Our design service includes a complete system design, printed for you on 24" x 36" plain paper. It is a scaled drawing, indicating head placement and nozzle selection. The zones are matched to your water supply to insure peak performance. We will need your property map and a completed questionnaire to complete your design.

If you are committed to installing your irrigation system, and want the plans and material as soon as possible, please indicate your choices on the questionnaire. We will notify you of the cost and availability by phone. Your parts will ship the next business day, after your acceptance of the package and your authorization of charges.

A. In order to correctly Plan for the Design of your In-Ground Irrigation System, and placement of your Sprinklers, please make a copy or two of your survey.  A survey is usually included in your home closing papers.

B. On a copy of your survey draw all patios, decks, walkways, sheds, driveways, etc. Identify fences, walls, planters, trees, shrubs, flowers beds, and garden plots.  Draw a box on your plan to show the location of your water meter or pump.  Draw an x near an electrical outlet where you would like to locate your residential electronic controller. Using arrows, show significant changes in elevation.  Do not include gradual slopes. Arrows are to point toward the lower elevation. NOTE: If you don't have a survey use graph paper and draw your property and all  information to scale 1"=10' or 1"=20'.

Keep in mind that your In-Ground Irrigation System will be designed using your information, so the more precise your drawing, the better the Design and performance of your Lawn Sprinklers.  Click here for examples of both an original and a detailed survey.
