After an installation design is created by our expert irrigation designers based on the needs of your unique landscape, our irrigation installation team steps in to carry out the process of actually installing the system. This is cherry on top that we provide to you. Our services include everything from the design of the landscape to the installation of the irrigation system so that your landscape can go on to be healthy and happy for many years to come. Here is a little bit of information about the behind the scenes process of installing an irrigation system into your new or existing landscape.
Flagging and Digging
Using the design that our irrigation design team has created, our installation team will begin by placing a flag at every sprinkler location in the design and use strings to show where the water lines will run. Our team will take special care to ensure that gas, power and cable lines are not affected by the irrigation system. Trenches will be dug for the pipes along the lines marked out by the strings. Special tools will be used to execute the trenching and care will be taken around existing walkways and other structures within the landscape.
Water Supply and Materials
The water supply will then be connected and ready to attach to the irrigation system as soon as it is in place. There are many different materials that may be used in the installation of your irrigation system. PVC pipe comes in many shapes and sizes and poly pipe is great for use in colder climates. PVC cement is what will be used to secure the fittings and the pipe into its proper place. A primer and clamps may also be used in the installation process.
Assembly and Flush
First, the sprinklers and their connectors will be laid out at each stake. After that, the pipes will be laid in the trenches according to the design. Assembly is done systematically by moving from one sprinkler to the next. After the whole system is connected, it is time to flush the system of any dirt or debris that may have gotten in the pipes during the connection process. Each valve will need to be checked individually for build up and to make sure that it is working properly.
Attaching and Wiring
After each of sprinklers is attached to the flushed-out system, it is time to wire. The valves are all wired to a timer according the zone that it is connected to. Our team will ensure that each zone is wired properly so that the irrigation can work as effectively as possible to maintain the proper irrigation of your landscape.
