Irrigation Systems

Life Landscapes has a highly trained and specialised irrigation department to irrigate flower beds, gardens, lawns, sports fields and greenwalls for corporate clients and residential estates. A good irrigation system delivers the correct amount of water to a large area, on an automated basis, without needing human labour.

One of our key aims with irrigation is to make it as water-wise as possible, especially in a South African climate plagued with high temperatures, drought and water shortages. Our teams will assess your site and advise on which irrigation, sprinkler, water volume and system would be best.

“Your success lies in your own hands. You must, therefore, not wait for the grass to become greener by magic. You have the hands to irrigate your own territory by doing what is expected of you!” ― Israelmore Ayivor

Our work aligns with landscape and turf design and we operate from a municipal water supply, borehole, water tank or dam supply. We assist with all these areas and can also install tanks and booster pumps where needed.

On new projects, we work with construction teams to ensure optimal placement and layout of irrigation mainlines and sleeves and, on existing sites, we aim to implement irrigation solutions that cause minimal damage to existing gardens and paving.

Life Landscapes can facilitate the following irrigation systems:

  • Automated irrigation control systems
  • Wiring and piping for an automated irrigation system
  • Irrigation zones
  • Drip irrigation systems
  • Rain sensors
  • Moisture probes


Why should you install an irrigation system?

Irrigation systems have revolutionised watering. A good irrigation system delivers the correct amount of water to a large area, whereas a landscape technician with a hose delivers large amounts of water to a small area.  A hosepipe can damage plants as it is dragged through a landscape, and this manual process can be both time consuming and costly.

Life Landscapes only installs irrigation systems for landscape construction clients. We do not install domestic irrigation systems.
