Every home and business owner understands the importance of an attractive outdoor landscape, but even the most beautifully designed landscape will not look its best without ongoing attention. One of the most important elements of keeping landscape looking its best includes proper irrigation, especially during those times of year when rainfall is scarce.

There are many different types of irrigation systems available. The most common are spray, rotary and drip irrigation.

Spray systems are the most popular form of irrigation for home lawns and gardens, and are most advantageous for small yard areas. The nozzles are easily changed to accommodate different spray positions, and the system in general is quite dependable, requiring little maintenance.

Rotary systems are most frequently used for large areas and are commonly seen on athletic fields. Rotary systems throw one or more streams of water up to 40 feet. This system is advantageous to cover large areas in which a high number of spray heads would be impractical. Despite the velocity of the water from the sprayer, rotary systems actually produce less water than spray systems.

Drip irrigation is one of the most efficient, water conserving type of irrigation. Drip irrigation has a number of important advantages over other types of irrigation, including: Drip irrigation systems use a network of pipes and tubing to slowly and efficiently distribute water at low pressure. A low pressure distribution of water provides less waste than traditional overhead sprinkler types of watering, and in many cases a slow and steady water flow provides healthier and less disease prone plants.

Your new irrigation system comes with a full 3 year warranty on all parts and labor so you can rest at ease.
