regularly receives.
It’ll Save Water
Use automated irrigation systems to customize the water your lawn gets — with very minimal water waste occurring. This is great for the environment, your water bill, and your lush, green grass.
Don’t hesitate to have an irrigation system installed. You’ll love how worry-free and cost-efficient such a system can make your lawn maintenance — and how beautiful it can make your lawn.
