Getting your yard looking like a million bucks doesn’t cost that much. In fact, with minimal effort and regular application, you can maintain a pristine landscape. There’s no disputing, however, that the task of watering can be quite demanding, both physically, and financially. Like us, plants require water. Without it they wilt and loose their natural splendor. Irrigation is man’s century old solution to all those hurdles. Simply turn the valve and everything takes care of itself.
In terms of cost, setting up an irrigation system is expensive. On the flip-side, however, it’s only a once off cost and you’re set for many years.
Drill A Borehole: Say Goodbye To Municipal Water
Municipal water, though easily accessible, is generally expensive to say the least, and it’s unreliable at times. So what is your best option? Do yourself a favor and drill a borehole! This allows you to have a constant supply of free, clean water, which is a wise move now that drought is a perennial problem in most parts of the world. With your borehole drilled and the piping connected to the mains, installing your irrigation system remains.
Lawn Maintenance: Let Out The Sprinklers!
Invest in an automated sprinkler system. As for your flower beds, there are vertical sprayers that can be mounted at strategic positions amongst the flowers. Again, turn the tap and your yard will be engulfed in a cool mist that is is also perfect for any nearby vegetation. It’s really about taking plant care seriously. The other option homeowners have is drip irrigation. Preferable for fruit trees, vegetable gardens and bushes, drip irrigation is sustainable in the dry months when every drop counts.
Yes, irrigation systems are hefty to install, but you’ll certainly have the freedom to express your landscaping ideas without limitation. Consult with Hidden Creek Landscaping to design an irrigation system best fit for your yard.
