Do your plants need irrigation system Installation? Of course they do!

Continuous water supply is very important for plants. Especially for annuals and perennials in bloom and short ornamental shrubs.

Likewise indispensable for smaller and bigger flower pots and hanging baskets which can be drought easily in hot weather. Mainly if they stand on paved or pebbled surfaces.

And can’t forget to mention vegetable plots. For growing healthy harvests regular watering is essential.
Of course- if you expect uninterrupted evergreen lawn, irrigation is also inevitable. Nice turf is the most important ornament of a traditional English garden. Irrigation system can provide the best even water coverage for the lawn.

Science of irrigation

Do you need irrigation system? Of course you do!

I am sure you felt yourself fed up with hand watering at least once. Fighting with long loopy hoses, always stopping reels at the end of a long hot day, when other to-dos are still waiting before falling in the bed… Would be great to have a robot, who could finish all the boring gardening things whilst you just enjoy the beauty without any effort.

Actually these robots exist. You have heard of lawn mower robots but you probably have never thought of irrigation system as an automatic way of doing one of the most boring repeatable task.

And not just making your life easier by replacing you, but a well-designed irrigation system can achieve more: providing the ideal amount of water in the best time for plants, avoiding most of the evaporation and even monitoring the forecast to reduce the chance of double watering.

Whilst you can do the one thing why you wanted a garden: enjoy it.

irrigation system installation process

Installation process

Irrigation systems can be compared to electric network. But they are built in your soil not in your house wall. There are much more hidden, then visible.

When we come up with installation of hidden parts, we mostly talking about pipes and pipes. Pipes connect the water source with different parts of the garden. Between them, there are distribution units to help dividing the available water pressure and flow among different parts of your garden.

Of course we don’t want to turn over your whole garden during the installation process because our main goal to establish a base of a nice garden with irrigation. So wherever it’s possible, pipework will be laid on the surface, invisibly. At bottom of matured hedges, fences, behind sheds and houses, the pipes don’t run in trenches.

But if there is no way to avoid we have to dig trenches. Feel free to have a look on the picture here. This is the way how we make trenches. And when the pipes are laid, the trenches will be covered and compacted. Our price includes recovery by seeding but we are ready to lay turf on the trace in case of demand.

  • Follow what’s happening

Learn Your System

Irrigation systems know much more than you think. Stepping up from hoses to irrigation systems is like changing your dial phone with a smart phone.

Controller is the brain of your system. Nowadays they can be connected to the web and use actual and forecasted weather information to adapt the start and length of irrigation programs to the weather conditions. It’s not an extra hype but a very convenient way of saving the valuable water by up to 50%, in interest of the planet and your wallet.

You don’t have to fear of programming as the controllers installed by us have very intuitive and easy-to-use operating software. If you are still not confident, we can offer you our monitoring service via internet in our Optimum Plus Service Plan.
When your system is supplied with local freeze, wind, soil, rain or evaporation sensors, the program becomes more accurate.

Other parts of an irrigation system are also impressive. Water flow of lawn or bed sprinklers can be reduced or increased from head-by-head by replacing their nozzles (within some limitations). It makes possible to tailor the system to the changing and growing up garden during the years.
It’s also true for the planter emitters. Those bubblers can be adapted to any water demand anytime.
Beds or even part of the beds can be isolated temporarily in case of such a demand (for example when some veggie beds are not planted for longer).

There are some adjustments that can be done by you but you can let us to do them for you. Stay informed regarding these techniques via our Facebook page.

When you are fully aware of your system after the first season you will find your irrigation system an extremely useful thing in keeping your plants in the best condition.

Lawn sprinklers

Technology behind the spectacular look

Lawn sprinklers are the most known and most amazing parts of an irrigation system but that’s just one side of a coin.
Installing them is the most cost effective way to supply water evenly for the lawn naturally without compacting effect.
Usually they used for irrigating lawn or turf area but able to give excellent coverage for perennials or small shrubs as well. This case the heads are also placed in the lawn -in front of the beds- but the jets are directed towards the plants. The equipments are hidden in their case below the surface but when the zone is fired up the water pressure raises their stems above the surface. Due to the different usage demands sprinklers can be installed with shorter or longer stems from 2 upto 12 inches.

Best way to supply water for planters, pots and sovereign plants individually

These emitters with or without stake are the most simple way to supply water to pots and hanging baskets. They can also be installed on dripline for adding extra water for soliter plants.
Most of the time bubblers are installed as a separate zone on spaghetti pipes to lead them directly to the pots. Size of this pipe (6mm) makes easy to hide it behind the planters and lead them even between slabs or terrace boards nicely. Water flow of these bubblers are adjustable on a wide scale. Whatever is the demand of the plant it will get the right amount.
The adjusting mechanism even makes the full closing possible on bubblers so when some planters are not planted yet there is no wasting of water.

Emitting efficiency with the least loss

This invention is originated from Israel where the efficient use of valuable water is more important than anything. By its pressure-neutral emitters dripline is able to supply the same amount of water regardless the inlet pressure (above 0.5 bar). Hence it can be used effectively even in any low pressure main water operated irrigation system in your area.
Driplines are commonly used to irrigate flower and shrub beds. Depending on their type the lines are run 25-50 cm distance (generally 30 cm) from each other all along the beds.
When they are used in beds thay can be hid by mulch or chipping becoming nearly invisible this way. (Covering by compost or soil is not recommended because the roots of plants are tend to grow in it via the emitter holes and block them.)
Fairly new technology is the subsurface drip where the blocking issue is not a factor.Due to its relatively high price the subsurface drip is used for supplying water of exclusive turf areas without installation of sprinklers.

Micro sprinklers

Watering and rasing of humidity with the same device

Micro sprinklers are easy-to-install irrigation way with minimal disturbance of plants.
They can even be installed in quite wide shrub beds with only one feed laid in the middle of bed. Sprinklers are installed on stems and the stems can be moved around the connection point depending on the plant’s needs. Depending on their nozzles the micro sprinklers can cover circular areas between one and 4 m radius. Some type of them are adjustable or can be shut off. Micros are recommended for irrigating existing mature shrub beds but perform well in newly planted areas as well.

    For anyone considering a water irrigation system for their plants or grass, we couldn’t recommend Nick @gardeners rain irrigation specialists more highly. The system we have installed is fantastic. It can be operated remotely and adjusted … More simply.Nick is professional, efficient, hard working and a really lovely guy. From beginning to end, he has gone over and above in order to offer an excellent service. He completed the job in are fairly large and complex garden within 3 days. He started and completed the job earlier than expected even though he came across issues with unexpected excessive rubble and a thick plastic membrane that caused issues with machinery. He has left the garden neat and well seeded in the very thin trench required for the pipe work.We couldn’t be happier with the job Nick has done and with the heat wave this summer, I’m really pleased to have a well kept lush lawn that doesn’t require two hours of watering every evening. The system uses much less water, has a rain sensor and the night use ensure the water is used most effectively.We’re so impressed and grateful to Nick for all of his hard work.
