The Benefits of an Automatic Sprinkler System

Irrigation/Irrigationflower.jpg

Having a beautiful landscape doesn't mean you have to spend hour after hour working in your yard. With a professionally installed irrigation system, your lawn will be the envy of the neighborhood!

In addition to keeping your landscape attractive year-round, an automatic sprinkler system will help conserve water too. Your system will place exactly the right amount of water on specific lawn and garden areas so that water is not wasted. We will also include a rain sensor device that will automatically turn off your system when it rains.

In fact, a professionally installed automatic sprinkler system is one of the best investments that you can make for your home. Just ask anyone who has one. There is no easier or more cost-effective way to beautify your home, increase its value, and save yourself a lot of time and money.


When choosing an irrigation contractor, you should be wary of those who offer to charge you significantly less than others. Low Irrigation/rotorbeauty.jpgbidders may not be licensed or insured and may often use cost-cutting techniques that can jeopardize your lawn and shorten the life of your system.
Watch out for these commonly used, undesirable short-cuts:
  • Not including a back-flow preventer: This is often required by local codes to protect your drinking water.
  • Installing sprinklers too far apart: This makes it impossible for certain areas to receive enough water and can cause brown spots during the hot summer months.
  • Mixing sprinklers with different application rates on the same line: This causes one area to be over-watered in order to sufficiently water another.
  • Not using special watertight connectors and a protective valve box: These components are necessary to safeguard the electrical elements, guard against short circuits and prevent corrosion

The Advantages of Owning an Automatic Sprinkler System

Many people say convenience is the biggest advantage to an automatic system since they don't have to spend their time watering by hand or moving the hose around the yard. Others say extended plant life and lower water usage are the most important benefits. Still others believe a sprinkler system is one of the best investments that they can make in their home, since a home's appearance is a key factor in determining market value. And guess what -- they are all right!

 

 Commonly Asked Questions

Q. Will an automatic sprinkler system use more water than I am currently using?Irrigation/irrigationflowers.jpg

A. No. -- In fact, an automatic sprinkler system will conserve water. You will never have to worry about runoff from over-watering or about wasting water if you forget to turn off the hose. Plus, with a rain sensor your system will know when it is raining and simply turn itself off when water is not needed.

 

Q. Does having a sprinkler system really save time?

A. Yes. -- You won't have to spend another minute of your valuable leisure time watering the lawn. Your new system will do all the watering for you - even when you are away from home!

 

Q. Will an automatic sprinkler system water as well as I do when I water by hand?

A. An automatic sprinkler system will do a much better job, because a professionally designed system delivers exactly the right amount of water to specific lawn and garden areas.

 

Q. We generally get 40 or more inches of rainfall a year. Do we really need a sprinkler system?

A. If it rained at your house every three days -- the same exact amount each time -- you probably would not need a sprinkler system. But nature doesn't work that way, and the only way to ensure healthy, lush yard is to make certain that your lawn and plants receive a regularly timed and evenly measured amount of water. In the dry season when there is little or no rain, your yard can suffer damage after just a few days without water.

 

Q. Are there different sprinkler systems from which to choose?

A. Although every system should be tailored to meet one's individual needs, a typical system is comprised of a controller (which functions as the brains of the system), valves (which open and close to release and stop the flow of water to underground pipes) and sprinklers (which distribute water to specific areas).

Q. How do I know what type of sprinkler system is best for me?

A. We are an experienced irrigation contractor who is knowledgeable about factors such as water source and pressure, soil type, planting materials, and weather conditions. We will take all of this into consideration when designing a system specific to the needs of your landscape.Irrigation/Irrigationhead.jpg

 

Q. Can I save money by installing my own system?

A. No! In fact, it could cost you more money in the long run. A professional irrigation contractor will design and install the most cost-effective and energy-efficient system possible. You can be confident that we will use the best equipment for the job and effectively schedule any maintenance required to keep your landscape in top shape.
We will pay special attention to important factors such as sprinkler patterns (it is important to overlap the patterns so that the outer edges receive sufficient water for healthy growth) and back-flow prevention (which is necessary to protect your drinking water). Because we are familiar with local plumbing and electrical codes, you won't have to worry about costly pipe installation or wiring mistakes. We can do the job faster -- with less disruption to your existing landscape -- and we guarantee our work.Irrigation/IrrigationFlowerbed.jpg

 

Q. Will I have difficulty operating my sprinkler system?

A. We will help you select the best controller for your needs, and will program it with your customized watering schedule. We will also explain the system's operation to you. Then, if necessary, you will be able to easily change the watering schedule by simply following the easy instructions on the inside of the controller cabinet.

 

Q. How much will a good sprinkler system cost?

A. The price of a system depends upon many factors such as property size, type of landscaping, and special designs. But you can count on us to design a cost-effective system comprised of quality products.
