Installing a new irrigation or sprinkler system can help you have a more healthy lawn and landscape, while at the same time, saving you valuable hand-watering time, money, and water resources.
Take into account any landscape renovations and tree plantings you may be considering before the sprinkler system is installed. Prior to your consultation, consider sketching a plan of where you may want the system installed. Also consider your foundation needs - consistent year-round watering around your foundation will greatly reduce problems associated with contracting and expanding clay-based soils. Group plants that have similar watering needs. Ask your contractor about "hydrozoning" and other water conservation techniques for use with sprinkler systems, and be sure the final plan has yard sections logically zoned.
