Beautifying Your Yard

Don't be scared of the big names. The same
technology Michigan Automatic Sprinkler
uses at Beaumont Hospital can be used in
your yard.
Let their team provide an assessment
of your lawn during their visit. They will
evaluate your lawn, gardens, flower beds
and how much water is needed. They can
then design a system with rain and soil
sensors, smart controllers and built-in
weather stations that ensures every drop
of water is used efficiently — no more
overwatering, which means saving money,
Installation is quick and easy with the
company's trenchless technology. "A day or
two later, you can't even tell we were there,"
Blazofsky said.
Michigan Automatic Sprinkler can also
maintain the system. It currently maintains
more than 5,000 systems in Metro Detroit.
Irrigation isn't the only thing they do.
Michigan Automatic Sprinkler is also an
expert in landscape lighting design and
installation. They will be happy to discuss
how you can illuminate the beautiful
features of your yard, from navigating
walkways and up-lighting to highlighting
trees and plantings.
"Lighting systems can be programmed
into the homeowner's iPad to create zone
lighting — allowing the homeowner to set
the mood for different lighting schemes
for different nights. From security, to an
outdoor party, to a quiet night on the deck

... any mood can be set with a simple
and effective design," Blazofsky said.
"And everything is LED; which can last
40,000-50,000 hours."
His company's goal? "We want our
customers' yards to be the envy of
the neighborhood," he said. "We pay
attention to the small details and take
great pride in each and every system
we install."
