Maintaining a green and healthy lawn requires consistency and dedication to watering routines. For homeowners in West Georgia and eastern Alabama, an irrigation system may seem like an expensive luxury, however it is an investment that pays off in the long term by reducing the cost of water bills, conserving water, and providing an automatic and consistent irrigation schedule. In this blog post, we will take an in-depth look at the various factors that influence the cost of installing an irrigation system.
One of the primary factors that determine the cost of an irrigation system is the size of your lawn and landscape. Each sprinkler zone is designed to cover a specific area; therefore, the larger your property, the more you will pay.
System Components and Complexity
Irrigation systems consist of various components, including piping, sprinkler heads, controllers, valves, and sensors. The cost of your irrigation system will depend on the type of components selected, the brand of the system, and the installation complexity. More complex systems that require hand trenching or that feature intricate designs may require additional installation costs.
The soil conditions of the worksite will influence the price of installation. Yards with hard or rocky soil may take longer or put more wear on trenching equipment to install the system, resulting in additional labor costs.
Maintenance and repair costs are an additional consideration that should also be factored into the overall cost of the irrigation system. Regular maintenance will extend the life of the system and reduce repair costs by seeing potential issues before they become worse.
So How Much Does it All Cost?
The prices can vary immensely because each property is unique but a solid ballpark range for automatic sprinkler installation on a residential property with a typical design will cost between $2,500 – $3,500 for a standard 4-5 zone system. As the size of the system increases the price will increase as well. Add-ons such as WiFi equipped controllers and other features can also increase the price.
