Designing a Sprinkler System Layout

So you’ve decided to get a sprinkler system for your yard? You’re finally tired of trying to remember how much and when to water the gardens and lawn to keep them looking healthy and lush? You’ve made the right choice. If you decided this would be a DIY project you’d tackle, you may be wondering where to start.

Before you order sprinkler system supplies, you’ll need a plan. Pull out a pen and paper, and let’s get started.

Map a Plan

Consider this your own novice blueprint on the how and what for laying out our new sprinkler system. You don’t need to be perfect but you should know your property size in square inches as well as any permits or building codes in your local area. Once you have a visual map of the square footage of your lawn, you can start to plan out exactly where you’ll add the sprinkler heads and nozzles in the ground as well as where piping and valves will be located. Be sure on the day you begin to dig trenches that all water is turned off and any underground wiring is noted to avoid accidents.

Buy Sprinkler System Supplies

Once you have a plan in place, you’ll need to order supplies. Things like sprinkler hoses, nozzles heads and even clamps are all going to be necessary components of the sprinkler system. In addition you’ll need measuring tape as well as other tools and cutters to properly install sprinkler system. If you plan to add a timer to your sprinkler system you’ll also need wiring and a sprinkler timer to set up the automated system.

Luckily we have access to the wealth of information and instructional videos online today that make visual step-by-step guides easy to find. Once you have a plan and your supplies, be sure to spend some time researching how to accurately layout and install your sprinkler system.
