Irrigation systems are investments that help homeowners create and maintain a healthy and appealing lawn throughout the seasons. If you’re constantly struggling to provide your lawn with the proper care it needs, an irrigation system can help. Continue reading to identify three signs indicating that your lawn needs an irrigation system.
If you’re noticing variations in colors across your lawn, this is generally a sign indicating that your lawn isn’t receiving a sufficient amount of water and your grass is in need of some good irrigation. Lawn irrigation systems are often the best solution for evenly distributing water across your landscape, allowing you to create and maintain a healthy and green lawn without discoloration due to dry spots, dead patches of grass, lawn disease, uneven watering, fungus growth, and many more factors.
The Footprint Test
The footprint test is a simple trick used on lawns to help identify if they’re lacking moisture. Often all the test requires is for you to walk on your lawn and detect the impression of your footprint. If your footprint doesn’t disappear after a while, then this is a sign that your lawn is lacking the proper irrigation. It’s also important to be aware of grass blades that wilt, crunch, curl, or cup inward after the footprint test because these are signs indicating your grass is dehydrated and under stress. Lawn irrigation systems play a major role in helping homeowners efficiently water their grass, providing their lawns with constant water and care throughout the seasons.
Your Existing System Is Outdated
Often many homes have preexisting lawn irrigation systems installed that are broken or outdated, resulting in an ineffective method of watering your lawn. An outdated or broken irrigation system clearly indicates that your lawn needs a new irrigation system, ensuring that your lawn remains healthy, green, beautiful, and lush. Listed below are some key indicators that it’s time to invest in a new lawn irrigation system:
- Leaks in your system
- Frequent malfunctions and repairs
- Dry patches or puddles in your lawn from over and underwatering
- Low water pressure
- Increase in your water bill
