Conserve Resources with an Automated Irrigation System - Blog - Brilar - irrigation_small

You've made an investment in your commercial property’s landscape, and now you want to protect that investment. Proper watering can help to keep these areas beautiful all season long. Sticking to a schedule is crucial; however, we know maintaining this schedule can be tough. That’s where we come in, with a professionally installed irrigation system, your property can garner all the benefits of regular watering. Below are some of the other benefits you can enjoy with an irrigation system from Brilar.

No More Wasted Water

How many times have you seen sprinklers set up to cover lawns that are also watering walkways and edges of parking lots? Even an experienced technician using an adjustable sprinkler can have problems avoiding runoffs and wasted water. Since automated irrigation systems use nozzles carefully designed and calibrated at installation, the watering pattern is always precise, and waste is minimized.

In addition, you can control select sprinklers for longer or shorter watering periods. The frequent and light irrigation also helps supplement natural rainfall and creates uniform water distribution. A new piece of sod, for example, may require longer sprinkling times for several weeks. Automated systems may include rain sensors, which shut the system off if it is raining, and soil moisture sensors to prevent the system from running if the soil is already saturated. 

No More Inconvenient Watering Times

Optimal times for hydrating grass and plants are early morning or late evening, but these times may be difficult to coordinate during the regular business hours of your staff. Since you can precisely program the watering times in an automated system, the schedules of individual workers are no longer an issue. In addition, you can plan watering times that are convenient for the tenants, customers, and other users of your building.

Cost-Effective

In addition to making sure you are avoiding runoff and wasted water, you will also make sure that your watering times are never set and forgotten about, which can happen when using manually controlled sprinklers.  Not only does manual application tend to increase water cost, too much water can adversely affect your landscaping causing additional blight and possible death to plants from being over watered which will only increase your landscaping costs in the future.
