Here at Christies Landscapes we supply and expertly install irrigation systems into homes and businesses throughout Canberra. Irrigation systems are a necessity for most landscapes and gardens throughout Australia. Installing an irrigation and reticulation system is the key to creating a low-maintenance landscape.
An irrigation and reticulation system is an underground piping system which feeds water into the garden. The system is responsible for automatically feeding water throughout the network of pipes to nourish the plants and lawn. An automated reticulation system is the perfect way to evenly and efficiently distribute water and nutrition to your plants. Hand watering can be sufficient, however, it doesn’t distribute the water to the required areas evenly. Hand watering often uses more water than is needed which can cause increased watering bills, patchy grass and sudden dying of plants due to loss of nutrition.
Benefits Of An Irrigation System
Automated – An irrigation or reticulation system is automated making it easy to use. With such minimal human interaction, it is nearly impossible to forget watering your plants with an automated system.
Waterwise – An automated watering system uses sensors to detect moisture in the area. This means that the water is evenly distributed across the whole area. An even distribution means that you are not wasting water on areas that are already receiving adequate amounts of water.
Cost effective -By saving on excess water consumption we are limiting the amount being spent on water bills. This saves on your overall household expenses.
Reliable – An automated watering system is extremely reliable. Once it has been adjusted and set based on your watering specifications you won’t need to interfere with it again unless you need to make changes. This means that you won’t have to worry about the system again unless essential.
Neat and tidy – As most reticulation systems are hidden underground they are also very neat and tidy. The colour of the hoses and the sprinklers used in your system will be dark so will blend in with the surroundings.
Soil moisture sensors – Soil moisture sensors are used in reticulation systems to detect the amount of moisture found in the soil. This allows the system to evenly distribute the water to the parts of the soil that still require more water.
Evenly delivered – Unlike hand watering, irrigation systems are designed to evenly distribute the water to all parts of the area that require it. Hand-watering delivers uneven results and won’t provide the same coverage that an irrigation system will.
Affordable – Getting a professionally installed irrigation system is more affordable than you may think. When you factor in the savings that you will see from automated watering then the initial outlay costs will be more than covered throughout the life of your product.
Is My Garden Area Suitable For A Reticulation System?
Most garden areas will be suitable to incorporate reticulation. Installing reticulation involves minimal invasion and we can keep your garden intact. We always recommend installing reticulation into a newly built garden area prior to laying the lawn and planting flowers or plants. We can easily assess your landscape to see if a reticulation system is right for you.

How Often Will I Need To Be Watering My Garden?
This depends on a number of things. You need to consider your watering days and adjust the system to suit those days. We can also show you how to do this with your new system. You should also consider the size of the area and the requirements of your plants, flowers and lawn.
Will I Still Have To Hand Water If I Install An Irrigation System?
Hand-watering should not be necessary once you have an automated reticulation system installed. You may choose to hand-water in addition to your automated watering schedule however it isn’t necessary. If you find that your foliage is not receiving enough water, then you can increase your watering times to stay on for a longer period of time instead of having to manually water.
