Many homeowners choose to hire a contractor to install a sprinkler system, as constructing a DIY sprinkler system can be a challenging project for someone to complete on their own. However, with the right supplies and a little know-how, you can construct your own sprinkler system and save some money on labor costs.

Drip Irrigation

Drip Irrigation
Drip irrigation is the most efficient method of irrigating. While sprinkler systems are around 75-85% efficient, These irrigation systems typically are 90% or higher. What that means is much less wasted water!

For this reason drip irrigation is the preferred method of automatic watering systems Australia, as we are one of the driest continents, and water restrictions are a common part of our weather patterns.

Drip has other benefits. It uses the least amount of water if set up correctly and reduces disease problems associated with high levels of moisture on some plants.

It works by applying water slowly, directly to the soil. The high efficiency of drip irrigation results from two primary factors. The first is that the water soaks into the soil before it can evaporate or run off. The second is that the water is only applied where it is needed, (at the plant’s roots) rather than sprayed everywhere.

Smart Irrigation Controllers

Smart Irrigation Controllers which operate automatic watering systems use cutting edge technology.  They utilise weather data to plan and control water usage and watering times, they can be connected to the internet to provide real-time
data to the property owner.  Different zones can be set up for different types of plants with differing water requirements.  Fertilizers can be added in-line if required.

It sounds complicated, but it’s not.  The installation cost of a Smart system isn’t much different to the standard installation system.

Utilising this technology saves the property owner money in the long term and it saves water and enables your plants to thrive.  No longer do you have to return from holiday to find parched plants and dying lawns due to high temperatures.

Smart Controller

How does an Irrigation Smart Controller work?

It works by automatically turning your watering up and down according to weather triggers you input into the controller.  This is great for saving water and, if you input the right triggers, should also make your garden even healthier. After installation, our expert installers will check your garden from time to time to ensure everything is working well.

Smart irrigation controllers include an online access portal that you can access on your computer or via an app on your smart phone or tablet, allowing you to easily adjust your irrigation from anywhere in the world!  Some smart irrigation controllers also include flow meters and other smart technology that will alert you of any leaks in your irrigation system.

There are varying levels of ‘smartness’ in smart irrigation controllers that our expert installers will walk you through.  It’s up to you how much or how little you want to know and control.

A smart irrigation controller reads online weather data and responds via pre-set weather triggers. These triggers are set by our experts via an online web portal or app. Here are a couple of example triggers:

  • Turn off irrigation when it rains over 10mm
  • Decrease irrigation by 50% when it rains over 5mm
  • Increase irrigation if forecast temperature is over 35 degrees
  • Suspend watering if wind speeds over 50km/hr are forecast

What are the benefits of a smart irrigation controller?

As we all become busier in our daily lives, technology such as smart controllers can help intelligently automate what can sometimes be a confusing and complicated task. Rather than adjusting our irrigation on a weekly, fortnightly, bi-annual or just annual basis, smart controllers will automatically adjust every day based on localised weather information (primarily rainfall, temperature, wind and evaporation).  This will reduce water use by at least 20% which will save you money!

Whilst it is easy to see the effects of under-watering, it is often not so easy to see the effects of over-watering.  Yet the negative effects can be just as detrimental to your garden with shallow rooted plants and the continual run-off means wasted water and nutrients down the drain.

Smart controllers have additional capabilities such as flow monitoring, zone shutdown and email/SMS alerts for leaks and broken pipes (great for those night time irrigation faults that can go unnoticed). There are also faulty wiring alerts for valve malfunctions which are a common cause of hard to find leaks within irrigation systems.

Call up today if you want to convert your manual system to using a Smart Controller or just want to install a new irrigation system.

Why install a garden irrigation system?

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Why install a garden irrigation system? Blog

The secret to any successful garden is to find the right balance of sunlight, fertilisation, and water.  But when it comes to your lawn, the process of the watering can be time-consuming and ineffective if done incorrectly. A garden irrigation system takes the guesswork out of watering. However, before you invest in one for your property – let’s look at the pros and cons.

Advantages of an Automatic Garden Irrigation System

Are sprinkler systems worth it? Here are some of the benefits.

Time Savings blog

Hand watering or using a manual hose sprinkler to water your lawn and garden requires a significant investment of your time. The ideal time to water your garden is between 4am and 10am.  That makes it a challenge for those with larger properties or who have limited hours of availability. With an automatic irrigation system, you can set it to automatically stop and start within your desired time frame for maximum effectiveness and savings.

Water where it’s needed blog

A professionally designed automatic irrigation system can be carefully positioned to direct the water by location, timing and need, instead of allowing runoff to paths, driveways or just to pool in unwanted areas.

Aesthetics blog

Eliminate unsightly hoses and sprinklers with sprinkler heads that are only visible when in use. Drip irrigation is another efficient watering solution that is often hidden and out of sight.

The health of your plants blog

Depending on the climate and soil conditions in your area, your lawn will likely require 30 to 60 minutes of watering once or twice a week. Too much or too little water can result in an unhealthy plant, it can cause mould and fungus.  With a properly scheduled automatic irrigation system, you can rest easy knowing your plants will receive the perfect amount of water with little to no waste.

Freedom to take time away

With an automatic irrigation system, you are free to sleep in, go on holiday, or simply take the day off without worrying about watering your plants.

Any Size of Property

This type of system can be customised to suit any size of the property, unlike manual sprinklers which have a limited range of motion.


An automatic irrigation system will reduce the amount of water you use to water your lawn and garden. Studies have shown that as much as 7% of runoff can occur from poor use of residential water.

Stronger Plants during Drought
With an automatic irrigation system you can train your plants to thrive on minimal amounts of water.  Plants with greater or less requirement for water can be accommodated.  During water restrictions, your plants will survive.

Disadvantages of an Automatic Irrigation System

It’s important to consider all aspects of these systems, including any drawbacks before you invest. Disadvantages include:


System monitoring is required to ensure optimal performance, and seasonal maintenance will need to be performed each spring and autumn to prevent damage and water leakage.


Sprinkler heads may become damaged, drippers can clog and system components can wear or malfunction over time.


Underground pests can wreak havoc on your irrigation system, damaging water lines and creating a huge mess or broken components. Regular checks keep damage to a minimum.


Wind can reduce the effectiveness of your automatic irrigation system by blowing the water in an unintended direction, resulting in areas that receive too much or too little water.  Our experts can adjust your system to limit this problem.
