lawn irrigation in chelmsford

A neatly trimmed, lush green lawn provides a canvas around which the texture and colours of the border planting are displayed.

lawn irrigation in chelmsford-To develop an effective lawn irrigation system you need quality gear driven pop up sprinklers which are installed in the lawn using underground pipework, making the system invisible when not in use. The sprinkler rises out of the ground when watering  commences, and covers the area in rain like droplets.

Once watering is finished, the sprinkler retract back to the lawn allowing you to mow the grass and to use your garden as normal. Regular lawn watering is also important in areas of heavy use, allowing the grass to recover even during dry weather. For areas with only shallow soil depths, regular irrigation of lawns is vital, as only a few days of hot, dry weather will deplete the water reserves of the grass.

Lawn watering sprinklers are available in a wide range of types and sizes to ensure even water distribution for every conceivable lawn shape or size.Although every lawn is different, we use two main sprinkler layouts- edge watering and centre watering.Edge watering places the sprinklers on the perimeter of the lawn, with the sprinklers operating on a 180 degree arc, spraying into the lawn. This configuration reduces over spay and provides more even coverage in windy areas.

Centre watering keep costs down by using fewer nozzles, as full circle nozzles are placed down the centre of the lawn. However, to ensure reasonable coverage, the sprinkler must be set to throw further than the lawn, resulting in less even watering and more over spray.
