Irrigation SystemsIrrigation systems are a great addition to any landscape, but they can easily cause problems and hassle when not used to their maximum potential.  If you are going to have an irrigation system, you may as well have timers for it.

The first reason: timers save water.  When you have your irrigation systems set up on timers, you are likely going to save water.  Even though you may have the best intentions and believe that you really can keep them running for a set amount of time and remember to turn them off, we are all human and things come up and interfere.  Even an unnecessary minute or two extra of watering will waste a significant amount of water over time.  Timers will also save your plants.  Plants can be very sensitive to the amounts of water they receive and can easily be drowned if watered for too long.  Timers can be set to provide the optimum amount of water to your plants.

When plants receive the proper amount of water on a regular basis, they are less likely to need pesticides and fertilizers, which reduces your yardwork and yard maintenance expenses.  It is also common for municipalities to have water restrictions during certain times of the year, and the use of timers can help you adhere to such restrictions.
