Spring rains bring a lot of green to the landscape and everywhere you look yards and fields are lush. However, when summer arrives with less rain and intense heat many yards begin to wither and we see a lot of brown grass. At this time of year, when families want to spend time outside having barbecues or playing outdoor games, having a soft, green manicured lawn is very desirable. What makes the difference between the lush green yard and the dry crunchy brown yard next door? Probably an irrigation system.
