One of the earliest known instances of the use of irrigation systems was in 6000 B.C. when Ancient Egyptians diverted flood waters from the Nile river to their fields in order to retain them there for the right amount of time before draining them back into the Nile. Fortunately for us, there are many simpler ways to irrigate your lawn now. Some options, however, are definitely better than others. If you are dragging a hose or a portable sprinkler around your property, especially a commercial property, know that there are even easier and more effective ways to get the job done.
There are definitely aesthetic benefits of having a properly watered property. When you arrive at an apartment complex, mall, or other commercial property and the greenery on the grounds isn’t actually green, it immediately sends the wrong message. It may be similar to the message you would get if you arrived at your doctors office and she was tattooed from head to toe, had more piercings than Swiss cheese and insisted on listening to death metal during your examination. Green grass and shrubbery on your commercial grounds not only looks good, it is also healthy for the air and soil. Greenery oxygenates the air and naturally filters water. A thriving, green setting can actually lower the ambient temperature on hot days in the micro-climate around your grounds.

In some climates, sprinklers are not run after dark if a wet lawn at night plus the climate will encourage mold and disease in your lawn. All of these considerations can be managed automatically and conveniently using automatic sprinklers.
