Ever feel like maintaining your lawn is really just an exercise in throwing money away?
You’re not wrong.
Each minute you spend watering your lawn and every dollar you spend on your water bill is time and money you could have spent somewhere else.
Read on to learn how watering is wasting your time and money….and what you can do about it.
- Looking for some backbreaking work? Try installing an irrigation system.
Sure, flipping a switch to turn on your sprinklers sounds easy, but what happens if you don’t have a sprinkler system to begin with? You better hope you have some hard labor and electrical skills, because you’ll spend hours digging (we’re talking 2 foot deep holes crisscrossing your entire yard), piping (try not to inhale the noxious pipe glue fumes), and wiring (be sure to not cross the wires!) to get a system going.

If you aren’t handy, you can always call in professionals. Be prepared to spend time getting bids to make sure you get the best deal, look forward to a team of people digging up your lawn, and plan on spending up to a thousand dollars per zone. Ouch.

- Got oodles of time to spare? Hand watering will help you fill the hours.
If you’re not interested in digging up your lawn (and hoping it will grow back again after you put it all back), you can always water by hand. Grab yourself a sprayer attachment and be prepared to stand in your yard, blissfully spraying for HOURS. Most lawns need 20-30 minutes of water per zone. And if you’re spraying each zone yourself…let’s just hope you have some interesting podcasts to listen to.

You could always buy a sprinkler, but remember, you’ll still have to move it around from zone to zone in your lawn. We suggest buying a timer, otherwise you could get caught up doing something else and realize that you just watered one patch of grass for 2.5 hours.

- Ready for a good cry? Check out your water bill.
With the rising numbers of people moving to Colorado (our population has grown by more than 10% in the last decade!), the water management systems are under a huge strain to maintain and expand. Denver’s water system alone admits that they need to increase costs by 5% this year and plan on steady increases over time. Add to that our hot, dry summers and endlessly thirsty lawns, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for a bill that will get bigger and bigger every summer….forever.

- Think you were done working with your sprinkler system? Think again.
Here’s the thing about sprinkler systems: they’re always breaking. Sprinkler heads get chewed up by lawn mowers. Pipes get infiltrated by tree roots. Valve systems fail. Pipes freeze and burst. It. Just. Doesn’t. End. So go ahead and put on your work jeans, because every summer you’ll be digging up sprinkler heads and leaving muddy footprints as you walk down the hardware store aisles struggling to find the right replacement. And every fall, make sure you’re re-watching youtube videos to remember how to winterize your system, or else every winter you’ll be digging up frozen ground to replace burst pipes. Good times.

- Think you’re eco-conscious? Then why are you watering the street?
Drought conditions have taken their toll on Colorado this year, and it’s likely that we’re going to see more of the same. With that comes stricter rules about watering and the pressure to conserve. Even if you’re willing to make the sacrifice to water your lawn less (and endure a dead, yellow lawn all summer), sprinkler systems are inherently wasteful. There’s no way that you can water your lawn without also watering the sidewalk, the street, and anyone else that happens to be walking by. And if you water by hand, you’ll actually use 25% MORE water than a sprinkler system.
