All it takes is five seconds.
Whether it’s fair or not, people make up their mind about your home within five seconds of seeing it. At that point, it’s tough to change anyone’s mind. First impressions go a long way, especially in appearance-driven Los Angeles.
Whether you live in Santa Monica or a valley suburb, it’s important to maintain your yard, as well as your house. Lawns containing wilted, dead grass, weeds, and uneven dirt patches suggest that you don’t care about your property.
So how do you fix it?
You can try watering the grass the traditional way, but hoses can be cumbersome, and more often than not, they just don’t get the job done.
Beyond appearances, you need to think long term. A well-preserved lawn can improve your home’s value down the road, which is why you should consider an irrigation system.
Using perfect planning and timing, sprinklers will keep your yard looking healthy and attractive. If you’re trying to decide if they’re right for you, here are a few factors to consider.
While you’ll definitely be spending a little money up front, over time you’re guaranteed to save.
Sprinklers excel at efficiency, delivering just the right amount of water. Contrast this to watering with a hose where you’ll almost certainly use more water than you need, thereby driving up your water bill.
Plus, the cost of maintenance is pretty low, but only if they were properly handled in the first place. For sprinkler installation Los Angeles can rely on, call Ritz Plumbing.
For years, our trained professionals have helped preserve the city’s lawns and outdoor spaces. We’ll make sure you’re set up properly so that you can start saving on your investment immediately.
In addition to money, you’ll also save time. You’ll no longer have to walk around your yard, dragging the hose to make sure you cover every square inch of space.
Even if you only are self-watering a couple times a week, those short blocks will still add up to a chunk of time that you can use to spend with your family, on work, or hobbies.
Health of your lawn
With regular, efficient watering, your grass will look better than ever. If you get too busy or forget, it won’t matter. Your lawn won’t have to suffer.
In addition to looking great, it’ll be less vulnerable to stress, weed infestation, and pests, which means you won’t have to use pesticide products.
Sprinkler systems are programmable in a variety of ways. Most importantly you can set them to run on a timer. They’ll run at the same moment on pre-chosen days, for a set amount of time, and shut off before wasting any water.
Compared to watering by hand, which is an imperfect system, you’ll save water.
You’ll never “drown” your lawn
Some people fear that without supervision, sprinklers will saturate their lawns, especially on rainy days. However, you can customize your system with a rain shutoff device, a humidity sensor, or a soil moisture sensor.
This way, your sprinklers will never unnecessarily operate, and your lawn will maintain the perfect amount of moisture.
