There are many benefits of having an automatic sprinkler system for your lawn. Keeping your plants watered regularly, and in a concentrated area, helps to conserve water and to keep your yard looking beautiful throughout the summer. However, there is one member of your family who may have some very strong opinions about your sprinkler system; after all, it is his or her yard, too. Here are the top four reasons your five-year-old needs an automatic sprinkler system.
She got a new swimsuit.
If you mention the words "sprinkler system" to a young child, they immediately have visions of running through the water, squealing with delight. The prospect of water shooting up from the ground is a great motivation for outdoor play. As a parent, this is a great benefit to you because it allows you to establish a schedule for sprinkler use. It is a lot easier to keep your yard from being flooded by an excited kindergartner if the sprinkler system is on a timer.
He likes to help his daddy cut the grass.
Five-year-old children love to imitate their parents. This is a stage of dressing up like mom or dad, and developing interest in your hobbies, but they also begin to take pride in the things that their parents value. A well-watered lawn is sure to make your grass grow, green and beautiful, giving the whole family a sense of pride.
It is fun to pick flowers.
Your child may love the idea of planting a garden, and watching the flowers grow, but how often does he or she forget to water it? An automatic sprinkler system helps to take some of the maintenance out of those spur of the moment flower gardens. Keeping your plants watered is a great way to make sure that those beautiful bouquets keep coming all summer long.
She is not a fan of shoes.
Running across the lawn barefoot is a great way to relax on a hot summer day, but dead grass and thorny weeds can make this seem like torture to sensitive little feet. Keeping your lawn watered is a great way to make sure that your little one avoids getting thorns in her feet. The grass will stay healthy, soft, and flexible, perfect for frolicking.
As a parent, you often have to decide if what your child wants is something that he or she truly needs. However, an automatic sprinkler system is one investment that both you and your child can benefit from, all summer long. Contact a company like Irrigation Tech to get started.
