The high stakes of DIY installation projects are not worth what it will take to remediate self-inflicted property damage or sustained bodily harm. Without a proper strategy in laying out an irrigation plan, or the professional experience to properly execute the design and installation, the result can be costly.

One common mistake DIY consumers often commit, for example, is overestimating mainline tubing capacity, which will inevitably affect water flow when the appropriate calculations are not made. The running length should always be in proportion with the flow rate, which is measured by gallons per hour. Miscalculations, in this case, can result in water pressure inefficiencies.

It is better if a licensed technician designs and installs a system. Every property has a unique set of watering needs, and only experts with years of training and experience should be trusted to determine what kind of sprinkler head, nozzle, or flow rate is required for a given irrigation zone.

Spray sprinkler systems take the effort out of watering lawns, gardens, and other landscapes. With an automated system, there’s no need to gradually water each plant in a garden, or to periodically move a hose sprinkler from one irrigation zone on another. Some systems have timers and soil sensors, which remove the guesswork in planning how long to water each part of a property.

Spray sprinkler systems can also irrigate large areas with greater efficiency than manual systems. When installed, sprinkler heads are strategically placed to cover as wide an area as possible without overlapping other irrigation zones. This ensures an even distribution of water throughout the property.

Drip irrigation systems, by comparison, only cover a small area. They rely on the slow “drip” of water from a tube network to irrigate trees, shrubs, or flowers. For that reason, most experts recommend a spray sprinkler system for grass lawns and a drip irrigation system for garden beds, vegetables, and container plants.


01. Assessment – The first step is to assess the scope of the project and to get a sense of what kind of system is required, including any price or landscape limitations the customer may have. Expert technicians will determine “irrigation zones” and recommend what kind of sprinkler head or flow rate is needed. They’ll also offer “smart” features like timers and rain sensors, which further automate the irrigation process.

02. Estimate – Once the scope of the project is determined and agreed upon, the licensed contractor will issue a cost estimate. This includes any variables or add-ons the customer may have elected. The idea is to provide customers with a complete sense of how much they are likely to pay for the installation and maintenance of the spray sprinkler system.

03. Installation – Once contracted, the installation usually takes a day to complete. Depending on the size of the property, as well as any local regulations or ordinances that need to be followed, it may take a bit longer. Installers usually follow up after the job to make sure everything is working properly.

The best way to reduce the need for service repairs is to regularly inspect the system for signs of failure. That means checking for leaks or broken lines, and making sure the sprinkler heads are always aimed in the right direction.

Look for puddles or patches of grass that seem drier than others. These signs indicate there is an uneven distribution of water, resulting from a leak, a misaligned sprinkler head, or a clogged water line. It’s also a good idea to run the system in the afternoon rather than morning or night, as it’s harder to see how moisture is being distributed at those times.

If you discover any clogged water lines or broken or misaligned sprinkler heads, call a licensed technician to make the repairs. This is especially important if you have a complicated irrigation system with timers, sensors, or other “smart” features. Landscapes change over time, and what was the right solution for when the system was installed may not be anymore.
