I talked with a client yesterday about doing some landscaping at his lakeside home. He wants quite a bit of "low maintenance" plantings, some walkways and other projects. It should make for a nice project. He is also interested in some sort of irrigation system. I work in a small community with no local companies that provide irrigation installation services. In fact, this type of work isn't in high demand here. The property has some very basic irrigation needs, and I'm thinking that I could probably tackle the project myself, but I'm not sure where to get started. Basically, his landscape will be some plantings around the foundation of his house, a strip of lawn, ranging from 20' to 30', then a band of plantings around the lake edge then water. I am thinking that the plantings around the house could be dealt with by using soaker hose on a timer, cheap and easy to install, no maintenance for the client. That leaves the lawn and shore front plantings. As I said, the property is located on the lake so water usage isn't an issue, nor is run-off for that matter. It seems that a fairly simple system could be used to keep the lawn irrigated? Any thoughts on where to get started in reasearching my options, any thoughts from you on how my plan sounds?
