What are the benefits of an automatic sprinkler system?

Watering your lawn properly is one of the most demanding chores a homeowner has. During the warmer dryer months of a Long Island summer your lawn can burn up in a couple of days without the proper irrigation. While an automatic sprinkler system may seem costly at first, the benefits of never needing to drag out the hose and keep up with the water demands of your lawn far outweigh the expense. If you don't have an automatic sprinkler system installed by Waterways Irrigation, be prepared to do just that.

How much water does my lawn require?

Creating a beautiful lawn that has green lush grass, is a matter of one important factor - a regularly scheduled watering! Most residential grasses require between 1 1/2 and 2 inches of water per week. Long Island yards typically have sandy soils and have a higher permeability rate that can accept water at a faster rate, thus requiring a regular automatic watering cycle.

What time of day should I water my lawn?

Watering your grass in the early evening or early morning hours, with a deep soaking will make the roots anchor themselves deep in the soil, providing a strong rooted lawn. Too frequent watering during the day at shorter intervals will encourage shallow root growth, making a weak lawn that is easily vulnerable to damage.

With an automatic irrigation system installed properly by Waterways Irrigation, you can turn your grass greener than ever, maintaining the lush green color for a complete season with little effort on your part.

I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denounce pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. One rejects dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it pleasure, but because those who don't know how pursue pleasure rationally that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man. Top
