If getting a sprinkler system installed on a property were as easy as just putting the thing in the ground and letting the water do its thing, there wouldn’t be a reason for an irrigation company like us to exist. The fact of the matter is that not every property is ready for an irrigation system.
One of the most common questions people have when getting irrigation systems installed for their homes is whether they need an industrial or residential system in order to keep their grass healthy. While it might seem pretty self-explanatory, the issue becomes a bit more complicated when dealing with communities like the East End of Long Island, where the property sizes become significantly larger.

If you were to ask somebody “What’s the most common reason for dry or dying grass?” most would probably guess that it’s either a faulty or inadequate sprinkler system that isn’t giving a lawn the water that it needs to survive. It’s the most obvious reason, but it’s not necessarily the correct one. The primary reason lawns go brown is actually owner negligence.
With warm summer nights just around the corner, there’s no reason you should only get to enjoy a beautiful backyard for half of the day. And for the modern home, a simple light on the back porch doesn’t do the whole job anymore.
Proper sprinkler system maintenance keeps your lawn or fire sprinkler system in top condition. However, maintaining these systems is easier said than done. They are
