Installation and start-up in the South Downs national Park
At TCR we’re never far away from some the country’s most beautiful homes and gardens, and our latest install is no exception. Set in the South Downs National Park in Sussex, surrounded by farmland and woodland our engineers have been busy putting the final touches to an irrigation system to large lawns and multiple flower beds, fed from an existing borehole on the property.
The lawn has been fitted with 30 RainBird 5004 pop-up sprinklers and 40 Hunter MP Rotators for an even application. With the lawn recently laid, a mole plough was used to cause as little disruption whilst laying the pipe, this method allows for a clean and neat finish to the lawn.
The multiple beds consist of a combination of drip lines and micro sprays, accounting for larger shrubs and delicate plants. Due to the multiple areas of the garden requiring varying amounts of water application a Hunter Pro HC controller was install to manage each area efficiently and wirelessly, whilst allowing for future expansion of the system.
The system was installed by our engineers at the end of February, due to the winter weather still rolling in the start-up of all the stations was delayed until the spring. With warm weather now finally arriving our engineer has return to start-up all 14 stations ready for the warmer months ahead.
