You would be hard-pressed to have beautiful landscaping without a well-planned and effective irrigation system. Even an area that gets a fair amount of rain can find that not all plants are happy with what they are getting. If you have an irrigation system, it doesn’t mean you won’t have issues occasionally, so it is important to stay alert for symptoms that indicate your system needs to be updated or repaired.
- Uneven results. Do you notice some areas are browning while others are soaked? This can be a sign that the zones aren’t properly timed, and some areas are getting too much water while others aren’t getting enough. It can also mean that there are pressure problems and the water just can’t get to some areas effectively. It is also possible that some areas just aren’t getting any irrigation at all.
- High water bill. It shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg to irrigate your landscaping. If your bills are on the rise, it could be that too much water is being used unnecessarily or that there is a leak somewhere in the system. A leak can also give you uneven results because it throws off the distribution.
- Some plants flourish but others don’t. This is much like what was just discussed about uneven results, except that you must also factor in that all plants have different needs. If your landscaping wasn’t planned appropriately or altered after the irrigation was installed, it may not be making some plants very happy.
