Time and time again, Heads Up Sprinkler is called in AFTER a customer has already designed their landscape and even planted the plants. Then, at that point we have to tell them their hard work is in jeopardy.
If you call us in during the planning process, we can then work with your landscaper to ensure the sprinkler system is going to work properly for th types of plants and greenery you are going to plant. Each type of plant will take a little different watering schedule, and with the installation of an automatic system and the right locations, your plants will thrive. It’s only when the plantings either get too much water, or not enough, that your plants will suffer.
Homeadvisor had some good advice about sprinkler systems which also emphasizes why you need an effective sprinkler plan:
“Determining Zones for Your Sprinkler System
When you decide to install a sprinkler system in your yard you will want to first determine the different zones which need watering. Some zones may require more water than others, or need to be watered at certain times of the day. These zones can include:
- Garden Areas: Your garden will require special sprinkler heads which water more gently than the ones watering your grass. Tiny spray heads or bubblers carefully water areas which have flowers or vegetables. This will ensure that edibles are not bruised, and that delicate petals are not torn off.
- Shrubs and Bushes: A landscaped area with shrubs and bushes will require high-rise sprinkler heads that cover taller plants.
- Lawn: The areas of your yard which have large patches of grass will require the most common sprinkler heads, which deliver a consistent, even spray over the entire area of grass. The reach of the spray should cover the lawn, without hitting areas like sidewalks or porches.”
We can’t effectively determine your correct sprinkler zones if we don’t know what your landscape plan is. Give us a call and we can make certain to install the correct sprinkler system for your nes landscape plan!
