Having an irrigation system is a great way to promote uniform watering. At some point in the growing season, it will be necessary to supplement water for your lawn or landscape. Adequate watering can be done through the use of an irrigation system if the system is programmed and functions correctly. Too much water is not a good thing. If your grass or plant receives too much water on a regular basis, it can cause root rot. Excessive water can also encourage fungus development.
It is essential to make sure that your irrigation system has head to head coverage. Head to head coverage means that your entire lawn is getting the right coverage and no areas are missed. It may also be necessary to adjust your irrigation heads so that they are not watering undesired areas such as hard surfaces. A good irrigation company will check the head coverage of each zone when the system is started up in the spring.
