Living in Tampa Bay, the weather is not very predictable with the exception of being hot and humid during the summer months. In warm climates it is important that you have a consistent means of watering your lawn. A sprinkler system can be beneficial all year round to a homeowner in Tampa Bay in many ways:

1.  Saves Time

A sprinkler system offers time-saving and energy-efficient lawn maintenance. You won’t have to spend another minute of your valuable leisure time watering the lawn. Your new system will do all the watering for you – even when you are away from home with built-in sensors and timers! No more rolling hoses in and out.

2.  Saves Water

An automatic sprinkler system can actually save you water by supplying the exact amount of water needed for your specific lawn and garden areas so it is not wasted. The well designed, efficient irrigation system will not waste water since it will automatically turn off with a timer or sensor. You will not forget to turn off the hose and waste water. Water conservation is appealing to most people to be environmentally conscious.

3.  Curb Appeal

A sprinkler system increases the aesthetics of your home’s curb appeal. Since attractive lawn and landscaping requires sufficient watering, an automatic sprinkler system ensures the plants to increase foliage growth, decrease the likelihood of yellow grass caused by drought and to live longer and grow healthier over time.

4.  Home Investment

A sprinkler system indirectly increases a home’s financial value by enhancing the home’s overall curb appeal especially when you are trying to sell the property.

5. Preserves Soil Structure and Nutrients

“Watering with a wide-open garden hose may allow too much water to seep into the soil. As a result, nutrients leach out with the water runoff, leaving the plants with fewer nutrients available. The soil may also become compacted when you water with a hose. Plants may show signs of withering or root disease with suffocating, compacted soil. Using either drip or sprinkler irrigation produces smaller droplets, helping to preserve nutrients and reducing soil compaction,” details Home Guides.
