service to name just a few. Each property is carefully reviewed, measured, and designed specifically for you and your
Turf Irrigation uses a specific set of irrigation design criteria established
by the National Irrigation Association.* Once a Turf Irrigation system design is created then your sprinkler system
will be quoted. A quote from Turf Irrigation should be looked at as a 20 year investment since 20
years is approximately the life span of a quality installed sprinkler system.
How much does it cost to maintain a sprinkler system?Will there be damage to my lawn?
cost is based on the size and complexity of the system. A new system always costs less to maintain
than an older system. This is due to the fact that fewer repairs are required on a new system.

there will be some minimal disturbance to your lawn. The extent depends upon: how hard the ground is, the type of
lawn you have, the volume of tree roots, and the time of year.
Irrigation guarantees to rake and tamp the area to restore it to its natural state, if not better, as the turf is enriched
through regular watering.
Will my water bill increase?
Compared to watering with hoses the savings are considerable. However, this depends on several factors including:
prior water usage
2) The landscape's water requirements. [Some types of plants
require more than others]
4) Controller adjustment
5) Sprinkler maintenance
6) Rain sensor
Personal usage variation - Since most clients had
been using very little or no water for their lawn prior to installing an irrigation system, usually most may
notice some increase in their water usage.
controls - Turf Irrigation of NJ uses water-conserving controls such as rain sensors, and
programmable controllers on all new systems and can modify or adapt existing systems with these controls.
Bear in mind that with Turf Irrigation
systems water is being applied in the most efficient and consistent manner.
Compared to watering with hoses the savings advantages are considerable.
Do I need to hire Turf Irrigation of NJ to turn on my sprinkler system?
You may elect to handle this task yourself but sometimes the small savings do not cover the savings of time/water
waste and frustration.
Spring start-ups- All sprinkler
systems need to be turned-on as early as possible in the spring to ensure that they're working properly for the summer. These start-ups usually require:
1) the water source to be activated, 2) pump primed, 3) a thorough examination of all the components, 4)
adjustments, 5) repairs if necessary, and 6) reprogramming the controller.
Preventing damage-Typically as a system ages the requirement for spring start-up increases. Leaks,
broken sprinkler heads, and poor adjustment could lead to higher than normal water bills, damaged property, or an unhealthy
landscape. In order to prevent damage & repair untimely costs many of our clients choose to have Turf Irrigation
maintain their systems.
Do I need to
winterize my irrigation system?
Absolutely. Failure to winterize
your sprinkler system can lead to extensive damage on a large scale:
1) Water left in sprinkler equipment can freeze and split open sprinkler components. Once the damage is done, costly
repairs will be required to bring the system back to life.
2) In a very cold winter
the entire system could be damaged beyond reasonable repair.
Turf Irrigation uses
high volume, low pressure, and air compressors to purge all irrigation equipment of water. This ensures that your
system will last for many years.
