Tired of dragging hoses? Then you need an automatic
irrigation system from Leisure Landscapes.
Sprinkler heads and
piping are installed underground and connected directly to your
water meter. When it is time to water, the nozzles automatically
pop up and water the area and retract when they are done.
irrigation saves money and water at the same time. The system
meters the water out exactly. Each head is calibrated to release
a certain amount of water (from 1.5 to 2 gal per minute). With
our sophisticated RainBird controllers, we can put down exactly
the amount of water required in each area of the landscape.
And we can do it on any schedule that meets local requirements:
odd even days, or specific days of the week. We even have sensors
that automatically turn the system off in the event of sufficient
your hose running all night. Chose a water-wise irrigation system
from Leisure Landscapes and save.
call for a consultation with our irrigation designer, he will
come to your home and create a landscape plan. The head placement
is set for overlapping coverage in the turf areas while also
providing adequate coverage for the beds. Each circle represents
a RainBird R-50 closed-case rotor-driven head. They are equipped
with a RainCurtain nozzle for even distribution through its
25 radius arc. The square symbols represent a RainBird
1806 fountain-type head equipped with a square-pattern nozzle.
The controller is the RainBird ESP series and one of the most
reliable and easy to use in the industry. In fact it comes with
lighting protection and a 3-year warranty (as does our entire
system). Finally, we provide a MiniClik rain sensor that will
override system operation in case of rain that not only reduces
cost, it saves your reputation as not wasting water.
evaluate your watering needs to determine just the right type
of system for you.
jurisdictions, you have the choice of determining whether or
not you can install a second irrigation meter.
The advantage to the irrigation meter is that water usage on
that meter is not assessed a sewage processing charge. To receive
this savings, however, you will have to pay extra for the installation
of the meter. In some cases it is definitely worth it; in some
cases it is not. Leisure Landscapes can assist you in this decision
by running an analysis of your expected water usage to determine
the payback period for the second meter.
jurisdictions, an irrigation meter is required. In these areas,
Leisure Landscapes will concentrate on reducing your irrigation
system operating cost. First we ll determine your soil
type and calculate the in infiltration rate, or the rate at
which the ground will absorb water. We will then calculate the
optimum system run time to ensure that there is no wastage through
water run-off. In some cases, this will require the system cycle
twice in a day to ensure that there is sufficient ground water
for the plants. The result will be a run schedule that optimizes
getting sufficient water to the plants without any waste.
will be presented to you as an email attachment for your initial
review. When you receive the plan, consider if there are any
landscape changes (new beds, driveway pads, fencing, retaining
walls, patios or decks) and inform your designer about these
changes you are planning as these will change the head locations.
Expect to receive your complete proposal in the mail within
a week of your email plan.
will be installed using our invisible installation
technique. The heads are located on the property according to
the plan. The sod is cut by hand and each section is laid to
the side. The trenches are then excavated by hand and the dirt
placed on tarps for complete soil recovery and to protect the
lawn. Once all the rigid PVC piping* is installed, the dirt
and sod are replaced exactly where they came from and soaked
back to grade. Unlike mechanically-trenched methods that leave
obvious trenches or seeded-in repairs, the result is your lawn
is returned to its original condition.
installation methods use a vibratory plow that pulls flexible
tubing through the ground, subjecting it to wall rupture from
fatigue. Tubing systems have been banned for use in home construction.
Our system uses PVC piping rated at 215 psi. or better.
contractor connects the backflow preventer and certifies that
it is performing within specifications. The inspections division
is notified to conduct the plumbing inspection. The remainder
of the system is installed by the irrigation technicians, including
the electronic valves, the sprinkler heads, the electronic cable,
controller and rain sensor switch. As the lines are installed,
the dirt and the sod are replaced in the trench and watered
in. The spray pattern for the sprinkler heads is adjusted and
the controller is programmed. By the end of the third day, the
system is installed and the installation cuts are virtually
invisible. The owner is instructed on the operation of the system,
delivered the backflow instructions, As-built diagram, system
warranty and final bill.
system is installed, we provide ongoing support through our

you're on a trip. You glance at the weather report and a cold
front with freezing temperatures is heading for home. Then you
think, "Oh no, the irrigation system is still on..."
That repair bill
