If you want to have a greener lawn, you can be sure that you are going to need a good sprinkler system. You may even want to upgrade the sprinkler system you have if it is outdated and you want it to be more efficient and easy to use. There are also things like grey water that can be integrated into your irrigation design. Here are some tips to help make your lawn greener with modern irrigation solutions:
1. Modern Controls With Automation And Network Connections
Your landscaping may have controls that you set to water your lawn. Old irrigation controllers had simple timers that could be set for certain days and hours. Today, there are more advanced controllers that can use different information to optimize your irrigation systems. These can be controls that are connected to a personal weather station. They can also be connected to the Internet, which can provide your irrigation system with weather forecast information to help improve the irrigation of your lawn.
2. Drip Irrigation Integration For Plants That Do Not Require Sprinklers
Drip irrigation can be another great way to conserve water with your sprinkler system. Drip irrigation can be used for many of the plants in your landscaping that do not need broad watering, such as shrubs and flowers. This can be great for a flowerbed with only a few plants. It may not be good for areas with ground cover that needs more water like the grass in your lawn. There are shallow drip systems that can be buried beneath grass for a drip irrigation solution for your lawn and other ground cover plants.
3. Adding Grey Water Irrigation To Conserve Water
The grey water from your washer and other appliances can also be used for your irrigation. This water can drain directly to an irrigation system to help water your landscaping. This can help to conserve water and reduce your utility bills. If you have a home on a septic system, using grey water for irrigation can also help to reduce overburden problems that can cause the tank to become full and backup into plumbing and the drain field.
These are some ways that you can make sure your lawn stays green with modern irrigation. If you are ready to make sure your lawn is green, contact a well pump service to get help with the installation of systems for grey water irrigation and other solutions for your home.

When some friends had us over for dinner to enjoy a meal filled with garden fresh vegetables, we decided to plant one of our own. We started by asking our friends to show us how to level the land and prepare the soil. Next, we planted a variety of fruits and veggies that we thought we would actually eat. However, things quickly became tricky. We had to figure out how to keep each of the vegetables alive and well, which was easier said than done. This blog is all about learning how to grow a healthy garden. It was hard for us, but if you read these blogs, you might be able to learn from our mistakes.
