Hope you had a wonderful weekend. If you have decided on an automated sprinkler system than you will have to source and lay out your sprinklers.
You will need to do a scaled drawing of your yard that includes all major features. When drawing out your sprinkler start at the corners.
Using a compass and paper you can lay out your sprinkler spray diameters or in other words spray patterns.
Scott uses a mix of Hunter and Rainbird. Two very well-known companies.
Things To Consider
- For smaller areas consider using sprays.
- There are options for flower beds. Some good choices are short radius sprays, drip irrigation or bubblers
- consider spending the extra money on stainless steel rotors. Some companies only use plastic.
The best way to map out your automated sprinkler system is to have head to head coverage. This ensures even water coverage. Also keep in mind that you should not put rotors and sprays on the same valve.
