Yes. For example, if you have sandy soil, you will need to water more often. However, if you water too much at once, you'll waste water. Because of the porous nature of the soil, water will run right past the root system before it can be taken in by your lawn. In contrast, a soil rich in clay should be watered less frequently since it has a high water retention rate. If you water too much, you can drown your grass roots. For these and many more reasons, we take special time to examine your lawn's slope, soil type, and many more factors before coming up with the right design for your irrigation system. We'll set up the perfect system for your location and help you program the proper water treatment. We take all pertinent factors into account when designing a new system.
