Do you find yourself looking at your brown grass and wonder what you’re doing wrong?
Maybe you are irrigating appropriately but your system doesn't seem to be working right and you have some definite blind spots. Or maybe you see more water on the sidewalk after your sprinkler system runs than on the grass. Or possibly you open your monthly water bill during the summertime and have to pick your chin up off the floor after noticing the cost.
Water is an essential piece of your elegant home landscape. Your plants need water to survive, particularly during those periods of drought or low rainfall or when they are newly planted. And while irrigation can be a cost-efficient solution to your landscape’s water requirements, it’s also tricky in Kansas City. Here we can go from a drought to a flood in what seems like overnight. How can you manage an irrigation schedule in that climate while also keeping your other home to-dos managed and in order?
Digital irrigation technology can come to the rescue with ease of use, lower costs, less maintenance, and incredible water and cost savings.
You know water is important. No one hates to waste it. You cringe when you see an irrigation system spraying the sidewalk or even threatening to target a morning runner passing by. The water should be directed to the plants where it’s needed most -- not hardscapes, people, or other areas.
For a typical home, a homeowner can waste roughly 80,000 gallons of water -- or $600 to $1,200 -- annually. That’s quite a large sum to waste. And since homeowners typically use more water outside (57%) vs. inside (43%), this is where even small changes can make a big difference.
While all of this is pretty fascinating to consider, it’s also pretty boring. While you may care about water use, you probably don’t have the time to dedicate to tracking where every drop of your water goes. We’re all busy. There has to be a better way.
Traditional lawn sprinkler systems, though convenient, are not very efficient, particularly over time. As your landscape changes, that sprinkler system has to change to meet the changing demands of your outdoor areas. It also needs to be managed properly to ensure parts are working well and water is going where it needs to go. Climate conditions change over the course of a growing season as well. Sometimes the soil is moist enough or the rainfall is sufficient. Other times, supplemental water is necessary to keep your lawn and landscape happy.
Most conventional sprinkler systems force you to think about all of these variables. It can make your head spin.
Today’s smarter digital irrigation technology takes the guesswork out of irrigation. You don’t have to become a water expert.
Irrigreen digital sprinkler systems use half the water through next-generation digital technology to distribute water to the exact shape and contour of your lawn and landscape beds, actually going around hardscapes to limit both overspray and overlap.
It’s so frustrating to see a broken irritation head put a dent in your landscape irrigation, causing brown spots and other problems.
Digital sprinkler systems to the rescue with 80% fewer parts than a conventional system. For example, while a traditional irrigation system may have 30 to 40 sprinkler heads, 1,500 feet of pipe, 5 valves, and 10 wires, a digital system requires only 5 digital sprinkler heads, 250 feet of pipe, 0 valves, and 2 wires.
A digital system also takes less time to install -- 12 to 16 hours vs. 30 to 40 hours for a conventional system, fixing your water problems faster.
Add to that a wifi-based, cloud-monitoring-capable Irrigreen2 mobile app where you can manage your digital irrigation system from anywhere at any time, and you now have next-gen technology working to your advantage to save you water instantly when you’re busy doing other things.
Fewer maintenance costs + no micromanagement + less water and money wasted = more time for you to enjoy your landscape and not fret about water woes.
Irrigation system installation in Kansas City doesn’t have to be complicated. Take advantage of the next generation technology that has come to the water world with a digital sprinkler system. Your plants will get the water they need. Your bank account won’t shrink covering your water bills. And you’ll feel better knowing that you’re doing something that is better for you and the planet.
We were looking for a company that could handle our complex project so that we didn't have to deal with multiple contractors. High Prairie is not only a one-stop-shop, but their designs are also exceptional, and the project turned out even better than we imagined. We knew what was happening every step of the way and they continue to be just as responsive now that the project is done.Larry R. — Mission Hills
