Green Warriors has installed a number of sprinkler irrigation systems in Thornhill, all of which can be programmed to follow a schedule that is set to comply with the water restriction rules in place. With your irrigation system taking care of the work for you, you are free to enjoy the summer without having to worry about fines or dry grass.
Your automatic sprinkler irrigation system will have many benefits. First of all, it is environmentally friendly, in that the irrigation system will water the grass adequately and evenly to prevent wasted water from over-watering. The sprinkler system even helps to manage weeds, because when the grass is consistently watered to grow healthy and lush, there is little space on the lawn for a weed to establish itself. The even watering prevents standing water, which prevents a breeding ground for fungi and plant disease from forming. A drip irrigation system directly sends water to the root ball of the plants in your garden bed with virtually no loss of water to evaporation. These environmentally friendly benefits from having a sprinkler irrigation system installed are joined by the economical benefits of having one. Your sprinkler system will save you money on the monthly water bill in the long run, and a properly maintained sprinkler irrigation system will serve for up to a decade or even longer.
The amount of time that a sprinkler irrigation system saves you cannot be understated. Enjoy hours back spent with your family enjoying the yard, instead of maintaining it. The bonus peace of mind of being able to travel freely and come home to a green lawn, instead of one covered in patches of dried grass, is another selling point. Your sprinkler system can be programmed to follow water use restrictions, and will do its job watering the lawn while you are away—no need to plan your schedule around keeping your grass healthy in the summer. An irrigation system that is installed with a Wifi controller will let you manage the settings even when you are not home. No more having to make arrangements with friends, family, or neighbours to help you water the lawn when your sprinkler system does it for you.
An irrigation system also benefits the value of your property when you get one professionally installed—the curb appeal of beautifully cared for green grass increases the value of your home, concluding that a sprinkler irrigation system is a worthwhile investment.

Thornhill is a suburban district that is split between Markham and Vaughan with Yonge Street as the dividing line, along the northern border or Toronto. Thornhill is a relaxed, peaceful neighbourhood, ideal for families that continues to grow and expand, and the district is child-friendly.

Thornhill has in its neighbourhood the Thornhill Heritage Conservation District by Yonge Street, that features a beautiful collection of mid-19th century houses. The houses are in the architectural style that were popular in the day such as: Queen Anne, Georgian, Victorian Gothic, Colonial, Edwardian style.
