Measure Your Property
When you use a sprinkler to water the lawn and garden you have at home, there’s no need to make any measurements because one or two sprinklers is usually all you need. However, when you need to water larger areas like your business property, it will take more than one or two sprinklers to get the job done.
Before you install a new sprinkler system, the first thing you need to do is take accurate measurements of the areas you plan to water. Each sprinkler system will have a different range that it can reach with water, and measuring your space will allow you to determine how many sprinklers you will need, as well as where to place them based on their range of hydration.
In addition to measuring your property, you will also need to create a layout of where you want your sprinklers to go. The best way to do this is to create hydrozones. When you create your hydrozones, you will need to know a few things about your property, as well as the types of plants that you need to water. First, you will need to determine the size and shape of your property, which you can do during the measurement phase. You will also need to know what type of plants you have on your property, the type of soil they are planted in, and the ratio of sunlight and water they need to survive.
Using this information, you will create hydrozones of your property. These hydrozones consist of plants that are similar in nature — they all require the same sunlight, soil type, and amount of water to thrive. Creating hydrozones will come in handy when you eventually have to plan out your watering schedule, in addition to helping you determine the number of sprinklers you will need overall.
