Avoiding Lawn Sprinkler System Disasters

lawn sprinkler systems Charlotte
Lawns are a point of pride for many homeowners. Your lawn is the first thing people notice when they pull into your driveway, and they are the main ingredient for your home's outdoor flair. To ensure your lawn radiates a welcoming atmosphere, it needs proper hydration. A Charlotte lawn sprinkler system can help your yard reach its full potential.

A lawn sprinkler system that is installed correctly keeps your soil moist and helps your grass get the mineral nutrients needed for optimal growth. It is important that your lawn receives adequate water, especially during a dry summer. Unfortunately, many lawn sprinkler systems are not installed correctly and end up doing more harm than good.

"I have seen many sprinkler systems that are designed poorly, and they end up hurting the homeowners lawn," said John Minor, owner of Irrigation and Lighting Specialist. "You don't want to flood your grass or waste water. With today's advancements and our expertise, we ensure your grass is getting the right amount of water and you are getting optimal coverage from your system without running up your water bill."

Common Concerns for Charlotte Lawn Sprinkler Systems

Many advancements have been made in lawn sprinkler systems, methods and technology, but that means nothing unless they are utilized properly. Let's take a look at six common concerns Charlotte homeowners face with lawn sprinkler systems - so you can avoid a disaster!

  • Head to Head Water Coverage - A properly designed sprinkler system starts with water coverage that overlaps. The water from your sprinkler head should reach the heads across and beside them. This ensures the ideal hydration level for your yard in the shortest time and without wasting water. 
  • Nozzle Selection and Head Adjustments - Correctly tuned water devices are important. Make sure your sprinkler heads are pointed slightly upward or downward for slopes. Nozzles exist for various angles, as well as adjustable nozzles that can be set for any degree. This contributes to the effectiveness of your sprinkler system. 
  • Controllers - A controller is a great addition to any lawn sprinkler system. They automatically turn your system on and off and maintain your lawn's watering schedule. You can also adjust how long and how often your sprinkler system will operate. These user-friendly controllers can help you avoid wasting money by and ensuring that you aren't overwatering. 
  • Automatic Rain Shut-Off Devices - Having your sprinklers run while it is raining is like setting your money on fire. Not only does it waste money, it can also flood your lawn and drown your grass. An automatic rain shut-off device will automatically cut off your sprinkler system when it starts to rain so you can reduce water waste while saving your wallet and grass. 
  • Weatherization - Winter shutdown and spring startup procedures vary in different areas. Some systems have automatic drains valves and some require a manual procedure. In addition, valves and back-flow devices should be covered during the winter months to avoid damage. We can properly start up or close down your system so you can avoid costly damage that occurs from neglect.
