Benefits of an In-Ground Sprinkler System: A professionally installed in-ground sprinkler system can provide multiple benefits beyond regulated water distribution. Proper lawn maintenance requires commitment and hard work to ensure lush green grasses surround your home. Following the steps of planting and fertilization comes the most important part of the process, water application. Above ground systems often require multiple hoses, adapters, sprinkler heads and constant movement rearranging the system. The use of an above ground unit also requires constant observation to ensure proper water distribution and that the system is functioning properly. An in-ground sprinkler system can help to alleviate these nagging issues while saving a homeowner both time and money. Following are the most beneficial factors of having a professional irrigation system installed for your home or business. Minimal Effort As mentioned, providing proper irrigation requires more hard work from the business or homeowner. Hoses need to be attached, then properly placed with the irrigation unit secured and clear of any obstruction. Depending on the size of the space in need of water, multiple hoses may be required as well as constant movement of the above ground system. If the unit does not reach the entire area it must be repositioned in order to ensure that all of the grass receives a proper water supply. Consequently, reorganizing the sprinkler multiple times may cause some areas of the lawn to receive excess water or none at all if not correctly placed during irrigation. Further, movement of the above ground system often requires a complete shutdown of the water supply before any transition can take place. Increased work is required by having to shut off the water at the source prior to moving the unit and then initiating supply in a new area. None of these factors apply to an in-ground sprinkler system. Once installed, the unit can be programmed to apply water at designated times to not interfere with usage. Also, proper application areas are predetermined ensuring that the entire lawn receives sufficient water application during every irrigation cycle. After installation, watering takes place with the push of a few buttons as opposed to dragging hoses and equipment over an entire property. Curb Appeal Having multiple hoses scattered throughout your lawn with various watering units attached not only presents tripping hazards but is also extremely unseenly. The hose reels, hose extensions and end devices only take away from the landscape one is trying to accomplish through precision watering. A professionally installed in-ground sprinkler system however takes nothing away from the lawn itself. Sprinkler heads are only visible when in-use and nothing takes away from the landscape. Instead of having excessive equipment scattered over the lawn, no part of the in-ground system distracts from the luscious lawn created by proper hydration achieved with the benefits of an in-ground unit. Proper Coverage Further, in order to ensure every blade of grass receives an adequate water supply movement of an above-ground system must be constantly taking place. Only by creating more work and headache for the homeowner does the above-ground system prove capable. In fact, if not handled properly certain areas may receive too much water creating even more issues for lawn growth. Only through increased work and added experimentation can a homeowner ensure proper hydration for every square inch of the landscape. Constant monitoring is required to keep each target area addressed during above-ground system use. However, an in-ground system can be constructed ensuring that each sprinkler head rotates through precise cycles hydrating each area of the lawn. Heads can be spaced sporadically and then programmed so that no area of the lawn receives excess water. The heads can be programmed to operate in zones making sure that no overlap occurs and all areas of the landscaped space are thoroughly addressed. Time Saving The constant monitoring of an above-ground system requires a lot of excess time from the homeowner. Personally timing each watered area and observing to make certain the watering unit is functioning properly adds excessive work and consideration. A pre-programmed in-ground system requires none of the above. After setting the system to water, which can often be set for multiple days, the time on task required for watering is close to zero. By utilizing the "set it and forget it" feature of an in-ground sprinkler system, time can be better spent on other activities. Whenever you elect to reap the benefits of an in-ground system, the professional staff at Water Solutions Sprinkler Service will be happy to help you decide on the best option for your Denver area lawn or garden focusing on individual needs and budget.

Choosing the Right Sprinkler System for Your Yard: As spring and summer approach keeping your lawn or garden watered consistently becomes even more of a priority. Water is the essential nutrient for all life but a lack thereof or overabundance can cause serious problems. A perfect balance can be maintained by installing a sprinkler system that can ensure both the proper coverage and amounts to a specified area. Watering needs will be dependent on a variety of factors, including the aforementioned coverage and amounts. Other variables may be the type of foliage or groundcover in need and the amount of natural rainfall occurring. Fortunately, new watering systems have been designed to address these circumstances. Review the following sprinkler systems and dependent on your individual needs a rotary system might be the best option for you. Spray System One of most common system used for watering the spray method is comprised of pop-up heads that disperse water, however they can provide water inadequately. Often the heads can be adjusted according to the application area. Most rotations will be full circle, half circle, or even quarter-circle depending on head placement and target. Traditionally, multiple heads are used to comprise the system allowing for maximum coverage. Heads can also be programmed in variable "zones" to limit water supply, target a specific area, or rotate through if certain areas need utilized during the time of spray. While this is a common system it's not the best option for all yards and can leave zones where no water is dispersed. Soaker Hoses These hoses are most commonly used in gardens as they can provide water to an individual plant or specific area. Instead of dispersing the water throughout a large coverage area only the ground and plants in line with the actual hose receive nourishment. Water seeps through the actual hose instead of spraying through the air. Typically, soaker hoses can be attached to regular hoses allowing for more coverage without wetting walkways, paths or the area closest to the water supply line. Drip System If water usage is a concern a drip system may provide the answer depending on the plants, grass, or soil in need. Drip irrigation basics include water being emitted slowly allowing for the subject to absorb all that is applied. Loss that may occur as a result of runoff, wind, or evaporation with spray units will not occur with a drip system. These types can be modified to meet the needs of almost any subject. Similar to soakers in terms of application, the drip system provides adequate coverage for those worried about water use and cost. Rotor System Similar to the spray system, a rotor system can be adjusted to fit a variety of needs but are usually reserved for covering large areas. While utilizing maximum coverage areas, rotors apply water at lower rates than traditional spray heads and are known as the most efficient system in the world. We are happy to assist you with determining which sprinkler systems will best suit your needs this year.

Preparing Spring Mulching for Your Landscaping in Denver, CO: Now that spring is here, it is one of the best times to plan your mulching needs for your landscaping in Denver, CO. Mulching is important to maintain the quality of your lawn and landscaping. Learn why you should mulch this spring, types of mulch available and tips during the process. Why Should I Mulch? Mulch will help your plants, trees and shrubs in a way that soil is not able to. It creates an added layer that provides nutrition benefits to the plant's roots. When there isn't mulch placed around a plant, weather elements can lead to important nutrients to be carried away. Mulch also helps to maintain the temperature of the plant. This added layer also works to make the plants get a proper amount of water that it needs. You will also appreciate how mulching will avoid weeds from surfacing that you would have to spend time removing. In addition to controlling weeds, mulching also helps to deter pests that might have more easy access to the tree, plant or shrub. Last, there are many types of plants that helps the overall aesthetic appeal of your home. Types of Mulch When it comes to types of mulch to add to your landscaping, there are many go-to types. A top choice among many homeowners is shredded hardwood. You will find this mulch in a variety of colors from deep browns to red in color. In addition, you can also find various colors of wood when it comes to mulch. Another premier type of mulch is cocoa mulch. It gets this name as it can emit the smell of cocoa. For a more natural look, you can choose to add straw mulch. It is a very natural look. You can also use your remaining grass clippings as well to serve as mulch. Last, you can choose compost as a mulch around your plants. Many love this option because it is organic and does not need to be replaced multiple times per year the way other mulches do. Tips for Spring Prior to starting the mulching process, it is important to pull any weeds in the area you will be mulching. Once you are ready to apply the mulch, you will only need one or two inches. You want to be sure to not over-do it on the mulch as your plants, trees and shrubs will not be able to get the nutrients they need if there is too much.
