Sprinklers

With the HIGH COST of water these days, we are one of only a few Irrigation companies to specialize in HIGH EFFICIENCY sprinkler systems since 2007. We were one of the first companies to introduce widespread use of drip irrigation (which sometimes is the way to go) in Metro-Atlanta. We also use high efficiency rotors, heads and nozzles to minimize waste. "Does high efficiency cost me more?" The simple answer to that is; Not in the long run. it may cost 10-20% more upfront but the result is a rapid ROI (return on investment (or cost) from the substantial water savings. Many folks are seeing water bills come in at $250-$600 a month. This is substantial when added up over the year.
One thing is for sure, watering with a device such as the one on the right is about the most wasteful way to irrigate turf or plants. You would have to reposition this unit every 10 minutes to avoid over watering. We have seen people leave these running for hours in one location which is very costly and unless you are starting new turf, can damage your lawn.

Automatic Sprinkler Systems:

Commonly Asked Questions:

Q. What are the Advantages of Owning an Automatic Sprinkler System?
A. Many people say convenience is the biggest advantage to an automatic system since they don't have to spend their time watering by hand or moving the hose around the yard. Others say extended plant life and lower water usage are the most important benefits. Still others believe a sprinkler system is one of the best investments that they can make in their home, since a home’s exterior appearance is a key factor in determining marketability and value. And guess what -- they are all right!

Q. Will an automatic sprinkler system use more water than I am currently using?
A. No. -- In fact, an automatic sprinkler system will conserve water. You will never have to worry about runoff from over watering or about wasting water if you forget to turn off the hose. Plus, with a moisture (Rain) sensor your system will know when it is raining and simply turn itself off when water is not needed.

Q. Does having a sprinkler system really save time?
A. Yes. -- You won't have to spend another minute of your valuable leisure time watering the lawn moving that portable sprinkler device all over the place. Your new system will do all the watering for you - even when you are away from home!

Q. Will an automatic sprinkler system water as well as I do when I water by hand?
A. An automatic sprinkler system will do a much better job, because a professionally designed system delivers exactly the right amount of water to specific lawn and garden areas.

Q. We generally get 40-50 inches of rainfall a year. Do we really need a sprinkler system?
A. If it rained at your house every three days -- the same exact amount each time -- you probably would not need a sprinkler system. But nature doesn't work that way, and the only way to ensure healthy, lush yard is to make certain that your lawn and plants receive a regularly timed and evenly measured amount of water. In the dry season when there is little or no rain, your yard can suffer damage after just a few days without water.

Q. Are there different sprinkler systems from which to choose?
A. Although every system should be tailored to meet one’s individual needs, a typical system is 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 via underground pipes) and sprinkler heads or drip tubing (which distribute water to specific areas). It is okay to mix components from different manufacturers as long as the company installing understands "PRECIPITATION RATE" calculations in order that they will work well together.
Q. How do I know what type of sprinkler system is best for me?
A. We come to your location and will design a system that will be custom tailored to fit the needs of your situation. Always work with a professional irrigation contractor who is knowledgeable about factors such as water source and pressure, soil type, planting materials, and weather conditions. A professional will take all of this into consideration when designing a system specific to the needs of your landscape.

Q. Can I save money by installing my own system?
A. No! In fact, it could cost you more money in the long run. As a professional irrigation contractor, we will design and install the most cost-effective and energy-efficient system possible. You can be confident that we will use the best equipment for the job and effectively schedule any maintenance required to keep your landscape in top shape.
We will pay special attention to important factors such as sprinkler patterns (it is important to overlap the patterns so that the outer edges receive sufficient water for healthy growth) and back-flow prevention (which is necessary to protect your drinking water). Because your contractor is familiar with local plumbing and electrical codes, you won't have to worry about costly pipe installation or wiring mistakes. He can do the job faster -- with less disruption to your existing landscape -- and will guarantee his work.

Q. Will I have difficulty operating my sprinkler system?
A. Your contractor will help you select the best controller for your needs, and he will program it with your customized watering schedule. Your contractor will also explain the system's operation to you. Then, if necessary, you will be able to easily change the watering schedule by simply following the easy instructions on the inside of the controller cabinet.

Q. How much will a good sprinkler system cost?
A. The price of a system depends upon many factors such as property size, type of landscaping, and special designs. But you can count on All Green to design a cost-effective system comprised of quality Rain Bird & Hunter products. Both Hunter and Rain Bird, stand behind all of its products and is serious about commitment to quality construction and after-sale service.
