Over time, an automatic sprinkler system will pay for itself. The savings are based on eliminating overwatering and providing perfect, efficient coverage. Hand watering is no match for the efficiency of an irrigation system.
Eliminating overwatering means no waste, no runoff and no more forgotten sprinklers or having to water the driveway just to get a patch of grass. A properly watered lawn is also healthier and less vulnerable to stress, pests or weed infestations.
Not only will an automatic irrigation system save you money, it will also remove the worry of having to water your grass, allowing you to spend more time doing the things you love to do. A properly installed and maintained irrigation system can last a lifetime, providing a beautiful, worry-free landscape.
FTC takes all of these things into consideration and designs and installs a uniform system providing the correct amount of water in every area of your landscape! Water conservation is key to our business.
