When it comes to home improvement projects, there simply isn't anything you can do to your home that will add as much value and appeal as quickly and dramatically as a well planned landscaping project. A beautiful well planned design does much more than just give your home curb appeal; it actually can make your home more energy efficient, provide privacy and make your property safer. The Nursery and Landscape Association reported that a well maintained lawn and garden could potentially add up to 15% to the value of your home.
When people begin to dream of a lush gorgeous landscape, they think trees, plants, fountains, flowers and other hardscape features. However, the irrigation system that will support your purchases and keep all your new plantings alive and healthy is just as important. Your irrigation system should be a consideration when beginning to plan your project. Underground sprinkler systems are most often used in landscaping designs for the ease of operation. Underground sprinklers are programmed to water your landscape at specified times, and take all of the guesswork out of irrigation. No more dragging the hose or the watering can.
Another type of automated system, the above ground drip line, emits water deep into the soil, which helps to promote root growth for stronger, healthier plants. Drip irrigation can also be used for large potted plants, and hanging baskets.
It is important that you have a clear idea of the needs of your landscape as well as your ability, time-wise, to meet those needs. If manual watering isn't going to be an option for you, then installing an automatic irrigation system before you start your project is definitely the way to go. An irrigation system can be installed at any stage in your landscape development, however before the sod or seed goes down is definitely the best time. When re-seeding a lawn or laying new sod, you should consider the addition of a regular schedule of pure clean water. Thoroughly soaking the new area will stimulate your plants to grow deeper roots, and improve the efficiency in absorbing nutrients from the soil.
