Are there different systems to choose from?
Although every system should be tailored to meet individual needs, a typical system will be comprised of a controller (which functions as the brains of the system), valves (which open and close to release and stop the flow of water to underground pipes) and sprinklers (which actually distribute the water to a given area.)
How do I know what type of system is best for me?
A E. Michigan Irrigation & Lighting professional will take into consideration factors such as water source and pressure, soil type, planting materials and weather conditions. They will use all this information to design a system specific to the needs of your landscape.
Will an automatic sprinkler system use more water than I'm currently using?
No. In fact, it will conserve water. You'll never have to worry about runoff from over watering or wasting water when you forget to turn off the hose.
Does having a sprinkler system really save time?
Yes. You won't have to spend another minute of your valuable leisure time watering your lawn. Your new system will do all of the watering for you – even when you're away from home.
Will an automatic sprinkler system water as well as I can water by hand?
It will do a much better job because a professionally designed system will deliver exactly the right amount of water to individual lawn and garden areas.
How much will a good system cost?
The price of a system will vary depending upon factors such as property size, type of landscaping and special designs. But you can count on E. Michigan Irrigation & Lighting to design a cost-effective system comprised of quality products.
