What benefits can a new irrigation watering system provide you? J.W. Lawncare Inc is here to create a set of sprinklers and landscape watering tools to take your garden to the next level.

Save time, money, water, and effort while enjoying the benefits of the irrigation systems that only we can create.

Improved Growth

While there are many advantages for you to enjoy from our watering systems, the most important aspect is how it helps your plants. Because it is more efficient, you can always count on your new sprinkler system to evenly water your garden a precise amount. Under- or over-watering is a worry of the past, meaning your plants grow stronger, never missing a watering because you are too busy. Automatically upkeep your garden so you have more time to enjoy it.

Water Savings

Do not assume that to have vibrant and beautiful flowers you need to spend a lot on your water bill. Most of the time, replacing an old system or creating a new one results in significantly less water usage. It is easy to fall into bad habits of using too much water when you are watering by hand. This is bad for your plants as well as your wallet. An automatic system always uses the right amount of water and is set on a routine. Your specific water needs can be analyzed as we design your irrigation watering system. Whether the plants you are growing need a lot or little water, or if a drip system would be more effective, we will ensure your system suits your needs.

Irrigation Systems Features

There are many ways J.W. Lawncare Inc can allow your new sprinkler system to be the best it can be.

  • • Uniquely designed for your landscape, taking soil conditions and water sources into consideration. Your needs are unique, so your watering system should be as well.
  • • Thorough calibration. There are many small, wasteful aspects that add up to a lot. Simple calibration can keep water from spraying on the sidewalk or driveway, evenly water your plants to avoid runoff, and create water spray that discourages evaporation through larger droplets.
  • • Watering scheduling. In the earlier and later hours, the sun causes less water to evaporate and lower winds do not blow as much water away. Additionally, changes can be made seasonally to account for rainfall, temperature, humidity, and weather.
  • • Moisture sensors. There is no reason to water your plants if it is raining. Sensors can be set up to shut the schedule off if it is adequately humid or raining.
  • • Drip irrigation. As an alternative to sprinklers involving continuous, but gradual watering, the growth of weeds is discouraged and less water is used. Drip systems can be just as effective or even more effective than sprinklers.

Three Top Tips to Save Water on Your Lawn

What many people don’t realize is that saving water in the garden is just as, if not more, important than in your home. We all know that watering your home’s lawn is an important part of keeping it looking fresh and vibrant but what is also important to remember is that saving water in your home’s exterior is essential for two reasons. First, doing so saves you money if you’re on a water meter. Secondly, at peak demand 70% of water supply can be used in gardens which forces suppliers to use groundwater and take it from streams, which can lead to environmental damage and enhanced water prices. With all this in mind, here are three top tips to save water on your lawn:

  1. Look After Your Soil: While it may sound pretty obvious, you would be surprised at the number of Newberry residents who fail to look after their soil properly yet are shocked when it dries up and is less conducive to growth. In brief, adding organic matter to the soil improves its structure, which in turn helps it retain its moisture. Similarly, by mulching flowerbeds, and the area around the base of shrubs and trees in spring, it is possible to prevent moisture from evaporating from your lawn during dry spells. Finally, by adding water-retentive granules or gel to compost or by using compost with them already mixed in, hanging baskets and containers can enhance the lushness of your soil without wasting any water unnecessarily.
  2. Water at the Right Time: At J.W. Lawncare Inc, we advise all our residential clients to make sure that they water their plants at the right time. The unfortunate reality is that many of us over-water our gardens. This is not only wasteful, it also means that we end up doing a whole lot more work than is necessary. A quick-tip for checking if you need to water or not can be detected by digging about a spade-deep down and seeing if the soil is damp. If it’s damp, then leave it alone—if it’s dry, then add some water. One important point to note is that clay soil can feel damp whether it’s irrigated or not. Similarly, sandy soil can feel dry even when it has water in it!
  3. Use the Right Amount of Water: Determining the right amount of water to use is very much dependent on the soil-type you are working with. Light and sandy soils need watering more often than heavy soils, while clay-based soils can be watered less frequently but need more water. Having a clear understanding of the water requirements of your soil-type is vitally important and is something that we at J.W. Lawncare Inc take extremely seriously.
