Top 6 Reasons to Hire a Professional to Install an Irrigation System


Your guest’s first impression of your home includes your entire front landscape. The heart of that landscape is your irrigation system. It provides the necessary hydration to maintain your yard and flowerbed’s appearance and health. Installation can be costly and problematic if you choose to do it yourself. Here are the top 6 reasons to hire a professional to install an irrigation system to maintain your landscape.


  1. Experience

If you choose to do the installation yourself, chances are your training comes from a YouTube video. An installation specialist has the essential experience should an unexpected issue arise.

  1. Design

A professional installer will ensure that your system is designed in such a way that it will benefit your foliage and yard and not just “point and shoot” at unnecessary areas.

  1. Product Assurance

Having an irrigation or sprinkler system installed by a professional will provide you with products that are usually the best of the best. The tried and true products that provide the best features and performance are often a trade secret.

  1. Warranty

Warranties are often void if they are not installed by a professional. In addition to having a warranty on a product, an installation professional will often provide a warranty on their service should an issue arise during a specified timeframe after installation.

  1. Automation

Irrigation and sprinkler system timers can often be complex. Add in a water restriction for your location that causes you to completely turn off your system and you may run into an even larger problem. An irrigation or sprinkler specialist can provide you with the necessary training for your specific system as well as help you to set it up properly based on your landscape.

  1. Draining for Winter

Should water be left in your system during a deep winter freeze, the pipes within your system could crack or even burst. A professional installer can be scheduled to come and winterize your system by blowing out the excess water left in your system with equipment that the average homeowner does not possess.


Failed to have your system winterized before the freeze? Do you have an old or outdated system? The most effective way of making sure that your irrigation equipment is performing to the best of its abilities is to contact Keane Landscaping for a consultation of your system.
