The green space around your business is just as much an investment as the building itself. Having a well-manicured green space reflects your business’s brand and personality. That’s why it’s important to keep it well maintained.
Maintenance doesn’t just include weeding and mowing the lawns to make sure everything is neat and tidy. It also means regular watering to ensure your plants continue to be lush and healthy. However, manual daily watering can be time-intensive and expensive. It can also be wasteful.
There are many reasons to consider installing an irrigation system to water your company’s green space. Here are just a few.
It Saves Time and Labour
Hand watering or manual sprinklers will require careful planning and long man-hours. And, with the best times to water a lawn and garden being between four and ten AM, it may be a challenge to find a dedicated staff member to regularly handle the job. An outdoor irrigation system allows a company to set their water times for maximum effectiveness without human intervention.
It’s Strategically Designed for Maximum Effect
A professionally laid out irrigation system is one that is strategic in all aspects of water disbursement, from placement to position to the direction of water flow. This avoids runoff on sidewalks and driveways where water is wasted and ensures water gets exactly where it needs to be.
It’s Subtle and Aesthetically Pleasing
Irrigation systems remove the unsightly appearance of hoses and sprinklers and are installed underground with only the sprinkler heads visible while in use. This ensures your business’s exterior is never obstructed by unsightly landscaping items that ruin the environment’s visual appeal.
It Keeps Your Lawn and Plants Healthy
Depending on the soil conditions, and the general climate in your area, your lawn will require 30-60 minutes of watering twice a week. Too much or too little water will result in a deterioration of your plants and your landscape will begin to appear unhealthy. By installing a professional-grade irrigation system, you can cater your watering to your landscape and ensure the plants get the correct amount of water that they need to thrive.
It Saves Money
There are many types of irrigation systems that are programmable to release only the right amount of water. This ensures less waste and lower water bills. By using techniques such as drip irrigation or timing devices, you’ll be making sure your business will waste less water. Automating the process also reduces or eliminates man-hours, helping you put less stress on the environment while reducing monthly costs.
