Does It Make Financial Sense To Invest In Underground Sprinklers?

The biggest attraction to any home is the curbside appeal, which starts and ends with the foliage that accents it and the green space surrounding it. The problem with landscaping is that it is rarely, if ever, maintenance free. In the heat of the summer, it can be difficult to keep your lawn and shrubbery looking green and healthy, but not all of us have the time or the energy that it takes to grab the garden hose.

Underground sprinkler systems are an excellent addition to any home landscape. Working independently, you never have to worry about the timing or the amount of water needed. They do all the work for you and ensure that you aren’t ripping out dead, dried up hedges, or annuals that didn’t even make it to the end of the annum.

There is a huge cost difference between installing your own underground system and having it professionally done. On the average, it costs approximately $1.50 to $2.50 per square foot to have it installed including materials. If you choose to do it on your own, the cost can be nearly half that much.

The problem is that installation is a very tricky process, and likely the cost to rent all the materials you will need to do it yourself, will not make sense in the long run. Sometimes homeowners make the mistake of doing things themselves only to find that they paid more in cost and effort than had they had it done by a professional.

If you live in a region where summers are hot and dry, investing in an underground sprinkler system is a no brainer. Even if you live in a region where there are very short seasons of dry weather, if you have a lot of vegetation or green space, installing a sprinkler system will prevent the continual replacement of things that you forgot to water. It also will ensure that your home looks as beautiful as you want it to.

Replacing dead foliage, continually buying new grass seed, or even dealing with the continual watering of your lawn and garden, which makes your home beautiful, isn’t worth biting the bullet and making your landscaping maintenance free for the long-term.
