Are you getting ready to invest in an irrigation system? Ask your irrigation expert these four questions before you hand over your money.
Question #1: Are you Licensed?
You wouldn’t work with a roofing company or plumbing company that isn’t licensed, so you shouldn’t work with an irrigation pro that isn’t. Not only does a license protect you from potential issues, it helps ensure you’re working with an experienced and knowledgeable professional.
Question #2: What Water Conservation Products Do You Use?
With an emphasis on responsible water use, it’s important to know how your irrigation design ensures water conservation. It affects not just the planet but also you and your water bill.
Question #3: What is Your Experience?
Lots of people can pass themselves off as irrigation experts when in reality, they’re weekend DIYers. Make sure you know what their experience is before signing on the dotted line. They should have at least five years of installation experience in a variety of irrigation systems. Ask for references and follow up on them. You’ll be glad you did.
Question #4: What’s Your Experience with My Type of System?
A commercial expert might not be savvy in residential irrigation, and vice versa. Find out about their experience with the type of system you need. You don’t want to be a guinea pig as they experiment with a different type of installation.

A residential irrigation system might seem like a no-brainer, but before you jump in, you want to gather the information. Here’s a handy list of pros and cons to help you decide if it’s actually worth the money.
Start with the Pros
- Convenience – nothing is more convenient when watering your grass and landscaping than an irrigation system – no more dead spots or hauling hoses and sprinklers around the yard. Automation means you can set it and forget it and know your entire lawn will get the water it needs when it needs it.
- Cost Savings – you’ll use less water when you have an irrigation system set on a timer. You’ll never waste water or have higher water bills because someone forgot to turn off the hose.
- Resale value – an irrigation system boosts the resale value of your home as much as any other upgrade.
A Look at the Cons
- Initial cost – the initial cost of installation might be a deterrent for some homeowners. Irrigation systems pay for themselves over time with savings on your water bill and increased home value.
- Installation process – the installation process can seem daunting. Because an irrigation system lies underground, your yard will undergo some digging to install the piping.
While there are pros and cons to anything in life, when we’re talking about a residential irrigation system, the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks. To find out more, contact the experienced professionals at W.P. Law, Inc. today.
Are you dreaming of an outdoor kitchen or grill? You can make that dream a reality. There are some questions you should ask yourself and your installation team before you choose a design. Here are three of the most helpful things to consider while you design.
#1: How Big Should It Be?
The question of space is an important one. How much do you think you need? You want to be sure you have the counter space you need for prep and serving, and room in front of and around the counter and grill to move around.
#2: What Amenities Would Be Good Choices?
Some people just want a gigantic grill to cook on, while others want more amenities. What would you get the most benefit from? Whether it’s a refrigerator, a wine chiller, an entertainment hookup, a bar counter, or all of the above, you can have it – you just need to include it in the design.
#3: What Materials Should You Choose?
Material choices are important not only to the design but also to the durability of your outdoor kitchen. You want to ensure it will stand up to the elements and the wear and tear of regular use.
You need to make many decisions when designing an outdoor kitchen or considering an outdoor grill installation. The good news is you don’t have to do it alone. Contact the experienced team at W.P. Law, Inc..
