Irrigation System Design

A quality irrigation system not only saves you time and money but adds value to the biggest investment of your life – your home.

At Hills Irrigation, we are more than happy to design one of the most important money-saving and property enhancing systems for you – a quality, fully automatic irrigation system.

We can help you if you are just a beginner and would like to install a system for the very first time. You can come in-store or email us your plan. Just send through the plans, flow rate, tap and power location and any other relevant information and we will get in contact with you. Please note only a parts list will be sent, we will require a deposit before sending through a design. Please note some bulky items such as pipe we cannot ship.

Call us on (02) 9659 9659 or email us at today.

Keep in mind, however, that there is more to a sprinkler system than just sprinklers.  System design and installation are critical factors that will affect your system’s performance and longevity. Other things to consider include accurate plans and measurements, a Bucket Test, and type of irrigation you intend to install.

A Bucket test is a Time Taken to Fill Bucket which will give you your flow rate. Let us know the size of the bucket and how long it took to fill, this will allow us to work out the number of sprinklers you can place on a line and in turn amount of stations you need

Irrigation types include:

Pop up Sprinkler Irrigation

These sprinklers pop up from the turf and have an adjustable spray of water over the lawns from any angle. Mostly used in turf and some garden scenarios, this system efficiently applies water and facilitates ease of installation, fault diagnosis and ongoing maintenance.

Drip Irrigation

This can be installed on the ground in gardens under mulch and is the ideal product for irrigating your gardens by maintaining a constant moisture level.

Spray and Micro-spray Irrigation

This system is perfect for pot plants, new and existing garden areas, and mini nurseries as well as some vertical gardens. This system is very cost-effective in its installation and leaving the garden looking fresh, as the sprinklers spray water over the garden in a variety of radius and heights.

If you are not sure where to start, several of our quality irrigation suppliers have great starting guides to give you an idea of where to start or what you may need, some of these include:
