In 2007 we acquired and successfully integrated Garden Systems into the ECP Group portfolio with the aim of offering our clients a full range of services from sinking a new well, drilling a new borehole, to the reinstatement of an existing private water supply, installation of suitable pumping and water treatment equipment and the design of a fully automated irrigation system.
If you are uncertain of which equipment you require for your garden irrigation, then simply send us a plan of your garden or area to be irrigated and we will work out your requirements, it really could not be any easier. It does not have to be an elaborate plan; a simple hand drawn sketch will suffice showing dimensions and areas to be irrigated. Remember to highlight where the incoming mains is and the nearest electrical sockets. n most instances a site visit will be required, and we will arrange for our landscaper to visit and advise what can be achieved.
It is important to establish the water pressure on site ensuring that it is neither too high nor too low for the irrigation system to function correctly. We can then supply the necessary fittings to either decrease or increase the water pressure. Please contact us for further advice should you run into any problems.
We have also produced a variety of garden irrigation assembly plans which you may find useful when installing your irrigation system.
We offer a variety of irrigation solutions:
Drip for Beds, Borders and Containers – a simple and efficient method of effectively watering your shrubs, beds, borders and containers. No waste of water, low humidity, fewer weeds and incredibly discrete. Drip irrigation provides an effective way of targeting water to where it is required with fixed and adjustable output drippers. Drip watering uses the soils ability to distribute water by capillary action; the distance it travels will depend on the soil type. For a majority of installations this will be 500mm either side of the drip pipe, so the lines need to be spaced 1m apart; under turf spacing should be 500mm apart.
We are agents for the genuine porous Leaky Pipe, the simplest choice for drip irrigation. Made from recycled rubber it is totally porous and has no concentrated water spots. It is robust, long lasting and has an even output. It requires no drippers or emitters so is simple and quick to install. Ensure that it is installed buried just below the soil surface, or covered with a mulch; leaving it uncovered and open to the elements will destroy the surface and structure of the Leaky Pipe.
Pop Up Sprinklers – install and forget. Garden sprinklers are mainly for large lawn areas; however, borders can also be incorporated. Be amazed as from nowhere the sprinklers appear and water the lawn. They are far more efficient than movable sprinklers and ideal for automatic systems. For a limited garden water supply, the garden will have to be divided into zones, which come on sequentially making certain that all areas are covered.
Sprinklers – we offer a range of garden sprinklers to cover every eventuality from mini sprinklers, Hozelock equivalents, micro sprinklers, oscillators and brass sprinklers; a sprinkler for every situation. They are ideal for densely planted and established boarders. They produce a fine gentle spray making them perfect for freshly sown areas. Available in various kit forms, please see our webstore for the full range we have on offer.
Control Equipment – In order to make the best use of your irrigation system’s efficiency, watering should be regular and sufficient. With our controllers you will never forget to switch the water on or off and which also can discreetly be done whilst you are asleep. When you are away on holiday, the system will automatically switch itself on and off at preset times. Battery, clockwork and mains operated controllers are available.
No longer will you need to ask a neighbour to water your garden, with one of our automatic irrigation systems in place, you can be rest assured that you garden and plants will be kept watered whilst you are relaxing and enjoying that well-earned holiday.
Still in doubt of your requirements, all enquiries are genuinely welcome from simple pot watering to small gardens so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
