Installation

Many factors contribute to a properly installed sprinkler installation. Only experienced installers using appropriate equipment can ensure a quality system. Wilson Irrigation maintains the highest quality technicians to ensure a successful project.

Personnel

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

Wilson's foremen are some of the most experienced in the Austin area. Experienced foremen have been a key to high quality, consistent installations. All of the Wilson's foremen have been promoted from within the company and consistently promote the company's philosophy of quality first. 

Many crew members are employed seasonally and have been with the company for 5 to 10 years. 

In addition to high quality leadership at the crew level, we always perform a final check of your new sprinkler system prior to receiving payment for the job. 

If you are not satisfied with the job, we will make modifications needed as quickly as possible.

Selection of Sprinkler Type

Choosing the proper type of sprinkler for your landscape is important because each type of sprinkler (or drip system) has different characteristics. Spray heads perform well in smaller areas whereas rotary heads are generally more efficient in areas exceeding 30 feet in width and length. Bubblers and low trajectory spray heads should be used where plants have low tolerance for water contact above ground level. The use of low volume (drip irrigation) is appropriate in certain landscape areas; however, low volume systems typically require more monitoring and maintenance than other types of irrigation.  [Wilson Irrigation]

Future building or landscape plans should also be considered when selecting the sprinkler type to be used. Costs associated with modifying the sprinkler system due to landscape or building changes can often be minimized when the sprinkler system is properly planned to accommodate your future objectives. 

Improper selection of the type of sprinkler can lead to:

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

As you can see, Quality is not just a function of the equipment used but is attributable to the proper selection of equipment, layout of the system and proper installation. 

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