One of the biggest problems that many individuals find is that they do not know how much to water their yard, including mulch, flowers, and plants. You do not want to underwater, as the dryness will kill your plants. On the other side of the spectrum, you would not want to overwater, as that will also kill your plants. Finding the right balance is very important and can have a genuine effect on how your yard looks over the course of the year or season.
Sprinkler systems can be great for commercial areas, and for larger residential areas. This is because they can reach extremely large areas. Similarly, there is a huge diversity in systems, as there are automatic and manual systems, which can both make your life easier in different ways. Automatic can be easier for people who are very busy, while manual ensures that your yard is never over or underwatered.

You will want to turn it on or set it too early in the morning so that it reduces the amount of evaporation that occurs. Similarly, to avoid water usage, you can set your sprinklers to shut off when there are a lot of rain showers going on.
