No, it is not necessary.
It is a great investment and very efficient. Think of a sprinkler system as substituting Mother Nature during dry conditions. During this time, it can free you from hours of watering as well as ensure proper moisture to turf and plants. To be effective though, it would have to be properly installed and maintained. Installing an underground automatic sprinkler system isn't a one and done deal. They require seasonal servicing and periodic water-schedule changes as conditions arise, but it’s still a lot easier then dragging out the hose!

Mulch helps with weed control, retaining moisture, preventing soil erosion. Is also polishes up your property providing a better curb appeal.
Mulch on annuals or perennials should be limited to one to two inches. One key difference from ornamentals, is that annuals and perennials like loose soil. So too much of mulch is not good.
