There's an easier, more effective way to water your lawn. An automatic underground sprinkler system lets you enjoy a lush, healthy lawn all season long. Without lifting a finger.

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 most of the best financial investments they can make in their home since appearance is a key factor in determining market value. And guess what - they're all right!

Thinking of putting in a watering system yourself?

If you have been considering a system, whether installed by someone else or put in yourself, let us know. We can help with design and instructions on installing an automatic underground sprinkler system.

There is a lot of work to putting a system in, but if you are an avid do-it-yourselfer you may have the skills to put a system in yourself. The most important part is getting the particulars right. Such as gallons per minute available from your water source, be it a pump or city water supply. Size of the lawn as a whole, and divided up into sections.

This will give us the information needed to determine the number and type of sprinkler heads required to water each area. Matched precipitation is important also, this will put the same amount of water on all parts of the lawn so you don't have dry spots and wet spots.

If you are serious about tackling this project, but are unsure of where to start, we can (when given the required information) design a system for you and provide instructions on how to do each step of the installation process. If this interests you Contact us.

We can design your lawn sprinkler system for you with the following help from you, e-mail a certificate of survey of your property, which is available from the city if you don't have one, Otherwise you will need to measure your yard following the simple steps below.

Measuring Your Yard

The first step to designing your sprinkler system is to measure your property.

  • Step 1. Measure the distance around the outer edge of your lawn otherwise known as the property line. Draw the measurements on graph paperas you measure.
  • Step 2. Measure the distance around the house and any landscaping you might have around the house, and add the measurements on the graph paper.
  • Step 3. You will need to figure out where the house sits on the lot, and that can be done by the following, Measure from the front right corner of the house to right side property line and mark that on the paper, Then measure from the front right corner of the house to the street and mark that on the graph paper.

Water Pressure & Water Flow

Once you have the yard measured, you will have to figure out your water pressure and your gallons per minute, To figure out your G.P.M or gallons per minute, you will need a 5 gallon pail and a watch, for the PSI, you will need a pressure gauge.

Go to the faucet closest to where your main water line will be feeding your sprinkler system, Be sure you have a watch with a second hand, Closely time how long it takes to fill a five gallon pail. 30 seconds = 10 gallons per minute. 20 seconds = 15 gallons per minute, 15 seconds = 20 gallons per minute. Accuracy is very important.

Our Design fee is $149.99, We will credit this fee to your sprinkler system purchase.

This will include a detailed drawing of your property, sprinkler head and valve location so you will know exactly what you will need before you begin your project.
