Irrigation Pipe Puller That Won?t Destroy Your Lawn While Installing Sprinklers
Posted by Line Ward on July 30th, 2016
Making your lawn look just the way you want it to has most likely taken your years to accomplish. Now, you have it just the way you want it, and would like to install an irrigation system. But, this can be risky—you don’t want to undo the hard work you’ve put into your lawn with trenches and holes. Luckily, there’s a machine for that.
When it comes to installing an irrigating system without taking a toll on your lawn, using a vibratory plow is the smartest way to go. Trenchless pipe installation machines have a vibratory plow that can install your irrigation system with putting nothing but a barely noticeable slit in the ground.
The trenching process can destroy your entire yard, costing you money and wasting time while you reseed and level the ground for years after the irrigation system has been installed. Not only does it cause you this stress, but it also takes a longer time to complete because more hand labor is involved. When a contactor mentions trenching, it’s time to move on to the next one.
Contractors that use a vibratory plow will be the most cost effective and efficient to work with. A vibratory plow is a machine that moves similar to a sewing machine, which cuts a small slit throughout the ground, installing the irrigation system as it moves. Because it’s cutting and installing simultaneously, a trenchless vibratory plow can get the job done in half the time. As mentioned before, a small slit in the ground is the only aftermath you’ll have to encounter. This can be fixed in a short amount of time with little effort.
If you’re worried about any obstacle such as driveways or sidewalks you may have in your lawn, horizontal drilling attachments can be added to your burying machine. It allows you to install your irrigation system underneath pavement without digging it up, which makes choosing vibratory plowing even easier.
Along with picking a vibratory plow, the time of year is also something to consider when installing an irrigation system. Early spring and fall are best because the ground is soft, making for less work and a shorter recovery time. The middle of summer, though it may be most convenient, is difficult because the ground will be dry and tougher on the machinery. However, the right vibratory plow has the power to work through the toughest conditions.
If you hire a contractor who uses a vibratory plow, there will be little recovery time once the irrigation system is installed. But to speed it up for maximum recovery, be sure to water your lawn heavily for the next few days. The slit made by the vibratory plow will be completely disappeared in no time.
This summer, when you think about installing an irrigation system, make sure you do your research. Knowledgeable contractors will most likely use a vibratory plow. With the ease a vibratory plow provides, you’ll be outside enjoying your lawn in no time at all.
