Kansas City experienced heavy snow and ice this past winter as well as extremely cold temperatures, and with spring finally in the air, most are welcoming the warmer weather with open arms. What some homeowners don’t know, is all of that precipitation can tend to cause topsoil to wash away. Spring showers can allow water to work its way into cracked soil and seep into areas where foundation has pulled away from the home, creating a channel for basement flooding and damage to your foundation.
Another common misunderstanding is that overexposure to water actually causes underdeveloped root systems – making it tough for your grass to survive the hot, dry summer. Once lawns start to brown by midsummer, many homeowners are frantically dragging the hose all around the yard. Not to mention, running up your water bill because you turned the sprinkler on and forgot to shut it off for a few hours.
All of this hassle can be avoided with an underground sprinkler system installation by the professionals at Heinen Landscape & Irrigation! It’s the only way to prevent overwatering your lawn and ensuring guaranteed grass all summer long that will thrive during the dry summer months in KC. The pros at Heinen will customize the irrigation system to your lawn and will even set up a dedicated sprinkler system to ensure your foundation doesn’t pull away from your home.
