Poor Irrigation Is More Than Just Irritating

Unless you are into construction or landscape design, you likely have given very little thought to the way that water flows around the yard. Water seems like a very harmless substance, but when it is not disposed of properly, or there aren’t the proper systems in place for good irrigation, it can lead to a host of serious problems.

Not only creating annoying pockets of standing water that are nothing but a mosquito breeding grounds and a great place for the kids to get all muddy, poor irrigation can lead to erosion of the foundation of your home, flooding of your basement, or the degradation of topsoil that makes it difficult for landscaping to grow.

Any time that you make changes, either to the size of your house or structures on your property, it is imperative that you consider how it is going to affect the water pathways around your yard and property.

Not only can it create headaches for you, but it can also affect your neighbor’s property, which ultimately can become your expense to fix. When planning your home, landscaping, or structural changes, it is important to have an irrigation specialist inspect the land grade to ensure that water will flow, disperse and run properly to avoid any potential problems.

Once the foundation of your home has been compromised, it could spell huge dollars in your budget, which is the last thing that any homeowner wants. When we speak regarding irrigation, we normally consider things such as making sure we have a green lawn, or our hedges and healthy and trimmed, but having the proper irrigation for your home dwelling is about so much more.
