Now that we are into the summer months and the weather in San Diego County is almost completely dry, homeowners in the area are likely noticing that they are having to spend much more time watering their plants and their lawns than they did even two months ago. That’s because we went through a dry winter and any moisture that was in the ground in years past is generally not there right now. That’s leading to lawns beginning to thin out and look a bit brown and it’s leading to plants wilting and struggling earlier than they normally would.
This is becoming a bit of a problem for homeowners in the area because they need to spend more time than usual working with their hoses and sprinklers. Lawns need to be watered, as do plants, but they need to be watered at the right time of day and with the right amount of moisture. If you do not water heavily enough, your lawn and plants will struggle; if you over-water, you will face many of the same headaches as you would if you didn’t water at all. Every yard is different and every area of the county is a bit different in terms of specific watering needs.
This situation may be giving you even more stress if you’re planning on going on vacation at any point during the summer. You may need to hire a service to manage this process for you while you are gone at considerable expense or you may need to simply hope that a neighbor can pitch in whenever he or she has some time. Either way, this would present a risk that could put you in a position of having to endure an unhappy return home.
Fortunately, there is another option – you can automate this entire process so that you don’t have to worry about it and you can work with an experienced San Diego landscaping professional who can help you with several different aspects of this automation. Specifically, you may want to consider having a sprinkler system installed in your yard. Taking this step and working with a professional will allow you to be worry-free with regards to your watering.
Not only will you not have to spend time with the hose and attachable sprinkler head, but you can set the automatic sprinklers to run at the best time of day for doing so. You can also situate the sprinkler heads in areas of your yard where you will achieve maximum efficiency with the water you use. With the proper input and guidance, you could actually save on water usage and avoid some of those extremely high utility bills that arrive a month after you’ve been scrambling to keep your plants alive with your hose.
