Why Irrigate


Your quickest route to a thick, healthy lawn and landscape is keeping your lawn watered. Relying completely on natural rainfall to supply regular water is inconsistent. This is where irrigation systems can be the answer. In most residential and commercial locations, a more constant source of water may be required, and an irrigation system might be what you need. A properly installed and maintained underground sprinkler system conserves water by directing it exactly where and when it’s needed. Save time AND save money on your monthly water bill with an irrigation system by PGC.

Growing emphasis on water conservation is making it more important than ever to use the most suitable irrigation system for lawns and gardens. While above-ground spray systems have been the traditional choice for water application, in-ground applications like drip irrigation are gaining in popularity because of the unique cost and water conservation advantages these systems offer.

In-ground Irrigation


An in-ground irrigation system disperses water through sprinklers attached to risers connected to a network of underground pipes that run throughout your lawn. It can also include a drip system that disperses water through emitters directly to plants' root zones in a slow, precise application, producing deeper root growth and more abundant foliage for garden favorites like perennials, annuals, shrubs, and ground covers. When properly designed, drip irrigation maintains an optimum balance of water and air in the root zone while reducing water wasted due to the sun and wind.

Drip irrigation


Drip irrigation offers many money- and time-saving benefits. Delivering water directly to plant roots saves you money by reducing up to 70% in water waste from evaporation and run-off. It saves you time by replacing hand watering, and reduces yard maintenance by delivering water directly to plants, reducing weed growth.

Above-ground Irrigation


Above-ground irrigation systems are most effective for watering small or large open areas like lawns. They distribute water quickly over a large area by throwing water through the air using stationary, oscillating or rotating spray heads arranged at regular intervals to apply water in a uniform manner. Above-ground irrigation systems consist of hoses, hose bibbs, sprinklers, and hose tap timers.
