While Florida’s warm, sunny environment is the reason so many people choose to live here, it poses some particularly difficult challenges to maintaining lush, beautiful grass and landscapes. The large commercial properties and master-plan communities we serve often face complex irrigation requirements. Different ecosystems, intense heat, and extended dry conditions coupled with diverse landscapes often require unique irrigation systems and close management.
At Landcare Group we understand these challenges better than most. We currently manage commercial irrigation systems for 1000’s of acres across Northeast and Central Florida’s most beautiful properties. And this experience has given us the ability to effectively install, and manage most any size commercial irrigation requirement.
The size and scope of some of our larger irrigation system installations might appear overwhelming to some. But with the right equipment, the best and most reliable irrigation system components and years of first hand experience, it’s simply a matter of time.
While we do install irrigation systems in existing large scale properties, most of our installation projects are completed during the development of the community or property. This allows for the necessary trenching and use of heavy equipment without the concern for damage to existing turf and landscaping.
After all underground utilities have been located, trenching begins with high volume trench equipment. PVC lines are run according to the project plans and all control stations, electric valves and a variety of different sprinkler heads are installed. As the zones are completed, sprinkler heads are adjusted for maximum efficiency. All controls and timers are also tested to assure that the systems is operating properly.
Irrigation System Maintenance
As a part of our ongoing maintenance of your property’s landscapes, we regularly inspect your irrigation systems. We test controls, inspect sprinkler heads, and make any adjustments that may be needed to assure that sprinklers are irrigating your lawns and landscapes and not sidewalks and streets. If any components or sprinkler heads are not functioning properly, they are repaired or replaced.
Irrigation System Management
Through the seasons, and in cases where shrubs or flowers have been replaced or updated, it may be necessary to adjust the irrigation schedules for a particular zone. Zone irrigation adjustments may also be needed if we detect the need for less or more irrigation. These and other steps are all part of the ongoing irrigation system management provided by Landcare Group to keep your properties beautiful year round.
