Your grandpa watered his lawn with an oscillating sprinkler, and that was good enough for him, darnit. But he also walked to school uphill both ways through the driving wind and snow and never complained. Sure it made him tough, or so he claims, but there’s enough going on in the modern world that we don’t have time for those special, old-timey hills or the oscillating sprinklers. So what’s the modern answer to constantly moving a sprinkler around, and losing precious water to wind and evaporation? It’s all underground.
There are a ton of problems with the old, oscillating sprinklers, which is why you see them as much as those hills grandpa used to walk. Underground sprinklers have an answer to each of those shortcomings, giving you an even, green lawn with less effort– and with less water.
Underground Sprinklers Solving Problems
Who thinks the best solution to minimize water loss is to shoot water way up in the air before it ever comes in contact with the grass? I don’t see any hands up, and that’s because you know that shooting water up into the air means it spends a lot of time in the arid, windy air of southern Alberta. That translates to you operating an ineffectual humidifier and watering your neighbour’s lawn, and your neighbour can take care of his/her own lawn. An underground sprinklers system keeps the water low so the water doesn’t spend as much time in the air evaporating– or getting blown all the way to Coaldale.
Underground Sprinkler Timing
Like a musician knows, it’s all about timing. If you want to continue doing it grandpa’s way, well, we have some tips for you, but modern is easier. Underground sprinklers have timers that you can set and forget. That means when life gets busy and you’re concentrated on the more important things in life (kids, career, or cuisine) then your lawn keeps on getting watered at the best time, instead of never.
Underground Sprinkler Coverage
Your lawn was custom made to fit your house and your property, and no matter how much you shop around, you’ll never find a bespoke oscillating sprinkler. But underground sprinklers are exactly that – bespoke and completely customized to your lawn. That means no dry corners and no low lying swamps; just even green lawn as far as the eye can see, or at least to your property line.
