Most lawns require a minimum of one inch of water per week. This can be accomplished by watering each section for one hour at a time. To ensure that your lawn is getting an inch per watering, place an empty tuna can in the lawn. Once the can is full you have reached one inch. It is best to water in this manner 2 -3 times a week if possible. Rain is the best supplier of water due to the natural occurrence of nitrogen, which is essential to the health of your lawn. It is hard to ensure that your lawn is getting enough water in some cases. Don’t be fooled by quick downpours. It may be a lot of water, but it is coming down too fast to soak in and most of rain is washed away. A hard, short storm may still need to be supplemented later in the week with a good watering. Water is lost from your lawn through a process called evapotranspiration. Evapotranspiration--usually referred to as "ET"-- is the combined effect of water used by the plant and that which is lost to evaporation. ET is expressed in inches (or mm) of water per week. Your watering schedule should be set up to replace the water lost to ET. Check with your local university extension for ET rates in your area. Many areas publish ET rates in the daily press.
Just wanted to let you know you have a really good company. I don't write that often; your office always helps out and the guys doing the work are top notch. Prompt, polite and competent. Can't say that about most of the people I have to deal with out here.
In this letter on behalf of my superior sister Matea and the whole community of the missionary sisters of saint Benedict I wish to express my deepest gratitude for the most generous discounts that we received from your installation of the new sprinkler system. No longer will we have to worry about watering the 12 acre grounds at our home. All the plants smile and we do too. Thank you.
After hearing from a friend that she was pleased with your service, I decided to give Irrigation Solutions a try. It was the single best decision I made for my plants and my lawn. I thank you.
Your crew did such an excellent job. they were so neat and careful with the plantings.
I have worked with five “irrigation specialists” before I was recommended by my neighbor to give Irrigation Solutions a call. My only complaint is that he didn’t tell me sooner. There is no staff more skilled than the Forman at your company. I am grateful that I have finally found a real Hampton Sprinkler company.
Joe is very personable and enjoyable to work with. He is a breath of fresh air in a “Fly by Night” contractor world. He answered all my questions and the work was done in a timely manner. I am very pleased and satisfied with the results.
