With these common answered, we hope you'll be able to learn more about the benefits of our inground sprinkler systems.

Q: Don't sprinkler systems waste time and money.not save it?

A: While this is a common misconception, the truth is that a well-designed and professionally installed inground sprinkler system will actually save water, time and money. Our customizable and programmable sprinkler systems, with weather sensor technology, are designed to prevent water run-off that occurs from over watering. This allows your inground sprinkler system to water each area of your lawn and garden at the most optimal times, using only the necessary amount of water. On days where Mother Nature has taken care of the watering for you, your system will automatically shut off to conserve water. All of these features help to prevent overwatering, which will help you conserve water, reduce your utility bills and save time.

Q: Is it cheaper to install my own irrigation system?

A: There are a lot of places in life where a do-it-yourself project usually means it will cost you less, but installing your own irrigation system is not one of them.

While you might save a few dollars up front, installing your own irrigation system will end up costing you more in the long run after unnecessary repairs and expensive maintenance. To ensure your irrigation system is properly installed and in optimal working condition, you should hire a trained professional to complete the installation. Not only will a trained technician install your system quickly, efficiently and correctly, but they will also respect your property, performing the task without interfering with your existing landscape.

Q: Will a sprinkler system actually water my lawn thoroughly?

A: This is an important question. You certainly don't want to spend time and money having a sprinkler system installed if it's not going to get the job done right. Fortunately, an inground irrigation system will do a more thorough job at watering your lawn than manually watering it with a garden hose. A programmable, customizable and professionally installed irrigation system will deliver an even and consistent amount of water to your property and even ensure that special plants receive the proper attention they need for optimal growth and health.
