Water Management for Sustainable Irrigation Systems.
Garden Sprinkler Systems
Lawns and gardens in Northern New Jersey have very different needs when it comes to watering. Properly designed garden systems will ultimately protect your living investment.
Rotary sprinkler heads are used exclusively for lawn areas, but garden sprinkler systems must carefully address the individual requirements of the variety of plants that are found in gardens and shrub beds.
Shrub beds are most often designed with spray heads. Spray heads can be installed with nozzles of varied heights depending upon the shrub growth, with adjustments of a full circle, half circle or quarter circle spray pattern. As plants grow, the heads can be placed on risers that allow the water to reach areas they otherwise couldn’t when installed in the ground.
Garden sprinkler systems may use either spray heads or drip irrigation. Micro-Drip Irrigation System is especially suited for rose gardens, flowerbeds and planter boxes, since the gentle watering is easier on delicate blooms and foliage. It is also ideal for privacy plantings as a more efficient and economical way of distributing water than with traditional spray heads.
Irrigation Systems Design
Expert irrigation system design is most important. Even with the best quality parts and expert installation, a poorly designed sprinkler system will not water efficiently or protect your landscape.
When we design sprinkler systems, we consider a number of important variables. Lawn areas have different watering requirements than flower and shrub beds. Shady areas need far less water than sunny ones. Trees take a tremendous amount of water and will draw from your lawn and bed areas if they need it. Many different types of sprinkler heads can be selected to satisfy a variety of watering needs.
The water pressure on your property will also affect the design of your lawn irrigation system. It will determine how many sprinkler heads can be put on each zone, and in turn, how many zones your property will need to properly water everything.
The finishing touch on your new sprinkler design is an easy-to-use timer that will make operating the system a snap. A rain sensor will be installed to prevent the system from watering after it has rained. Well-designed systems allow you to enjoy years of convenient and efficient watering.
We have Nationally Certified Designers on staff to ensure that all your landscape watering requirements are met. Horizon Landscape’s professional irrigation designers will be happy to assess all of your watering needs and create the perfect garden sprinkler system for your home.

Irrigation System Installation
We often choose the best parts from each manufacturer in order to install the best possible quality sprinkler system.
Your site conditions also play a role in which manufacturer’s component we use. The end result is an efficient, well-constructed sprinkler system that will function with precision for many years.
A new sprinkler system consists of sprinkler heads, valves, a backflow preventer, a timer, wiring and pipe. The pipe is put into the ground with a pipe-pulling machine. Instead of digging unsightly trenches, this machine leaves only a narrow trail in the lawn which usually grows back completely in 1 to 3 weeks, depending on the weather. Some trails may take longer to disappear when the weather is hot as the grass does not grow as quickly.
Typically, we install the timer in the garage for convenience, and we install all heads and valves as designed. When completed, the system is thoroughly tested and adjusted for accuracy.
