Another good practice for lawn sprinkler installing is a Texas licensed irrigator contractor. They put water hydraulics and recommended PSI when designing your underground watering system. Basically, it allows your lawn sprinkler to be efficient and conserve water without sacrificing proper spray for your plants and grass. Houston Landscape Pros will advise you on the best practices for water conservation. One example is the adequate design of sprinkler zones. Lawn sprinkler installations in landscape beds, grass, and trees need to have their independent stations. Lawn Sprinkler Systems can also be on a set time schedule for each planted area, based on their specific water needs.
The ultimate underground watering system design should only cover green areas. Therefore, provide only the amount of water needed for the grass or plants that require watering. In other words, allow the sprinklers to miss fences or concrete areas. The design phase should take into consideration your grass, trees, and plants located in landscape beds. Sidewalks, driveways, and other fixtures need to be taken into account when drawing up the sprinkler system design. Using correct sprinkler pop-up spray heads and nozzles will allow proper flow to the plants while minimizing wind loss. Where appropriate, there should also be an installation of a drip sprinkler system.
Houston Landscape Pros will take the necessary steps to ensure the lawn and landscape have coverage without watering unnecessary areas. Furthermore, we will have a layout drawing that shows where every component of the system is in the yard. The layout helps in the event of adding landscape beds to your front yard or back yard. Another reason will be if you are adding a pool, patio deck, or selling your house! Go ahead and fill out an irrigation quote form or speak with one of our friendly representatives!
Water Conservation No-No’s
Spraying water over sidewalks or driveways
Cover landscape beds, lawn/grass areas, and trees all with the same irrigation station
Use pop-up heads in an area less than 48 inches wide that is bordered by concrete on both sides. (as per State of Texas Law Requirements)
Install a low-quality Rain Sensor
Houston Landscape Pros only uses commercial-grade irrigation components so your system will have the most updated parts. Therefore, the underground watering system works more efficiently and lasts longer. Believe it or not, large manufacturers like Hunter or Rainbird make inferior parts found in home improvement stores. To the untrained eye, they look identical. For a lawn sprinkler installation, commercial-grade parts will make our quote about 5% higher. However, it is better to pay for a quality product upfront than pay more later in repair costs. In the long run, the savings in your water will pay for the increasing cost of using commercial parts. To learn more about lawn sprinkler repair, please read more on our page.
Proper installation is critical to make sure your plants and lawn get enough water. Many lawn sprinkler system contractors will provide much lower prices than a licensed irrigator because they cut corners during installation. Beware of unscrupulous or inexperienced installers. To avoid calculating proper water pressure needed, they may start with a larger pipe than required.
Another way unscrupulous companies cut corners is by spraying the grass and landscape beds at the same time. This practice is common where landscaping beds are on opposite corners. They cover everything with one station rather than separating the landscaping beds from lawn areas and using two stations. Remember, grass and landscape beds need different watering time schedules. For example, flowers need more water than grass. If you have one station for both, you end up flooding the lawn and not receiving enough water for your flowers. This scenario also applies to shrubs and trees.
Programming your underground irrigation system is essential. Therefore, you must schedule your lawn sprinkler to deliver the right amount of water based on the season. Having a system that allows you to program for the entire year is crucial. This technology prevents you from adjusting the schedule every time the season changes. For example, in Houston, Texas, January requires 36% less water than June. To learn more about water requirements for your lawn in Houston, go to the page titled Lawn water needs. However, if you are the type of person that would rather set and forget about it, you should consider installing a smart Wi-Fi sprinkler controller like the Rachio.
After lawn sprinkler installation, we revisit your home for an inspection of the entire system. We test to make sure that the spray nozzles are not clogged up with dirt and are spraying correctly. Occasionally, the pop-up heads and rotters can shift or tilt due to loose soil. We make any necessary corrections during the follow-up inspections. Undoubtedly, we follow up after one week of the installation. Of course, if you notice anything unusual, call us, and we will visit your property upon your request.
