New Turf in Carramar

We haven’t had a heap on over winter, but here’s a job I did last week removing old patchy turf and replacing it with brand new wintergreen. We began by removing the old grass and spreading 40ml of lawn mix all over the 90m to be turfed. With some care we were able to avoid all sprinklers so the retic fix up was minimal.   The old turf     The bobcat does his thing and spreads the lawn mix.     Screeded and prepped   New turf laid and retic all working well.

Winter – The Control Box Killer

Its very common over winter for control boxes to die, either because the door has been left open and rain has affected the circuitry or because of power spikes. So come Spring when its time to turn the retic back on you find yourself with a dead box. Unfortunately nothing can be done for boxes affected by a power spike, but the other situation of weather damage is completely avoidable. Always keep the door on your controller closed and you shouldn’t have any problems. We can always check for the tell tale burn signs of a power spike by removing […]

DIY Reticulation in Perth Soil

  If you plan on doing your own reticulation then consider hiring a trench digger. I used a trenching shovel for several years before purchasing my first trencher and I haven’t looked back since. You can’t use a trencher in every situation, but if you have larger areas then it really comes into its own. It will dig a straight trench between 120mm and 450mm deep and it will cut through sand dirt easily. Its great for established lawns where digging is a real chore, but I use it on every job now and it eases the workload as well […]

One Solenoid Stuck On

A common problem is for one station to remain on while the system goes thru its cycle. Almost invariably this is due to the solenoid on that station being faulty and being stuck open. Depending on what type of solenoid you have it is most likely going to be a faulty diaphragm. Usually it is best just to replace the entire solenoid and be sure that all will work well for a few years to come. If you wish to try and replace the diaphragm then remove the top half of the solenoid (you may be able to screw it […]
