How to Keep Your Yard Hydrated

»Posted by on Oct 10, 2019 in Landscaping Service | 0 comments

The days begin getting cooler as we move into the fall. However, the rain appears to come less often. Of course, to keep your yard hydrated, you’ll probably have to complement the rain. This is particularly true if your yard survived the summer’s extreme heat and you are attempting to maintain a green and lush yard for a long as possible. The truth is that there are a lot of ways to water your yard. However, several methods work better than others. This varies on your Penrith Landscaping and the energy and time you’ve got to spare.  

Watering Goals 

Your goal is going to be the same whatever watering method you select. You’ve got to remember this. A lush and healthy yard requires being deeply watered so that it could grow deep roots. The root system develops shallowly and the yard will not be as healthy whenever a yard is only watered shallowly but regularly. Grass requires an inch of water every week in general. It can either be as a deep watering or a good soaking rain.  

Hand Watering 

The most labor and time-intensive way to hydrate your yard is hand watering. You’ve got to disperse the water over the yard area physically with the use of a gasp with a sprayer attachment or a wand. It is extremely hard to actually water the lawn deeply if you use this technique.  

Sprinklers 

For watering yards, the sprinkler method is by far the most popular technique. In terms of cost and effort, it is a cheerful medium between hand watering and irrigation. There are a lot of various kinds of sprinklers as well. This includes oscillating, impact, and stationary. Oscillating sprinklers spray a fan of water in an arc back and forth. This covers a full rectangle of the area. They are great for covering big yards. Impact sprinklers spray water jets in a circular pattern. It looks like a water gun that is spinning around.  Stationary sprinklers constantly spray water into a particular area. This makes them perfect for reaching grass behind landscape elements or around corners.  

Last but not least, traveling sprinkler is a type of sprinkler that travels throughout the yard as it waters. It is like a combination between a Roomba and a sprinkler. This type of sprinkler is only excellent at level and big areas.  

Built-In Irrigation 

The most convenient water system is a built-in irrigation system. These systems are permanent. However, they are also the most costly system. With this, you don’t have to do anything. All you’ve got to do is to set the timer and the system will do the rest. Since the system needs digging trenches for the pipes, the upfront cost can be expensive. However, you also have to consider several maintenance expenses. But, you’ve got to keep in mind that this system will save you effort and time.  

Choosing the best way to keep your yard hydrated will depend entirely on you. If you’ve got the budget, you can always count on a built-in irrigation system.
