Certified Irrigation Designers (CID’s)

Our experienced Certified Irrigation Designers carefully determine all aspects of the system design before we begin the installation. During the design process, we carefully:

  • Evaluate your water source and available water pressure.
  • Assess the unique watering requirements of your lawn, gardens, planters and shrubbery as well as slope, sun and shade exposures.
  • Select sprinkler head types and positioning to guarantee proper coverage.
  • Follow the laws of water hydraulics to calculate the appropriate number and types of watering zones.
  • Determine controller type for best water practices.
  • Suggest design elements and equipment options to enhance the longevity, efficiency and ease of use of the irrigation system.
Professional Lawn Irrigation System Installation

We insist on using the highest quality, professional-grade lawn irrigation products from leading manufacturers including Nelson and Toro. Spartan has its own Master Plumber on staff that is available for all the plumbing required for your new irrigation system. Our plumber can also perform backflow certifications that are regularly required by many municipalities. Whenever possible, we use a vibratory plow for "trenchless" pipe installation. Because vibratory plows do not excavate the soil, they are less destructive than standard trenchers on established turf. The existing sod heals quickly. After a few days of regular water and healing, there is little evidence that we were ever there.

We pay close attention to unseen details, making sure that we:
  • Safeguard the electrical components with special, waterproof wire connections.
  • Properly groom, compact and clean up any area of disturbed soil or turf.
  • Install sprinkler heads and valve boxes level to the grade.
  • Position sprinkler heads at a consistent distance from hardscape and bed edges.
  • Properly adjust all heads to your satisfaction.

Spartan Irrigation has a comprehensive insurance program including General Liability and Worker's Compensation on every employee. Insurance certificates are available upon request.

Follow Through

We promise to make sure you are comfortable with the use of your sprinkler system. At the end of the installation process we will teach you how to use your new irrigation controller as well as give you guidance with a suggested watering schedule. Spartan Irrigation is available year-round. If additional questions arise after the installation, we are always available to make sure you have continued enjoyment of your landscape irrigation system.
