Pugh’s Earthworks

The certified landscape professionals at Pugh’s Earthworks will help any commercial property owner with an optimum sprinkler system design. After careful review of the terrain, soil conditions, types of grass planted and climate for the region, you will be assured that during the periods of critical watering, your sprinkler system will properly handle the job. Consultation with our customers is invaluable and we want to be sure that we answer all questions before and after installation. Customers may also visit our Q&A link on our website for fast and accurate answers to all types of Commercial Landscape questions.

Below is an example of some Q&A regarding sprinkler systems:

Q: How will I benefit from an in-ground sprinkler system?

A: Since hand watering is done on a random basis, and at irregular intervals, an automatic sprinkler system will actually, in most cases, use less water. It will also disperse the water at an even rate, and for a predetermined amount of time. This allows you to water sunny and shady areas for different periods of time, and to water when it is most efficient. One obvious benefit is the ability to continue a watering program while you are away on vacation, etc.

Q: How long does a system take to put in?

A: It would depend on the area that is trying to be covered. An average size lawn (@15,000 sq. ft.) can usually be done in one full day, depending on the situation. A large country lawn can take anywhere from two to four days. On average, we spend one to two days on a job.

Q: What is a back flow device, and why do I need one on my sprinkler system?

A: A back flow device is generally a brass assembly that will prevent any water from the sprinkler system from getting into the drinking water supply, and are required by all municipalities. There are many different types of these, and each individual municipality has differing requirements for the installation.

Q: What type of maintenance does the system require?

A: All systems need to be winterized at the end of the season. This is done by attaching an air hose to a fitting on the water line, and blowing all of the water out of the system. Most people that we install systems for simply turn it back on in the springtime themselves. We do offer the service of opening systems for the season. The quality of the products used initially, and of the overall installation, play an important part in the long term service of the system. The better the products and installation, the less trouble you should expect in the future.
