Reticulation in Ellenbrook

Is your reticulation system in Ellenbrook in need of a significant upgrade? You’ve landed in the right place. With nearly two decades of experience in the field, we’ve been diligently installing and repairing reticulation systems all over Perth and love working in the Ellenbrook and Vines area. 

Our journey started with front yard packages in Ellenbrook, providing us with a good  understanding of the area and how the systems are initially installed. Ellenbrook, faces unique challenges due to its sandy soil, as well as many hastily installed reticulation systems and gardens  that don’t meet professional standards. This combination of sandy soil and poorly planned retic and gardens results in many gardens that just don’t look healthy.

Over the years, our expertise has grown, and when we look back at those earlier installations, we can’t help but wonder, “What were we doing?”

Tips for a Great Reticulation System in Ellenbrook

A truly efficient irrigation system depends on several factors, and we’re here to ensure yours meets all these criteria. So, what makes a great irrigation system?

  1. **Adequate Sprinklers**: Coverage is key, and that starts with having enough sprinklers that overlap for complete and effective watering.

In Ellenbrook, many irrigation systems exhibit some common issues:

  1. **Wiring Concerns**: Wires run haphazardly, not following proper conduit guidelines and just sitting in the soil
  2. **Faded Controllers**: Exterior controllers showing signs of age and weathering.
  3. **Solenoid Shortage**: Inadequate solenoids leading to poor pressure.
  4. **Sprinkler Scarcity**: Not enough sprinklers in lawns and garden beds, resulting in patchy coverage.
  5. **Low Sprinkler Height**: Sprinklers buried too deep in the grass, hindering proper water distribution.
  6. **Water Wastage**: Excessive runoff down the road.
  7. **Garden Neglect**: Overgrown gardens damaging pipes and blocking sprinklers.
  8. **Substandard Irrigation**: Systems not meeting professional standards.

How to Improve an Existing Reticulation System in Ellenbrook

We specialise in overhauling and  repairing existing reticulation systems as well as installing high quality new systems  and we proudly extend our services to Ellenbrook and The Vines. 

Fortunately, there are numerous ways to enhance the quality of your irrigation system.

For example, in cases where sprinklers are submerged beneath overgrown grass, we replace them with taller pop-ups, ensuring proper coverage without obstructing your lawn mower’s path. But that’s just one of many improvements we offer.

Some older drip line systems may also be improperly installed, leading to recurring problems. The key to a thriving garden is the synergy between irrigation and nutrient-rich soil. In many Ellenbrook homes, the soil conditioner applied during construction eventually washes away, leaving gardens pale, unhealthy, and struggling. That’s where we turn to the Green Life Soil Company, a source of high-quality soil enriched with essential nutrients and microbes.
