Houston summers are nothing short of crazy. One week, you could be in a massive heat phase that hasn’t allowed a single drop of rain for weeks, and then all of the sudden a tropical storm can hit and our city is saturated in rain. While 3D Pools and Landscape loves the greater Houston area, we know that Houston can be difficult, to say the least when it comes to our weather. Of course, the weather affects many parts of our homes and properties such as our pools, fences, pests, and more however our weather can greatly affect our landscaping. Without water, the beautiful flowers, shrubs, and bushes that you planted will quickly die in the Houston heat. And when that tropical rain does come through, too much rain without proper drainages creates mini-ponds in your yard that then kills the grass. And becomes a breeding spot for mosquitos. These factors and more are the reason why 3D Pools and Landscape offer irrigation and drainage services to all of our clients in the Katy, Fulshear, and greater Houston area.
In this blog, we want to briefly go over the benefits of these services. So that you can make a wise decision on how irrigation and drainage help from 3D Pools and Landscape could benefit you and your family.
Irrigation systems are vital components of a healthy yard and especially a healthy landscape design. Houston is notorious for its droughts and the last thing you want to have is your landscape to die and the money you invested into the design to have gone to waste. However, some may be concerned about an irrigation system. Will it raise my water bill? Will it actually be better than going out and watering the plants myself? These questions are valid, and the answers are somewhat surprising. If you are consistently watering your plants via your hose and hand, having an irrigation system is likely to reduce your water bill. This is because you likely wastewater when watering your plants and an irrigation system is timed, sprays the perfect amount of water, and avoids wasting any water. Another reason why an irrigation system is beneficial is the time you save on having to go out and water your landscaping. We are all busy with work, taking care of kids, errands, and trying unsuccessfully to avoid Houston traffic. Why not save yourself some time by allowing your irrigation system to do the work for you. Maybe those extra 15-30 minutes saved will help you avoid the traffic of the Houston area. Another benefit that saves you time and saves your landscaping is that an irrigation system actually helps prevent weeds, plant disease, and fungi from growing. No one has the time to sit and pull weeds and treat fungi or plant disease. So why not allow an irrigation system to help combat that?
On the flip side, an irrigation system is not complete without proper drainage systems. Drainage systems help prevent the ponds of water that can form on your property and kill your plants. Pools of water can easily damage your plants and your soil making it harder to keep your plants alive. We also suggest drainage systems to avoid mosquitos from breeding and taking over your wonderful landscaping. No one likes having a backyard party that is infested with mosquitos Proper drainage systems help keep your foundation good, as well as too much water around the foundation, can create major problems. Investing in a drainage system can avoid the massive cost of repairing a foundation. 3D Pools and Landscape will work hard to make sure that water runs away from your house and drains properly into storm drains so that your home and landscaping are safe.
