Irrigation is one of the most important factors in maintaining yard health, but watering your yard manually is both time-consuming and unreliable. Installing an automatic irrigation system keeps every inch of your lawn consistently watered, on schedule, without the need for human intervention.  

Different types of lawns respond differently to irrigation. Make sure you choose the right type of irrigation system for the health of your lawn.  

Irrigation Systems for Homes  

Irrigation systems hold several advantages that make them a popular choice amongst homeowners. Regular watering prevents weed growth, increases curb appeal and home value, and cuts down on overwatering, reducing costs and keeping nutrients in the soil where they can do the most good. The most popular types of home lawn irrigation systems are sprinkler, dip, and hybrid systems.  

Sprinkler Irrigation  

Sprinkler irrigation systems are one of the most common types of residential irrigation. Sprinkler systems use underground pipes and above-ground sprinkler heads to water the lawn in a controlled pattern. Different types of sprinkler heads have different strengths and weaknesses. For example, rotary sprinklers are ideal for watering large areas quickly, while spray heads are best for smaller lawns or areas with a non-uniform shape.  

Drip Irrigation  

Drip irrigation systems are designed to water the roots of your lawn directly. Drip systems rely on a series of underground hoses. These hoses contain several openings on their surface. During watering, water is released through these openings and absorbed by your lawn’s roots.  

Drip irrigation systems release only as much water is needed to water the lawn, making them an attractive eco-friendly irrigation option. Plus, with a drip system, there’s no need to worry about tripping on above-ground sprinkler heads.  

Hybrid System  

There’s no need to be pigeonholed into a single type of irrigation system. Hybrid and blended irrigation setups let you choose the best system for each section of your yard and install them together as one system. Hybrid systems can incorporate almost any type of irrigation system, including both sprinkler and drip systems.
