Sprinkler System Design & Installation in Northern Virginia, Maryland & Washington, DC


Having problems delivering the right amount of water to your lawn?

When you don’t have a sprinkler system, your main option for getting extra H2O to the grass in your yard is standing outside with a hose early in the morning or late in the afternoon — which, let’s be honest, is a bothersome and inconvenient task.

Benefits of Installing a Sprinkler System for Your Yard

Northern Virginia homeowners understand the value landscaping can add to your home’s curb appeal. The benefits of installing a new or upgraded sprinkler system are enormous when it comes to your landscaping continuing to look its best. Here’s how:

  • Say “goodbye” to weeds & plant diseaseWith a proper sprinkler system and irrigation installation, you should see a drastic reduction in the number of weeds in your yard. Your ground sprinklers are designed to target specific areas in your landscaping. With your new system, you no longer have to worry about overwatering.
  • Save time & money. How much time have you spent watering your lawn, gardens, and flowerbeds? With a newly installed or upgraded sprinkler system, you can spend more time on the things that matter most. Sprinklers are designed to conserve water, using only what is needed and making every ounce count. All it takes to water your landscaping is a push of a button — it’s really that simple!
  • Preserve nutrients & soil structureIf you normally use a garden hose to water your lawn, gardens, and flower beds — you could be doing more harm than good. There is such a thing as too much water. When excess water seeps into the soil, the runoff will take the soil’s nutrients along for the ride. Your plant health depends on these essential nutrients. Without these nutrients, your plants may wither or develop issues like root disease.

What You Should Know About Installing Home Sprinkler Systems

Installing a lawn sprinkler might sound like a project you could complete over a couple of weekends, but it’s not as easy as a DIY video makes it out to be.  Consider this:

Digging Trenches

Trenches to accommodate water pipes must be at least 6 to 12 inches deep, depending on how cold the climate is. The trenches also have to be deep enough for the sprinkler heads to withdraw underground when not in use.

Selecting Pipes

Most sprinkler systems use PVC or polyethylene pipes to transport water to the different sprinkler heads. Depending on your system capacity, you typically need piping between 1/2 of an inch to 2 inches in diameter.

When you let the professionals of Wheat’s take the reins, rest assured that we use only the highest quality materials and use our expertise to ensure your home sprinkler system operates seamlessly and stands the test of time. Our pros will also come to your home at the end of the growing season to perform sprinkler winterization tasks to prevent damage to your system from freezing temperatures and ice.
