When it comes to irrigation in the Northeast, there seems to be two schools of thought. The first is, “Let my lawn die, watering it costs too much money.” The other is, “We have to keep the lawn green, even if the water bill is high.” At Maxum Irrigation in Waterford, CT, the irrigation team provides a third solution: Keep your grass green and your water bill down by installing a smart irrigation system. Below, they answer four common questions about these systems.

What if my yard is oddly shaped?

irrigationNot a problem. Many irrigation companies offer Rain Bird’s® Variable Arc Spray Nozzles, which can be adjusted for arc height, flow, and radius. If you happen to change your landscaping and need to adjust your nozzle, a stainless-steel adjustment screw and a twist of the center collar will allow you to make changes to the system.

What if I have plants that require different amounts of water?

No matter if you have herbs, vegetables, or flowers, a team can set up a drip irrigation system in zones. This will deliver a customized and specific amount of water to each plant as needed, your plants will always be watered and your landscaping will look better than ever.

What if it’s raining?

All too often you’ll see dated irrigation systems on in the rain, which is an unnecessary waste of money. That’s why many modern irrigation systems come equipped with a rain sensor. These sensors will monitor weather conditions and ensure that if rain is falling, your irrigation system will be off.

What if my property isn’t very big?

Over-watering your lawn and plants can be as big of a problem as under-watering them. Using a sprinkler to cover your entire property may be fine for your garden, but your flowers and plants need varying amounts of water. That’s why customized drip irrigation systems are great for properties of any size.
