Irrigation Installation

In order for an irrigation system have optimal success, there needs to be a design. An evaluation of your site will first be conducted to determine:

  • Water source and location
  • Water quantity and type
  • Water pressure
  • Flow Rates
  • Property measurements and elevations
  • Soil type and texture
  • Various plant materials
  • Plant size and location
  • Root depth
  • Microclimates

Once the design has been created based on the above factors and then approved, your irrigation system is ready to be installed. Our irrigation technicians have the expertise needed to competently complete your irrigation project according to the specifications of the design as well as give you the benefit of a professional irrigation installation. Getting your irrigation installed correctly the first time is crucial to its ultimate performance and longevity.

Benefits of a professional irrigation installation:

  • Uniquely designed for your needs: designed for uniform coverage and proper hydration.
  • Ease of maintenance: worry-free watering.
  • Cost savings: conservation of water saves money on water bills.
  • Increased property value: significantly enhancing the curb appeal makes professional installation a cost effective investment and attracts new customers.
  • Assurance of the health and beauty of all your landscape elements.

Maintenance and Repair

Winterization:

    Next to proper installation, proper winterization of your irrigation system is the other major factor affecting its longevity. Since water expands as it freezes, the various components of your irrigation system, such as the sprinkler heads and piping, may be damaged by the expansion of any water that may be left in your system. The fittings and valves may also need to be repaired or replaced if the winterization has not been done correctly.

    At Custom Lawn Contractors , our technicians begin winterizing irrigation systems in October when typically irrigation is concluded for the season and finishing by the end of December before the temperature falls consistently below freezing. By using a large air compressor to blow out any excess water, we can guarantee that your system will be safe from any damage caused by the freezing and expansion of residual water.

Spring Start Up

    We usually begin the spring start ups of our irrigation systems in April and continue into June depending on the current spring weather pattern. This spring activation includes turning on the water, checking the heads to make sure they're operating correctly, and checking for leaks or other problems. We also program the controller to the anticipated environmental conditions as well as making any needed adjustments to the sprinkler heads for a uniform spray pattern to ensure a healthy lawn and plants.

Ongoing Monitoring and Maintenance

Our irrigation team will continue to monitor your irrigation system throughout the year and provide any maintenance that may be required. This includes:

  • Ensuring water conservation through system optimization and making adjustments as needed.
  • Troubleshooting controllers' performance and replacing as needed.
  • Replacing nozzles, valves, and heads as necessary to increase water flow efficiency.
  • Inspecting wiring and electrical components for possible issues.
