If you don’t have an irrigation system set up for your lawn, garden, and landscaping, you’re missing out. There are so many benefits to having automatic lawn watering. Read on for just three of them you could take advantage of when you install a lawn irrigation system.

Benefit #1: Save Time

Are you tired of hauling hoses and sprinklers around? Are you sick of trying to remember which part of the lawn has had water and which part hasn’t? An irrigation system can change your life by saving you enormous time. With easy-to-use programming, you can set your watering schedule and forget it. The system will run automatically with no more hose dragging on your part.

Benefit #2: Use Less Water

How often have you moved the sprinkler only to forget about it later, leaving it on far longer than intended? Sometimes even for hours? An irrigation system solves this problem by running for a preset period of time. It will also help you use less water because the automatic settings are far more efficient than manual watering could ever be. A programmed watering schedule means more consistent irrigation and more efficient water use.

Benefit #3: Healthier Lawn

Watering your lawn manually can mean inconsistent moisture leading to an unhealthy lawn. With some spots getting too much water and others not enough, your lawn could be suffering. A lawn irrigation system means your lawn gets the water it needs, where it needs it, and when it needs it, whether you’re home or not.

Are you sick of dragging hoses and setting up sprinklers all summer? Save time, use less water, and have a more beautiful lawn by installing an irrigation system. Contact the experts at W.P. Law, Inc. to find out more.

3 Ways A Backyard Water Feature Can Boost Your Health

Are you drawn to water gardens? Have you been tossing around the idea of building a water feature in your yard or on your patio? If you’ve been on the fence, it might be time to build that backyard waterfall. If the beauty of it isn’t a good enough reason, consider these three ways a backyard water feature can boost your health.

#1: Reduce Stress

Stress can take a toll on our mental health and physical well-being. A water feature creates a tranquil space to relax and unwind when the days get hectic, and you feel your blood pressure going up. Like meditation, the sound of water has been shown to have a natural calming effect on your emotional and psychological state.

#2: Connect with Nature

Spending time outside and connecting with nature has proven health benefits. Increased energy, reduced blood pressure, and lowered cortisol and adrenaline, two stress-related hormones, are some of the improvements you can see when your water feature inspires you to spend more time outdoors.

#3: Less Noise Pollution

Water features act as sound barriers, reducing the noise pollution. We don’t often think of noise as affecting our health, but constant unwanted noise can increase stress, reduce concentration, impact sleep, and contribute to mental health issues such as depression. A water garden or backyard waterfall can block out some of the noise from the city.

Do You Have Drainage Problems in Your Yard? Here Are Some Solutions

Most homes with backyards eventually have some type of drainage problem. If your yard has excess water issues, you don’t have to live with puddles and mess. Here are some solutions to help fix drainage problems in your yard.

French Drains

One common solution to yard drainage is the installation of French drains. If you have groundwater that comes up in your grass or garden or near your home’s foundation, a French drain helps divert that excess water away from your home and beloved flower beds. French Drains consist of gravel-filled shallow trenches and pipes that the water travels through to move it to another area.

Surface Drains

Unlike French drains that pull groundwater away from where you don’t want it, surface drains help remove water sitting on the surface of your yard or landscaping. Some common areas for water to build up include the end of a driveway, next to your house, and near your patio. Surface drains move lots of water away quickly, like what you see after a rainstorm.

Dry Creek Bed

Depending on the slope of your property, a dry creek bed might be just the thing to help divert water and avoid a soggy spot in your yard or garden. A dry creek bed is nicer than it sounds, often made up of decorative rock and features to make them part of the overall landscaping. The drain starts with a trench lined with fabric and filled with gravel, then it is covered with rocks that enhance its aesthetic appeal.

If you’ve got standing water, soggy spots, or runoff impacting your yard and landscaping, don’t ignore it. Contact the drainage experts at W.P. Law, Inc. for drainage solutions you can count on.
