New house, no irrigation system -- advice?

7 years ago

Hi everyone,

My husband and I are building a house, and we are probably not going to have a sprinkler system installed because of cost and maintenance. We live in the midwest, the house will be done in June or July, and we will have sod in the front and seed in the back. We've been told we'll need to water a lot at first, but how much is a lot? Are there other types of sprinklers we can buy that will make the job easier (for e.g., I've seen some at Home Depot that have timers)? Any advice is appreciated!
