Carolina Landscape Associates Inc.’s Sprinkler Installation
Installing an automatic sprinkler system is a great way to save time, money and water, all while guaranteeing a beautiful lawn. To make sure you get the best sprinkler system for your property, choose contractors who know the ins and outs of lawn irrigation. When you interview companies, make sure to ask many questions. Talk about materials, designs, and processes, not just the cost to install a sprinkler system.
Carolina Landscape Associates Inc. values clear communication to help you make informed decisions. We’ve put together a list of questions you should always ask landscaping contractors. Before installing an automatic sprinkler system, make sure you're happy with your contractor.
Are the Contractors Licensed to Install a Lawn Sprinkler System?
The first step to any lawn irrigation project is to make sure the contractors you hire are licensed and insured. If something goes wrong during the installation process, you don’t want to be held responsible. It’s within your rights to see the company’s credentials.
Some municipalities need a permit for underground sprinkler system installations. Knowledgeable contractors will inform you about whether you need one.
What Does the Sprinkler Installation Process Look Like?
When it comes to investing in your commercial property, you want to make sure you know what you’re paying for. How long will the installation process take? What sort of disruptions will you have to work around? What schematics will the contractor provide you with before beginning the project? These are all important questions to ask when comparing estimates. The more information you gather from prospective landscaping companies, the better!
What Materials Do the Contractors Use for Their Underground Sprinkler Systems?
Always ask whether the company uses polyethylene (PE) or polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes. PVC pipes are flexible, cost-effective and quick to install. While more expensive, PVC pipes are also more durable. Depending on the size and scope of the project, one may be more effective than the other.
Can I Expect a Significant Difference in Water Usage After the Sprinkler Installation?
Not all lawn irrigation systems are created equal. Depending on the brand and type of sprinkler head, you may see more drastic changes in water consumption. That said, any automatic sprinkler system is more efficient than watering by hand or with movable sprinklers. That’s because you can program the correct amount of moisture for each zone on your property. Experienced professionals can explain the most efficient and effective times to water your lawn. Carolina Landscape Associates Inc. suggests you schedule your watering for the cooler periods of the day and for times when there's less winds.
How Do Contractors Determine the Cost to Install a Sprinkler System?
Many factors affect an estimate for a water sprinkler system; including the size of the property, the number of zones, the materials used, and the type of landscaping. Always make sure you get a comprehensive estimate from potential irrigation contractors.
