It is important to choose the right system to help your plants and lawn thrive and save water. Water is vital to any plant, but let’s be honest: no one wants to water by hand if they can avoid it.

Here are some benefits of our sprinkler systems:
You only have to install our sprinkler systems once, and then you can leave them for the whole season
You can water plants by turning on the spigot, so you don’t need to move hoses and sprinklers around
By adding a timer, your garden will water itself
You can easily install our garden sprinkler system yourself
You can customise our sprinkler systems so you can save water
How often should you water your garden?
When it comes to your garden, you certainly do not want to either under or overwater it, as both can ruin your lawn and plants. It is advised that you water your garden when the top of the soil - usually about an inch - is dry. This could be daily during the hot summer months, especially if there is a drought. During winter it won’t be necessary to water your garden daily due to rain. While it can be necessary to water your garden daily during summer, it is better for your lawn to be watered extensively about three times per week instead of every day.
The best time to water your garden is early in the morning because the warmth of the day will prevent fungal growth in the soil. It is not recommended that you water in the middle of the day as plants can get burnt by the sun, causing them damage. Of course, different plants will have different requirements, so make sure you water your plants correctly.
How do I know when to turn off my sprinkler system?
Did you know that overwatering your plants can be just as damaging as underwatering them? It is important to know when it is time to turn off the garden sprinkler system. Wet and wilting plants, yellow leaves, brown leaves, root rot and slow growth, are signs that your plants are getting too much water. It is always a good idea to check the dampness of the soil before you start watering. If the soil is damp, your plants usually don’t require water.
Tips for saving water during summer
While watering your garden is important, you also want to be conscious of water usage. Luckily, there are a few simple tips you can easily make in your garden to conserve water.
Adjust your sprinkler system, so you are only watering the lawn and garden and not accidentally watering your driveway or house
Use mulch around the base of your trees and plants. Mulch will help lock in moisture
Make sure your lawn is absorbing the water. If the water is running off the lawn, you may want to split watering time into shorter periods to allow better absorption
With these tips and tricks, you won’t be using more water than you actually need to, which both your plants and wallet will thank you for.
