Q. How is an irrigation sprinkler
A. The process starts with a site visit and survey of your lawn.
We will come at your convenience, your presence is not required to measure
the lawn and take the water pressure. We will then calculate an estimate
based on that information. If you agree to the estimate, we coordinate
with DigSafe for the lawn to be marked for pipes, wires and cables.
This takes approximately three days. We then use our ditch witch to
lay the pipe and then proceed to installing heads. The time this takes
depends on the size of the lawn, but in general most residential systems
are installed in one day. The plumbing is coordinated with the installation.
We then hook up to the house and turn the system on. Lastly, heads are
adjusted to cover the lawn to our specifications. We will walk you through
setting and reading the timer and rain sensor as well as anything else
you'd like to know.
Q. Do I need to get
a plumber or call the town for permits?
A. No and No. We take care of the plumbing and the permits. We
work with a master certified plumber who is very experienced in hooking
up irrigation systems.
Q. Is irrigation costly?
A. A high quality irrigation system from Grassroots Irrigation is
only a fraction of the cost of landscaping and serves as a cost effective
way of protecting your landscaping investment.
Q. What happens when
A. All our residential systems include a rain sensor that automatically
turns off the system in the event of rain.
Q. What do I need
to do when the season is over?
A. We will schedule to come and close your system, as well as
open your system in the spring.
Q. What will my lawn
look like when you're done?
A. We use a machine called a ditch witch to pull the pipe through
your lawn. This machine inserts a blade holding one end of the pipe
into the lawn and vibrates as the machine drags it forward. The machine
leaves a seam in the lawn where the blade has been. We go over the seam
with a tamper to level the earth that has been disturbed by rocks and
roots. We leave little imprint on your lawn.
Q. What if I want
to add to the system after you are done?
A. We can easily add heads and zones to your system.
Q. How does the lawn
mower operate over the lawn?
A. The heads we install will be flush with the ground and will
not disturb lawn mowing.
Q. Does Grassroots
Irrigation do landscaping as well?
A. No, Grassroots Irrigation's focus is on irrigation
and irrigation only. Our sister company, Joyce Landscaping, Inc. is
available if you have any landscaping needs.
