Q

How often do I have to water my lawn and shrubs?

A

Depending on your soil composition, every other day is adequate. Sandy soil might require additional watering for shorter duration. New landscaping will also require additional watering. The ideal watering amount is figured on about an inch per week.

Q

Is there a correct time to water?

A

Yes, the correct time to water is very early in the morning. This avoids some evaporation from the sun and allows the turf to soak up the water. Watering during night time hours should be avoided so funguses and molds don’t grow while the turf stays wet all night.

Q

Will your design and products help me save water?

A

Yes, our systems use the most efficiently designed sprinkler heads and nozzles rate available. Our design will match the precipitation rate throughout your turf. The watering schedule will also be planned to minimize waste caused by runoff, wind drift, and evaporation.

Q

How much does a system cost?

A

The average system is about $2300. Systems will vary with options, but some can be as inexpensive as $1300.

Q

Will my system freeze in the winter?

A

Your system will need to be blown out with compressed air each year to winterize the system from freezing and damaging your pipes and sprinkler heads. We use automatic scheduling for the winterizing of all the systems we install so you don’t have to remember to call us because we’ll call you.

Q

How do you install the system in my yard without destroying existing plants and materials?

A

We design a system that does not require moving existing plants or plantings. This may require some hand excavation. The pipes will be “pulled” into the ground with a vibratory plow that minimizes damage to the turf. In most cases, visible evidence that your system was installed will not be apparent after a period of two weeks.

Q

Will the system be custom fitted to my property?

A

Your design will take into account such factors as changes in terrain elevation, sunny or shaded areas, and landscape plantings in place or planned. These factors are important in determining sprinkler placement, zoning, your watering schedule and the length of watering times.

Q

Is it safe for your to dig in my yard?

A

Yes, StayGreen Irrigation takes all the necessary steps to ensure a safe job. We handle calling Dig Safe to ensure all underground utilities are marked before we begin the job. Dig Safe 1-888-dig-safe. It’s the law.
