Have you been considering installing an underground irrigation system? Many homeowners who do not have underground sprinkler systems are hesitant to install new systems for fear of destroying their lawn. They often conjure up mental images of grass and dirt lying strewn across a previously perfect yard, with exposed pipes and dirt lying everywhere. While installing a new underground irrigation system is no small undertaking, qualified and experienced landscaping experts have the tools and knowhow to drastically reduce the negative impact of a new irrigation system on your yard. Read on to learn about some of the tips and tricks that you and your irrigation contractors may use to prevent damage to your lawn during the installation of your new underground irrigation system.
1. Install Underground Irrigation Systems in Fall or Early Spring
Installing an underground irrigation system is best done in fall or early spring to reduce the strain placed on your lawn. It is easiest to install a new system when the weather is mild and there is significant moisture in the soil. Digging is easier in these conditions, and your grass is more likely to cope with the stress better when water is abundant and temperatures are not oppressively hot or freezing cold. Keeping your grass healthy despite the trauma and strain that it will endure is key to ensuring a smooth recovery after installing your sprinkler system.
2. Water Generously After Installation
As mentioned above, keeping your grass hydrated and healthy is crucial. To this end, you should water your yard generously for several days after sprinkler installation. This encourages your grass to heal and grow, reestablishing roots where the grass was displaced and camouflaging the areas of your yard that were disturbed.
3. Hire Experienced Professionals
One of the best things that you can do as a homeowner to ensure minimal damage to your yard during underground irrigation system installation is to hire an experienced irrigation contractor to do the job. Professionals who know what they are doing can use the tools, methods, and materials necessary to suit your lawn’s unique needs.
