Frequently Asked Questions


Will automatic sprinkler systems water better than I can by hand?

Yes, automatic systems are much more effective because we design the system to deliver the right amount of water at the right times to individual lawn and garden areas.

Will automatic sprinkler systems use more water than I do by hand?

No, in fact, an automatic sprinkler system will conserve water. You do not have to worry about over watering or wasting water if you forget to move the hose or turn off the water. Plus, with a rain sensor, your automatic sprinkler system will know when it is raining and shut itself off when water is not needed.

Does an automatic sprinkler system save time?

Yes, you will not have to spend your valuable time watering your lawn or gardens anymore. The system will do all of the watering for you whether you are at home or not.

What type of system will I need?

It is best to talk to a professional irrigation contractor, who is experienced about such factors as water sources, pressure requirements, soil types, plantings and proper installation procedures. He will then take all of this information and design a sprinkler system to fit your specific needs for your landscape.
