LOVE my irrigation system!!

I didn't want it, thought it was unnecessary, but both my husband and son insisted I needed it, so...I gave in.

Got to say my yard has never looked better, some of the roses bloomed all summer, and the growth of everything has been phenonemal! We are water restricted to twice a week, AND my water bill has been not very much higher than what I normally pay this time of year.

Until we just can't water anymore, I plan to enjoy!

We had a sprinkler system put in 18 months ago and I love it! We have 11 zones so controlling the watering schedule is really easy, although I know that more water is wasted using the sprinklers than soakers, drip, or hand watering. However, with almost an acre to water, this has been wonderful for me.

Same here, Sheryll irrigation systen is old, but still does it's job, and I love the way it makes things look with much less work.

I just planted this new bed last Fall, and it has grown quite a bit just this summer; so much better than if I had watered with sprinklers for the last 40 years!

RE: LOVE my irrigation system!!

Sheryll, how, your back yard looks so different. Good job !!!

RE: LOVE my irrigation system!!

I love your yard! Would love to see more photos of it. I'm glad the sprinkler system is working out well for you. We have one that came with the house, but most of the emmiters put out such a fine spray that about half of the water evaporates before it hits the ground so we don't use it except when we go on vacation.
