Nebraska’s Irrigation Experts on Irrigation Mistakes to Avoid, Chalco, Nebraska

No matter what size your lawn or garden is, keeping your yard properly irrigated isn’t always an easy task. Managing the water your soil receives is important because it helps keep your soil rich and moist, and allows you to get the most out of your monthly water bill. The residential irrigation experts at USA Hoich Irrigation in Chalco, NE, have been helping homeowners keep their lawns healthy since 1984. Here are their tips on irrigation mistakes to avoid:

  • Not Watering Separately: If you’ve got plants, shrubs, and other landscape cover in addition to grass, it’s important to water these separately, especially if you're using a sprinkler system. Since plants and shrubs have a much larger root system, they retain much more water than grass. If you’ve got the sprinkler watering your entire lawn, you’re wasting water, and possibly even overwatering your garden.
  • Overwatering: If the soil is too saturated with water, it can be quite harmful to certain plants. For your irrigation system to have the best effect, your lawn needs to absorb all that water and then dry out enough for oxygen to get to the roots. You should also avoid watering during rainy weather: Not only does it oversaturate the soil, it’s also a waste of water, which costs you money.

  • Not Using the Correct Nozzle: Using the same spray nozzle to water every inch of your lawn can actually do more harm than good. Just as plants are different, so too is the amount of water they each require. Using the correct spray nozzle and watering from the proper distance  will ensure that your lawn stays lush and healthy.
