Q: Will an irrigation system use more water than I am currently using, and will it raise my water bill?

A: Typically, having an irrigation system can actually save you water, and in turn save you money on your water bill.  A professionally designed, efficient irrigation system applies the exact amount of water that is needed for your landscape and no more - your water is being used more efficiently as your lawn should never be over-watered.  However, everyone is different and has different habits so this answer can depend on your specific situation.

Q: Will having an irrigation system really save me time? 

A: Yes, an irrigation system can certainly save you time!  Some systems allow you to set your watering schedule on a timer, so you will not have to spend any more of your free time watering your lawn.  After setting up the timer, all you will have to do is sit back and allow your grass to be watered for you – this could make for an added chunk of time saved in your busy schedule!  As an added bonus, having an irrigation system installed can be way less labor intensive.

Q: How often should my lawn be watered?

A: It depends on the type of soil you have, but typically your lawn will need to be watered at least 2 to 3 times per week. This can also vary depending on the weather and how often it rains.  The experts at Paradise Landscaping can assist with setting the time on your system according to your soil and site conditions.

Q: Will the type of soil I have in my yard affect how often my lawn needs to be watered?

A: The type of soil you have in your yard can affect how often your lawn needs to be watered. For example, if your lawn contains sandy soil, it may need to be watered more than a lawn that only contains silty clay soil. If you are confused about how often your lawn should be watered, it can be best to check with your landscaping professional first, before doing anything. You don't want to over or under water your lawn. Doing so can damage your lawn and cause you to have to spend even more money having it fixed.
