Lawn Sprinklers, Misters, and Rotors
Irrigation Startup and RPZ Services
What you should know about irrigation systems.
Lawn sprinkler design starts with the water supply
Lawn sprinkler systems require roughly 3 gallons per minute per head. That is the flow the other factor is the pressure at that flow rate. Lawn sprinklers operate best between 50 to 60 PSI. The average home in Chicago land supplies around 12 GPM. So the average home in Illinois will have 4 sprinkler heads per zone.
The next thing to consider is sprinkler head placement
In wide open areas we use gear drive rotors and in tighter areas and beds we use mister heads. The spacing for gear drives is 25 ft and the mister spacing is 12 ft. With this distancing you will have head to head water coverage. This helps to have matched precipitation rate across the whole property. Also you need to consider the range of motion that the gear drives will be set at. 90 degree rotors should have a ¾ gallon nozzle. 180 degree should have 1.5 gallon nozzle. 360 degree should have 3.0 gallon nozzles. This will also help to create matched precipitation.
The final step is the placement of your valve boxes
You should never place the valve boxes in beds. Someday in the future this will make it hard to find and often by the time you need a repair in your valve box the roots from bushes will be tangled in the box making your repair much more difficult. You should also place boxes near the zones that will be in it. Finally I like to place boxes in places where there is very little traffic, like the sides of the house in the lawn. These are the basics of lawn sprinkler design to learn more about lawn sprinklers call Allscape today to learn more.
We build automatic fertilization into new or existing irrigation system starting at $500
Over the years I have used pellet fertilizers, weed and feed, and lawn application services with average results. I installed the automatic fertilization system on my lawn sprinkler system last year. The lawn was much thicker and at least 30% greener. My perennial beds were more lush and the colors more vibrant. Altogether the lawn sprinkler fertilization method drastically improved the look of my lawn and planting beds.
All our work comes with a five-year guarantee on parts, labor and with a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.
