Transforming a Verge

When you live opposite a school your front verge gets parked on more than most, but now that the council have stopped verge parking in the street it was time to revamp that verge that was looking pretty dodgy. It was pretty ugly… Then the bobcat came in Old lawn and weeds removed and 40mm of good quality soil spread. The next day I came in and repaired and reconfigured the reticulation using MP rotators to get the coverage needed. And then the Sir Walter Buffalo went down. The different looking lawn sections are just the ‘grain’ of the lawn […]

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 […]

What is the Best Type of Sprinkler?

A lot of people ask me what the best sprinklers are, and the answer is that it depends on the job it needs to do. Here are some pros and cons of various types of sprinklers: Standard Toro/Rainbird pop-ups:  are good sprinklers in that distribute a lot of water in a short space of time and they are cheap and easy to replace. If well maintained the sprinkler body and seals can easily last 5 years. Their negative is that their spray can mist and get easily blown by the wind. Gear Drives – Gear drives are tough and are generally used […]

Converting From Mains Retic to a Bore?

Easy to do! If you have recently moved and are wondering if this is a worthwhile option then my tip is to do it straight away. After 5 years in our last home we began debating the merits of a bore, but knowing we may not stay much longer than another year or two we decided against it. But when we moved to Yanchep, to a home with no retic it was the first thing on the agenda. And there have been no regrets. With a bore you get: – ‘free’ water in the sense that it is not part […]

My Controller Looks Like Its Working But Nothing is Coming on

So you set your controller running and everything looks right on the digital panel, but there is no water?… What’s going on?… Well if you are running your retic off the mains then its most likely that there is a problem with your master solenoid. If it isn’t working then you won’t get any water to the different stations. You can test if this is the issue by locating it, turning it on manually (usually you need to turn the coil a quarter turn anti-clockwise) and then running the system as usual. If everything works with the master valve open […]
