With the exception of
native plants, most landscapes need some water to stay healthy. Most
home landscapes are a combination of turf, trees, shrubs and flowers.
The most efficient and cost effective method of watering a home
landscape is by using an automated system.
An automated irrigation
system is comprised of a combination of valves (to turn the water off /
on), pipes, sprinkler heads, flexible tubing, drip emitters and a
controller that, well, controls everything. Each valve operates an area
of sprinklers or drippers. The plants in an area controlled by one
valve should all have the same water needs.
homeowner can learn about equipment, system design, installation and
troubleshooting online and at many local home & garden and hardware
stores. Many excellent landscape professionals live and work in our
area and can assist with your irrigation needs.
