The Top Choice for Lawn Sprinklers and Outdoor Lighting Installation in Fairfax County!
The only component of your most valuable investment that doesn’t depreciate is on the outside of your home, specifically the lawn and landscape. But how do you protect it? You need answers after investing in a wrap-around landscape installation featuring flowering trees, shrubs, ground covers and other ornamentals. Plant specimens may be low maintenance, but how do you keep them healthy and thriving? Simple, a automatic lawn sprinkler system. A lawn sprinkler system is the only way to consistently water your plants.
Watering may be the simple answer, but it’s actually a complicated process. Consider drought, high heat indexes, blistering humidity and the week-long highs of 90-plus degrees that beat down with ultraviolet rays to tax your lawn and landscape. A lawn sprinkler system will allow you to easily adjust watering windows to correspond with your plant and turf's needs.
Now consider how busy your life is, you work hard but also play hard. When you aren't traveling for work or working late hours in the office, you might find yourself on the golf course, at your child's sporting event or even slipping away for a three day weekend. Watering your plants can quickly become an afterthought but the water is critical to the health of your turf and plants. An automatic lawn sprinkler system eliminates these hassles and stresses.
Investing in an automatic lawn sprinkler system is the best way to protect your outside investment.

Whether it’s pop-up spray heads rotor heads or drip irrigation, Affordable’s lawn sprinkler system can employ “water zoning”, providing some plants (Hydrangea, Azalea, Rhododendron, Begonia, Impatiens) with more water while providing less to more drought-tolerant specimens (Juniper, Yucca, Sand Cherry, Crape Myrtle, False Cypress, Miscanthus Grass). Plants have varying water needs according to their genus and where they’re planted (sun vs. shade) in the landscape.
Our owners will personally meet with you onsite to review your lawn sprinkler system to determine whether your system should have Rainbird vs Hunter products.
