Sprinkler & Irrigation System Repair and Installation

Residential Irrigation System

When annual rainfall isn't enough to keep the grass lush green all year round, sprinkler systems offer the perfect solution. Irrigation systems range from simple above-ground sprinklers to elaborate, automated in-ground systems to garden drip irrigation systems. Sprinkler & Irrigation service and can be separated into three main categories: installation, repair, and maintenance.

1. Irrigation System Repair

Sprinkler repairs are very common. Accidents happen - either you run over a sprinkler head with a lawn mower or accidentally trip on it and break it. You will know immediately if a sprinkler head is broken because it will shoot water into the air like a geyser. A local irrigation service expert can find the sprinkler head to fit your system and install it for you.

It's also common that when you move into a house with a sprinkler system, the control unit can be cryptic and hard to program. Some of the sprinkler heads may also be buried beneath grass clippings and soil. If you moved into a home and haven't used your sprinkler system due to these complications, call the landscaping irrigation service pro above.

2. Sprinkler System Maintenance

Sprinkler system maintenance is an important aspect of a functional irrigation system. Systems have many mechanical and electrical parts which need to be cleaned or replaced from time to time. If your sprinkler system is exhibiting any of the following symptoms it's time for a maintenance call:

  • Limited range of motion
  • Low pressure, bubbling fountain heads
  • Dry spots in your grass
  • Inconsistent functionality

At the end of the season, be sure to winterize your irrigation system. This can be done by turning off the water and connecting a source of compressed air to the system. The compressed air will blow out all the water out of the lines. If you forget to winterize your system, the water in the lines may freeze over the winter which can cause cracks and breaks in the pipes underground. If you're not sure how to winterize your system, call the Local Landscaping irrigation service expert above and schedule an appointment.

If you're thinking about installing a new irrigation system there are a few options to consider when planning. The size of your property will determine how many sprinkler heads and zones are needed for complete coverage. There are also different types of sprinkler heads which provide different benefits for different zones on your property. Some sprinkler heads will rotate to provide 360 degrees of coverage, while some heads are stationary.

The brain of the sprinkler system controls water flow to each zone. An automated system is recommended. With an automated system, you can program an irrigation schedule that's best suited for your grass type, your area, and the time of year. The landscape irrigation experts at Local Landscaping will help you choose a sprinkler system that suits your needs and your budget, and they'll install it for you!
