Pros and Cons: Is A Residential Irrigation System Actually Worth the Money?


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.
