When you run a business, the building your business runs from is the face of your company, so presenting it with a high-quality appearance is vitally important. One of the most neglected parts of a business image when it comes to commercial property is garden and lawn maintenance. Your lawn and gardens are the image your customers or clients see first, before they even walk in your door, and the care you take with your image should represent the care you take with your customers.
Your commercial business should be an inviting place that people will feel comfortable and relaxed when visiting. One way to ensure your property is green and cared for all year round is by installing an irrigation system, so you don’t have to take timeout of your busy schedule to maintain them.
Installing With Automation
Installing an automated watering system around your commercial property will ensure your lawns and gardens are green, healthy and beautiful. Clever planning of an irrigation system for your commercial property is the most efficient way to deliver the required hydration for your plants and grass without over watering or watering unnecessary areas, like sidewalks.
What Is The Best Way To Water My Commercial Property Lawns And Gardens?
Your property’s landscape and turf will easily survive with sporadic deep watering, so it is not an issue to leave sprinkler systems on for longer times, but less frequently. This method will give your plants deep watering, which helps the roots to grow downward resulting in healthier, stronger plants. Using this method will conserve water, it will ensure your plants can be watered in the least busy times at your business (like after hours or weekends) and will benefit the plants greatly.
Completely established lawns need far less maintenance than fresh turf, so guiding the grass to be stronger will improve water conservation over time.
What Type Of Irrigation Should I Use At My Commercial Property?
Drip lines are the best type of irrigation system for planters and landscape beds and to conserve water, deliver the water directly to the plants roots with a specialized drip irrigation system. This method not only focuses the water to the root system but ensures that surrounding weeds won’t germinate by starving them of water. This means your gardens and plants will require less maintenance.
Sprinkler systems are a great way to make sure your lawn is watered when it needs it the most. Setting up an irrigation plan for your commercial business will mean setting timers to water your lawns at the most beneficial time of the day, which is early morning.
These timed sprinkler systems provide the delicate balance and consistency that you can’t get from a standard hose watering. Automated irrigation systems don’t require anyone to physically water the lawn and gardens, meaning you are saving money as a business owner, by letting your employees tend to their jobs rather than the lawn.
Best Times To Set Your Automatic Irrigation Systems
Setting your irrigation systems to come on and turn off when you need it to, is the most difficult part of the whole process. Early mornings are best for watering, and having your system turn on around dawn, and turning off at least five minutes before opening time will ensure customers aren’t affected by the watering system, and your plants will get the nutrients they need at the best time of the day.
