Sprinkler and irrigation systems can be very simple to quite complex depending on your property and the overall landscape design. They can include various sprinkler heads, pop up valves as well as drip irrigation. Turf irrigation systems will be very different from a system that includes a variety of shrubs, grasses, trees and rock areas.
Your entire system will be divided into zones and should be connected to one or more timers. The sprinkler timer controls how long each zone is watered and at what time of day. The times can be adjusted to accommodate seasonal weather changes or unique weather such as large amounts of rain or drought conditions.
Unfortunately many sprinklers, as installed by the developer, are not set up to best cover your turf and shrubbery needs. Even if they were sufficient in the beginning, as your landscape grows, matures, and is modified, the watering needs will change.
