Lawn Sprinklers & Rotors
Lawn sprinkler design starts with the water supply. We consider the landscape to be watered when deciding the type of sprinkler heads to be installed in each zone. Then we use the right gallon per minute nozzle for each particular head to achieve matched precipitation.

There are 2 good reasons to use drip irrigation; first, when dealing with low water pressure because it uses very few gallons per minute.
And second, when the water supply is from a well with high iron content.It will prevent the orange staining of all nearby surfaces.
Drip irrigation is also the most ecologically friendly form of irrigation because it puts water down where it is needed in very small amounts.

Irrigation Head Placement
The next thing to consider is sprinkler head placement. In wide open areas we use gear drive rotors and in tighter areas and beds we use mister heads. The spacing for gear drives is 25 ft and the mister spacing is 12 ft. With this distancing you will have head to head water coverage. This helps to have matched precipitation rate across the whole property. Also you need to consider the range of motion that the gear drives will be set at. 90 degree rotors should have a ¾ gallon nozzle. 180 degree should have 1.5 gallon nozzle. 360 degree should have 3.0 gallon nozzles.
The final step is the placement of your valve boxes. You should never place the valve boxes in beds. Someday in the future this will make it hard to find and often by the time you need a repair in your valve box the roots from bushes will be tangled in the box making your repair much more difficult. You should also place boxes near the zones that will be in it. Finally I like to place boxes in places where there is very little traffic, like the sides of the house in the lawn. These are the basics of lawn sprinkler design to learn more about lawn sprinklers call Allscape today to learn more.
Rain sensors are now required on all new installations of irrigation systems. Water conservation is getting to be more and more important these days. There is no reason to feel guilty for running your Allscape Sprinkler System because it has weathermatic smart clock technology.
Weathermatic smart clocks have weather stations that go to the internet and find the weather conditions for your zip code, then change the watering run times to put out just the amount of water that your landscape needs. The results in no over watering that causes run off and no under watering causing lawn and plants to brown. I installed this on my system and reduced gallons of water used by 36%.
How much does a sprinkler system cost to install?
There are a lot of parameters that go into this question but rough numbers without major complications are, 1/4 acre 3,500.00, 1/2 acre = 4,250.00, 3/4 acre = 5,000.00, 1 acre = 5,750.00, 2 acres =11,500.00.
What is the difference between over spray and dedicated sprinkler systems?
Dedicated sprinkler systems separate your planting beds and lawn areas to water them different amounts, because usually your lawn wants more water than your planting beds. this saves water but costs more to build because there are more sprinkler heads and more zones.
Over spray waters the lawn and the beds at the same time. This will put a little more water on the beds than they need, but will not cause any damage to the planting beds. These systems are very popular because they cost much less to install due to the lower number of sprinkler heads and zones.
Can my irrigation system fertilize and do pest control on my property?
Yes, we can install a fertile earth system that uses nature friendly chemicals to fertilize and do pest control every time the system runs. this will do a much better job a lawn and bed fertilization that 4 seperate applications of not so nature friendly chemicals and drastically reduse the mosquitoes and insects that are on your property.
Can I do weed control through my sprinklers?
No, weed control chemicals are very dangerous to be sprayed in the air.
