Winter is an ideal time to install an irrigation system. The ground is softer so a better job can be done with less damage to the lawn. Spring growth will hide any marks on the lawn created when the pipes were installed and the system will be ready to use when the hotter drier months come along. Freeman Irrigation specialise in installing and maintaining irrigation systems. They use top quality Toro and Hunter commercial grade components, pipes and fittings. These meet industry standards, are more reliable and have a longer life. Freeman Irrigation install garden drip lines with built-in timers and pop-up irrigation systems, fitted before laying a lawn or into existing lawns using a Mole plough. This cuts a fine channel in the grass, pulling the hose through in a no-mess operation that does not rip the grass up. They can fit separate control stations and timers for the garden and lawn, allowing irrigation to be turned off for part of the garden; an ideal option when there is a lawn watering ban on. Now is also a good time for irrigation system maintenance and servicing so grass or soil that is blocking a jet is removed, leaks or problems such as water pooling are sorted and the system is functioning correctly so it comes on when, and for as long as required. “Irrigation systems should be checked annually to ensure they operate efficiently and as they’re meant to,” explains Phil Hudson, owner of Freeman Irrigation. His team can service your existing irrigation system, repairing any problems, many of which take just one or two hours to fix. The Mole plough cuts a fine channel in the grass. Freeman Irrigation uses top grade components. Freeman Irrigation offers special rates for the installation of an irrigation system over winter.
