- Conduct an Audit of Irrigation Systems
A regularly scheduled careful inspection of your water irrigation system helps to identify problems before they get worse. At F.S. Commercial Landscape, we will inspect all components of your irrigation system. We can identify broken sprinkler heads and rotors, check for leaks in pipes, ensure that valves are tightened and working properly. We will also examine the controls and settings to be sure your irrigation system is set to function efficiently.
- Install Modern Irrigation Tools
Your commercial irrigation plan should include new equipment and procedures that help to take advantage of weather conditions, the land’s composition and new technologies. Among the new tools available are:
- Irrigation controllers and water conservation clocks that can sense the weather and adjust output accordingly
- Sprinkler systems that will turn off automatically when it begins to rain water usage and detect equipment performance issues
- Pressure regulators that reduce the fogging effect that only increases the amount of evaporation
- Advanced head nozzles that offer more efficient spray angles and water patterns
- Reach the Roots
Using a drip irrigation system applies a low stream of water that’s focused on delivering water to the root system of plants, shrubs, trees and grasses on your property. These solutions help to maximize water absorption while reducing evaporation rates. Another approach to improve root strength and growth is to use spray heads with low precipitation rates, run for longer periods but are run less frequently.
- Treat Trees and Bushes Differently
New tree plantings need different watering systems. Installing a separate zone and low-pressure drip systems help new trees become established faster. New lines should be installed to not cross a new tree’s root system. For bushes and shrubs, flat spray heads under the plants should be used.
