Drip Irrigation Systems

Drip irrigation (or trickle irrigation) is a type of low-pressure irrigation system by which water drips slowly into the roots of plants, either from above the soil surface or buried below.

With drip irrigation, the water goes directly into the root zone, minimizing water evaporation. Drip irrigation is distributed through tubing, piping, driplines or emitters, and with a proper installation, can be more water-efficient than sprinkler or surface irrigation methods.

Sprinkler Systems

With a Sprinkler irrigation system, water is applied in a controller manner, sprayed from overhead onto your lawn or garden. This is done via sprinklers installed along a long hose, or oscillating centre-pivot systems that originate from a middle point (or multiple points) on the property.

Sprinkler systems are the most common form of irrigation in North America, with larger scale versions of these systems frequently seen on farms. The effect of sprinkler irrigation is similar to that of rainfall, or manually watering your landscape with a hose, and ia particularly effective on uneven ground where different areas may not catch water as effectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

A property is divided into areas (depending on the volume of water you have), called stations or zones. A controller/timer tells each zone when to water and when to stop, depending on what you determine your lawn needs. A number of sprinkler heads pop out of the ground to water an area and then drop below the surface when the irrigating is complete so they cannot be seen or damaged by lawn tractors or mowers.

No, irrigation is very efficient because no water is wasted on driveways, roadways or the house due to the sprinkler head placement and precise directional angling. Most homes report they use less water. Because of automatic timing, there is no overwatering. We also install an automatic rain shut-off which overrides the timer if it rains a certain amount.

No, we have machines (Ditch Witch) that lay wire and pull pipe underground by knifing through the soil. This causes minimal disturbance to the lawn and allows us to bore under sidewalks and sometimes driveways.

We blow the water from the pipes in the late fall before the winter freeze.

On the contrary. The first zone (4 or 5 sprinklers) is the most expensive because of the timer, the rain sensor, the wiring, etc. An average property with 3 zones (two 45′ x 45′ lawns with boundaries and a flower garden with shrubs) should be around $2500 based on 4 or 5 heads per zone.

No, we’ve installed fully automated watering systems in everything from hanging baskets and window boxes to 2-acre lawns and full soccer fields, all on automatic programmable timers.
