Investing in a lawn irrigation system is a smart choice for homeowners who want their lawns to look great without dedicating several hours to hand watering it. Hiring a professional to maintain your system is also a smart decision. With regular maintenance done by a professional irrigation specialist, you will get the most out of your lawn sprinkler system investment.

The Professional Advantage

If you install a lawn irrigation system, chances are that you are hoping for a beautifully maintained lawn where you don’t need to worry about watering. If you set up your system yourself, you will likely not get all the potential benefits from the system. Unless you are an expert, you won’t know how to set the timing and pressure, how to place and angle the heads, and you will need to spend much more time working with your system than you anticipated. If you don’t use a professional to maintain your system, you will likely find that it isn’t doing what you’d hoped – which is to get you a beautiful property with less effort. When you have a professional setting up and maintaining your system, you can rest assured that you are getting every possible benefit.

Save Time

Unless you are a landscaping or lawn irrigation system expert, doing the maintenance yourself will take much more time than most of us are willing or able to invest. If you do the maintenance yourself, you will need to take the time to check all the lines for clogs, heads for damage, and overall system checks. Starting your system in the spring and winterizing in the fall can be time consuming jobs if you don’t know what you are doing, and if you make a mistake, you can seriously damage your system. Having a professional who knows exactly what they are looking for and how to handle problems will save you time.

Save Money

Many think that DIY projects will save you money, but this often isn’t the case with irrigation systems. If you don’t know what you are looking for, trying to do your lawn sprinkler system maintenance on your own can often cost you money in the long run. Homeowners who don’t know what they are looking for often end up missing leaks that will waste water and drive up water bills, fail to keep lines clear, and they may not notice a problem until it needs significant repair. Having your system regularly maintained will help to avoid many of the more costly issues that a sprinkler system may have during its life.

Professionals Know Exactly What Maintenance Your System Will Need

When you have someone who knows what they are looking for, they will do what is necessary to keep the system running smoothly. A landscape professional will recognize the signs of a problem that may be imminent and can often get the problem fixed before you would even know it’s there. Rather than needing to research every time, a professional will know what maintenance needs to happen at various points during the year and can get the system in place in the spring, keep it running well in the summer, and make sure it is thoroughly drained and winterized in the fall. They know the signs in your lawn that tell them there are areas getting too much water or not enough, and will know how to correct the pressure and angle of the heads to fix these issues.

Hiring a professional to maintain your lawn sprinkler system is exactly what you need to keep your lawn healthy, your curb appeal high, and your investment protected. The right crew will always know what to do and when to do it, and you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your beautiful property.
