Starting a landscaping project means that you will deal with irrigation issues in some way. For example, if you are adding a new cement walkway or driveway, you will need to have the irrigation related to this addition checked and possibly modified. If you are taking on a landscaping project, there are three reasons you should consider using an irrigation service to help you through the project.
Analysis of Current Irrigation System
The first reason you should use irrigation services for your landscape project is for an analysis. The analysis process will look at your current irrigation system and evaluate any issues you may have now. It will also look at your landscaping project to decide if any changes to your irrigation system should be made and what those changes should be. The irrigation service technician will sit down with you and go over this analysis and help you narrow down the changes you want to make and how you want to make them.
Installation of Irrigation Systems
You may be under the misconception that irrigation systems are simply new drainage ditches or guttering systems. The truth is that there are several types of irrigation systems that may be used in your landscaping projects. Some of these systems will need to be installed, and a professional irrigation service can help with this. For example, you may want a sprinkler system installed that will allow you to water your plants and gardening areas. The system can be set on a timer, placed underground with pop-up sprinkler heads and kept at ground level when not in use. The entire system can be installed by an irrigation service business.
Your irrigation system, sprinkler systems and other systems related to irrigation need to be winterized. This winterization helps reduce the chance of frozen pipes, frozen areas of your irrigation system or damage to the system due to the changing cold weather conditions. The truth is that you can do a portion of this yourself with basic maintenance. However, there are certain winterizing steps that will need a professional's touch. For example, if you have a heating system attached to your sprinklers, it will need to be configured for the colder months.
After reading these three reasons, if you feel you should use an irrigation service for your landscape projects, then you are ready to get started contact your local irrigation service provider. They can assist you with consultations, scheduling, pricing and questions you have.
