Frequently Asked Questions

A: It is very important to keep lawns and landscape healthy, watered, and green. Without regular watering your plants and grass will not survive. Aquamist sprinkler systems are a great way to consistently maintain your property. An Aquamist irrigation system can:

1) SAVE TIME – no more having to remember to water, pulling the hose around the yard, or having to move the sprinkler. Your lawn gets watered even when you are away!

2) SAVE MONEY– Over watering or under watering can kill your shrubs, flowers, and grass, which can cost you money. A new sprinkler system will save you the expense of having to re-landscape because of these mistakes.

3) SAVE WATER– An Aquamist sprinkler system will provide the right amount of water to your lawn. You will also reduce watering the sidewalks, driveways, and your neighbor’s lawn.
