Installation

Many factors contribute to a properly installed irrigation system installation. Only experienced installers using the appropriate equipment can ensure the installation of a quality system. We employ the highest quality installers and technicians to ensure a successful project.

Personnel

Wilson Irrigation has four licensed irrigators and four licensed irrigation technicians on staff to serve your needs and to ensure quality work. 

Our foremen are some of the most experienced in the Austin area. Experience is a key factor in our consistently high-quality installations. Our foremen are promoted from within the company and their work exemplifies our philosophy of quality first. 

Many of our seasonally employed crew members have been with Wilson Irrigation for more than ten years.

In addition to high-quality leadership and oversight at the crew level, we always perform a final check of each installation prior to receiving payment for the work performed.

If you are not satisfied with our installation, we will perform the modifications needed as quickly as possible.

Selection of Sprinkler Type

Choosing the right components for your landscape is important because each irrigation system component has different characteristics. Spray heads perform well in smaller areas whereas rotary heads are usually more efficient in areas exceeding 30 feet in width and length. Bubbler heads and low trajectory spray heads should be used in areas where plants have a low tolerance for water contact above ground level. The use of low volume drip irrigation is appropriate in specific landscape areas; however, low volume systems usually require more monitoring and maintenance than other types of systems.

Future construction and landscape plans should be considered when selecting irrigation components. Costs associated with modifying an irrigation system due to landscape or construction changes are minimized when the installation of an irrigation system is planned correctly with your future objectives in mind.

Improper selection of irrigation components can lead to:

  • Improper watering of specific plant types (which can cause damage to the plants)
  • Waste of water
  • Extensive modifications in the future due to landscape or construction changes (e.g., deck additions, pools, additional beds)

As you can see, quality is not simply a matter of the equipment used; it is achieved through the proper selection of equipment, the layout of the system, and proper installation. 

We take all of these factors into consideration when installing your sprinkler system.
