A Sprinkler System
The First Step to Beautiful Landscape Construction
With Idaho’s hot, dry summers, a sprinkler system is a must for a beautiful lawn, and it must be installed before you start landscaping. If you don’t lay down your sprinkler system first, you may need to uproot what you plant to install the system, causing frustration and costing you time and money.
When installing a sprinkler system, your yard is broken into zones based on shape and water needs of the entire yard. Areas that are predominantly in the shade, for example, would need much less water than areas in full sun so they may be in separate zones. In addition, your front and back yards will usually be different zones.
A sprinkler system is comprised of pipes which deliver the water to the selected zones. These pipes must be placed in the ground before the grass. Then there are valves, which allow the water to move through those pipes. Next in the irrigation system are the heads, which distribute the water to the pre-determined areas of the lawn. And last but not least is the controller, usually located in the garage, that turns the water for the the different zones on and off at selected times.
