A properly designed #irrigationsystem IS important! Even in residential applications, while often not complicated, designs are not often thought through as much as they should be.
For instance, one zone of #sprinklerheads to water grass and a flower bed is considered an improper irrigation design.
The water needs of the grass and those of the flowers are likely entirely different.
Each zone of irrigation should be watering landscape that requires the same amount of water for it’s best health.
Unfortunately, to cut corners (and sometimes costs), areas are combined that have these different watering needs. Not only is this not good for your landscape, it is also likely not a wise use of water. That money you might save for the cost of a separate zone for that area will likely just end up getting wasted in watering costs. Maybe even cause damage to the landscape from over/under watering.
