Tips Regarding Lawn Irrigation Systems

Although there are numerous types of lawn irrigation systems to select from, the correct installation and usage of the lawn irrigation systems is what will determine the success of your lawn watering efforts.


Selection of Sprinkler Heads
Rather than going with large sprinkler heads, go with the smaller types and also make sure that you buy more than you think you will need. If one of the heads gets damaged you will be able to replace it immediately without having to search for the same type of sprinkler head two or three years down the line.


Thickness of the Pipes
No matter which one of the many lawn irrigation systems you select, be sure to use smaller pipes as this will increase the water flow strength. It is important to select the smallest possible pipes that will fit the particular system.


Bury Deep
Don’t compromise when it comes to the laying of pipes. The deeper the pipes are located, the better because you may accidentally hit one while gardening if the pipes are not deep enough. Draw a plan of where the pipes are or take pictures during installation. If you need to add to the system in future you will not have to dig up the whole garden.
