When you add sprinklers to your lawn and garden, it’s a big commitment. Your contractor will need access to your property to set up your sprinkler system. Installing an irrigation system has many moving parts with tools, shovels, and mechanical tools to create trenches for piping. There are a few things to know before and during the commercial irrigation installation process. Here are some things to keep in mind when investing in a new commercial irrigation system.
Do Your Research
Doing some preliminary research can make the process easier. Have a rough idea of the features you are looking for, the type of landscape you have, and how much you are willing to spend. This can help you settle on an irrigation contractor and have meaningful conversations with them in the early stages. Other key information to have on hand is what irrigation system, if any, is already present on your property.
Do you have odd-shaped areas on your property that could create zoning challenges? When planning for a sprinkler installation, your property boundaries should be considered. For example, if you have odd spaces on your lawn, more zones may be necessary, likely increasing the installation costs.
Get the Necessary Permits
Any large property improvement involves some sort of permit at the local level, but there can be additional obstacles for large commercial properties. Determine which local governing bodies have regulations or require permits or inspections. Your main concerns will likely be city or county requirements but also look into any stakeholders such as HOAs or landlords who may have their own stipulations.
Choose the Proper Sprinkler Heads
Choosing the right sprinkler head for your system makes a big difference. You don’t want sprinkler heads that are too small for the zones, but you also don’t want to overwater your lawn. You should pick a suitable sprinkler head based on the vegetation and your lawn’s needs. Finding the right solution can be complicated. So, if you need help selecting the right heads, ask the professionals.
