When it comes to irrigation systems, The Yard Experts, Inc. can help you with anything from a drip leak repair to troubleshooting to complete installation or renovation of your system.

We understand the importance of water conservation and that is why we focus on offering High Efficiency (He) systems designed to properly irrigate your lawn, trees and shrubs.
Professional design and installation of your system is highly important as it will promote beautiful healthy landscapes while saving water, also these systems will require less maintenance/repairs and will last much longer than a system not installed by an expert.

When choosing a contractor, you should be wary of those who offer to charge you significantly less than others. Low bidders may not be licensed or insured and may often use cost cutting techniques than can jeopardize your lawn and shorten the life of your system.

WHAT TO EXPECT

•To begin, we will want to view your property in order to determine soil conditions, water source and water pressure, and planting materials.

•After the initial meeting, we will present you with a formal estimate. The estimate will be thorough and detail the various products used and the total price for materials and installation.

•Along with the estimate we will clearly explain all the specifics to you.

•When the job is finished we will leave your lawn and garden free of trash and debris, and present you with instructions on how to care for your new automatic sprinkler system.

BASIC AUTOMATIC RESIDENTIAL IRRIGATION SYSTEM

A professionally installed automatic irrigation system is the smart way to beautify your landscape, and one that will make your life easier. To make the most of your investment you will want to make sure it is designed and installed properly, with the diverse needs of your landscape in mind. We install and maintain the following:

CONTROLLER:
We use 3 manufacturers, Hunter, Rain Bird & Irritrol. The customer’s preference and size of the project will determine the type of controller and the number of stations (zones).

BACKFLOW PREVENTER:
Backflow prevention valves are required by county, municipal and other applicable codes at all connections with potable water supplies. We most commonly use Febco or Wilkins ¾” for our residential projects. We use copper for the down pipe, never PVC.

PVC:
All of our PVC piping is underground and we only use schedule 40.

VALVES:
We install semi-commercial grade valves. We most commonly use Hunter, Rain Bird & Irritrol.

SPRINKLERS:
Our sprinkler heads are most commonly 4” pop-ups and for water conservation purposes we use MP Rotator nozzles by Hunter.15163697_s

DRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEM:
System will consist of valve, filter, pressure regulator, ½” Polyurethane Tubing, underground Rain Bird emitters connected directly to main line and the micro-tubing. Since the emitters are installed underground, all you will see is the end of the micro-tubing next to your plant.

*** To properly diagnose and troubleshoot your existing irrigation system for leaks and operation requires a full inspection by a knowledgeable tech, there will be a $60.00 diagnostic charge which will be applied towards repairs needed  ***
