Residential Irrigation Benefits for You

King Water Wells would be happy to come to your home and give you a quote for a residential irrigation system. You’d be surprised how much easier life will be with one. We can upgrade an existing irrigation system, install a new one, or install an environmentally-friendly system that utilizes greywater to water your plants – more on that below. Let’s talk about irrigation and its benefits for you and your yard.

Frees Your Time

Aside from using less water to help the environment, an irrigation system will free up your time so you can spend more time with your family and friends. Rather than stand outside watering your yard for an hour or more, the irrigation system will water it for you so you don’t have to worry about it anymore. The irrigation system can be customized to ensure all plant life gets the right amount of water.

Uses Less Water

As we mentioned above, the irrigation system will use less water yet keep your plants healthy and happy. This is important if you are on a water well, as you do not want the water level in the well to get too low. If you are on a municipal water system, the irrigation system will reduce your water bill. You benefit from using less water whether you supply your own water or count on the municipality.

Reuses Greywater

We also mentioned above that you take advantage of the greywater that your dishwasher and washing machine produce and have it rerouted into the outdoor irrigation system to water your plants. Just make sure you don’t use bleach in your laundry. Reusing greywater, including bath or shower water, is a popular way to save water, even though you live in Rockford where drought conditions are rare.

Allows for Flexibility

Your residential irrigation system will also be flexible just as if you were watering by hand. If it is raining or snowing outside, you can turn the system off so it doesn’t water the yard. If it is extremely hot outside, you can add more watering times to the system so the yard doesn’t get parched.

Enhances Aesthetics

Finally, the right amount of water for each plant is going to cause them to thrive. As such, your yard will be the envy of the neighborhood. This enhances your property’s aesthetics and value.
