Irrigation Installation
Tulsa Irrigation Repair & Install

There are many types of irrigation systems.  Here are our top 8 tips to better understand your Irrigation repair & installation in Tulsa.


  • Making sure you have the right water pressure is key.  Typically in newer parts of Tulsa, such as South Tulsa, parts of midtown, Jenks, and Broken Arrow will have a higher water pressure therefore you can typically install less zones when installing a new irrigation system in your yard.
  • Many irrigation installation companies in Tulsa charge by the zone.  It is important to do this for both parties because the pricing is very clear and there is typically no confusion.
  • An irrigation system will simply save you money and time.  This will allow you to spend more time with family, friends, and ultimately doing what you love, rather than watering your lawn and plants everyday.
  • In the extreme Oklahoma heat, it is advised to water your lawn at least 1.5″ per week to adequately water your lawn.  Again, this is very time consuming therefore an irrigation system will save you time.
  • There are many different wifi irrigation controllers to choose from. This will you to operate and check on your irrigation system from anywhere.
  • An experienced Irrigation company will know how to save on your water bill by properly installing the right irrigation rotors so there is no issues with over spraying and ultimately wasting water on concrete or fences etc.
  • Generally, the irrigation repair company that installs your irrigation system will be able to provide a blueprint of the system so if repairs are needed in the future, you will have a better understanding of the areas.
  • Always remember to winterize your irrigation system as well.  Winterization can be inexpensive.  Typically quotes are around $150 per winterization.  This will save you so many headaches come spring time when you find out water was not drained out of your back flow properly and now you need a new back flow, which is a very expensive repair!
Do I need to hire a landscape company to make my lawn great again?

Do I need to hire a landscape company for my lawn to look great?  

One day you wake up and decide to go for a stroll around your neighborhood and see all of these beautiful lawns that have lawn care companies taking care of them but you are a do it yourself, a weekend warrior, a jack of all trades.  You want to give it a try yourself.  Here are our top 7 tips to help you have the best lawn on the block without a professional lawn care service.

  1. Fall is a very important time of the year to get your lawn prepared for the spring and summer.  At this time we recommend aerating and overseeing your lawn, no matter what turf type it is.  This will allow it to take root from fall to spring to prepare to be nice and full for summer.
  2. Trimming your shrubs consistently is a key maintenance task for keeping your flowerbeds tidy.  This will help the growth and grooming of your flowerbeds into what you desire.
  3. Mowing your lawn weekly is a must do in Tulsa.  Not only does Bermuda grass grow horizontally, you should cut it at 2″ or less according to the OSU extension office.
  4. A thick layer of mulch, such as 3-4″ will slow the growth of weeds.  Contrary to popular belief, weed fabric actually germinates weeds sucker than if you were to compare it to a bed with a 3-4″ layer of mulch.
  5. Your lawn needs at least 1.5″ of water per week in order to thrive.  This will especially be taken care of by the crazy spring rains we get in Tulsa but during summer months your irrigation system should be always picking up the slack!
  6. Turf care is very important for the health of your grass and the overall aesthetics.  We always recommend a 7 step treatment to cover all weeds we get in Eastern Oklahoma.  This treatment plan would include 2 pre-emergents, 2 post-emergents, and 3 fertilizations.
  7. Aeration & over-seeding is especially important for Fescue lawns.  This is the proper time of year for over-seeding the Fescue so it has plenty of time to take root before the brutal summer Oklahoma heat.
