When Is the Best Time of Year to Have an Irrigation System Installed?

Last updated 6 years ago

Irrigation systems are a great way to keep your lawn lush and green all year round. If you’re considering installing an irrigation system at your home, then think about timing the installation process to ensure that you get the most out of your new irrigation system without damaging your lawn. 

The truth is that irrigation and sprinkler systems can be installed virtually any time of year that the ground is easily accessible. However, certain factors can make the job less stressful on your lawn. Choosing a time of year that allows your lawn to fully recover from the installation process is the best approach. 

  • Choose the Right Season

Installing your new irrigation system in the middle of a frigid Chicago winter means you’ll be left with a muddy, dirty lawn for the entire season. Installing your irrigation in the middle of summer may also be a bad idea: The heat makes your lawn more sensitive, and it may not recover as well. Installing your new irrigation system in the spring or fall is ideal. These times of year are typically less stressful on your lawn and will make recovery much quicker. 

  • Consider Other Factors

Other factors may also affect your decision to hire a plumber to install your new irrigation system. For example, if you’re planning on major landscaping renovations, sod installation, grass seeding, or drainage work, installing your irrigation system ahead of time will save you money and shorten the amount of time it takes for your landscaping and irrigation project to be complete.
