Installing an automatic irrigation system is the single most important thing homeowners can do to backup their investment in landscape improvements. With consistent irrigation, landscape plants grow larger, healthier, and more resistant to drought and disease. Today’s high-tech drip irrigation systems sense water needs and deliver precisely measured amounts of water directly to the root zone of growing plants. In a disaster scenario, an irrigated lawn and landscape can create a living barrier that protects you, your family, and your home from advancing wildfires. Throughout the year, automatic landscape irrigation systems will keep your lawn and landscape healthy and green.image1

Professionally installed drip irrigation systems simulate the natural water table by delivering water directly to the subterranean root zone. Regulated drips of water are targeted directly at the roots of growing plants to keep pests, insects, and aboveground fungal diseases to a minimum. In addition to improving plant health, drip irrigation reduces the number of unwanted plants and weeds that invade landscape beds. With sensors that detect moisture needs, plants consistently receive the right amount of water. Drip irrigation ensures your lawn and landscape will always be lush and green, and you’ll never lose another plant to over watering, under watering or inconsistent soil moisture.

Drip irrigation systems with adjustable moisture sensors transport water directly to plants with zero waste. Additional features for distributing lawn chemicals and fertilizer can be incorporated into irrigation systems to minimize regular maintenance. The professional design and installation team at Green Acres is trained to construction drip irrigation systems tailored to meet the moisture requirements of individual landscape areas. Depending on plant requirements, sensors can be programmed to deliver water in varying quantities and frequencies. Moisture sensors deliver exact amounts of water based on moisture requirements affected by plant type, soil drainage, and sun exposure. Even in windy areas, drip irrigation effectively eliminates waste from overspray and surface evaporation.

According to water use statistics, low-flow drip irrigation systems are 30 to 50% more efficient compared to high-pressure sprinkler systems. Because drip irrigation systems use smaller pipes than high-pressure sprinkler systems, the installation process is less invasive. In most cases, sod can be carefully removed and replaced to ensure seamless, non-invasive construction and a flawless lawn. Small-scale installations can be completed in as little as one day and larger systems can be done in less than a week. All irrigation systems installed by Green Acres are constructed with high-quality parts, including pumps, filters, ball valves, and other components, to provide years of reliable service.

With drip irrigation, water, fertilizer, and lawn chemicals are safely introduced underground, so water is never wasted and pollutants never enter the municipal water supply. Drip irrigation systems are so efficient they are often exempt from water restrictions and seasonal ordinances on irrigation implemented during prolonged drought. Investing in a professionally installed irrigation system is investing in the future health of your landscape and prized specimens. Without proper maintenance and irrigation, investments in landscape material will eventually deteriorate. Consistent moisture from an automatic irrigation system ensures your care-free landscape always looks its best with as little maintenance as possible.
