Doesn't an automatic sprinkler system use more water than I'm currently using for watering?

With a custom-designed P & K Irrigation sprinkler system, each area of your landscape will be fitted with the proper equipment to ensure complete coverage without wasting water.

The end result - reduced water bills and a definite savings of your time. No more worries about runoff from over-watering, wasting water if you forget to turn off the hose, or if you don't get the sprinkler placed just right and you water your house, or your neighbor's house.
