Denver Sprinkler Repair Experts Explain Why You Should Get a New Sprinkler System Installed Now

June 2, 2021

In the greater Denver area, the weather can improve pretty quickly. This means you need to be ready for the warmer weather and the landscaping maintenance you’ll need to tackle long before the weather warms up in earnest. One of the easiest ways to stay on top of your landscaping and get your yard ready for the warmer weather is to rely on your sprinkler system. But what happens if your old system isn’t working as well as you’d like? Do you have to wait until summer to schedule a Denver sprinkler system installation? Not necessarily. Here are a few reasons why scheduling an installation appointment as soon as possible is your best choice.

New Sprinklers Are More Efficient

Believe it or not, sprinkler systems are the most efficient and environmentally friendly way to water your lawn, no matter what size your yard is. They spray a steady stream of water across the entire surface of your lawn, hydrating the roots and soil each time they turn on. But more importantly, they do this slowly enough that the grass is able to absorb the water and put it to use.

When you’re running an older system with less precise controls or are watering by hand because your existing sprinkler system doesn’t work anymore, you’ll end up using far more water over the course of the growing season. That extra water use doesn’t just hurt your water bill. It also hurts your grass.

Overwatering can contribute to mold and mildew growth in your lawn. Once this happens, your grass won’t be able to grow well and may even develop brown patches across the surface. That means you’ll end up having to pay even more money to repair the damage and reseed or re-sod your lawn.

By making the upgrade before the growing season starts, you’ll be ready for the warm weather long before it comes. That means your lawn will perform better and grow more effectively over the warmer months.

There’s More Availability for Appointments

When homeowners wait to schedule installation appointments until the warm weather is already here, they have to deal with tons of competition for those appointments. This is because more people are starting to think about their sprinkler systems and their lawns. The more people trying to schedule appointments at any given time, the harder it will be to find a time slot that works for your schedule.

You may end up having to wait several weeks before you can get your new sprinkler system installed. That’s time that your landscaping won’t be able to thrive.

By taking the time to schedule an appointment now rather than waiting until prime landscaping season, you’ll have your pick of appointments. Even better, your installation team will be able to get the job done sooner so your landscaping will be able to grow as beautifully as possible throughout the spring and summer.

You’ll Spare Yourself Frequent Repairs

As sprinkler systems age, they will start to break down. This isn’t because you have a bad or low-quality system or even because you didn’t stay on top of routine maintenance. It’s simply because the components aren’t designed to last forever. 

Once those components start to fail, you’ll have to schedule frequent maintenance appointments if you want the system to work during the warmer months. Though minor repairs are often affordable, larger repairs will cost you both time and money.

By replacing your aging system before those minor issues cause major damage, you’ll reduce the amount of downtime your system experiences. That means better watering through the main growing season and less time spent dragging the garden hose around the yard to water your grass.

Even better, you’ll likely be able to enjoy a full season with minimal or no repairs at all. That means you won’t have to worry about disrupting your busy schedule to meet with repair technicians.

The System Will Be Ready for the Growing Season

Installing a new sprinkler system isn’t as easy as you might think. Water lines need to be installed in the ground, electronics need wiring, and the layout needs to be perfected. This takes time, but it can also disrupt your lawn’s new growth if you wait too long to start the installation.

By scheduling your new system installation earlier in the season, you’ll give your lawn more time to recover from the installation itself. This means your grass will look better than your neighbors who wait to replace their system until spring is in full swing. 

Even better, you’ll have all that extra time to focus on adding new plants to your landscape design while others are waiting for their sprinkler systems to get installed in the first place. By midsummer, your yard will look pristine and theirs will still be playing catch-up. 

New Sprinklers Add Value to Your Home

Believe it or not, installing a new sprinkler system doesn’t just benefit your landscaping. It can also add serious value to your home.

If you choose to list the property over the next few years, you’ll be able to ask a higher price for the house with the new system in place. Even better, the system can be a major selling point for prospective buyers. 

Remember, buyers want a property that’s easy to maintain and an upgraded, modern sprinkler system with new controllers and new heads dramatically reduces the amount of time and effort they have to put into maintain the landscaping. Compared to other properties without those systems in place, yours will stand out from the crowd.
