The installation of an irrigation system is easy and inexpensive. But planning an irrigation system can be technically challenging and daunting for some and puts off would-be installers from taking the plunge.
A poorly planned system can require extensive revisions, thereby negating any savings you may have accrued by doing it yourself. If you are struggling to figure out how to plan an irrigation system for your garden, don't fear, we are more than happy to help.
To take advantage of our free design advice, we need you to provide an accurate drawing of your garden and measure the performance of your water source. We'll take care of the rest!
When you have gathered this information, send it to email@example.com or call to speak to one of our team.
Our free irrigation advice service can help you to plan your irrigation system for the best possible results. You can call our helpline on +44(0)1646 402050 and ask our expert team for help and guidance on designing your irrigation system. We will advise you on the best irrigation tips for your garden for no charge.

Our free irrigation design advice caters to a diverse range of clients, including homeowners, landscapers, and professional irrigation installers. If you need additional assistance, we invite you to explore our extensive resources available on our website, providing further free advice and guidance for planning and installing an effective garden irrigation system.
Our helpful resources, listed below, include step by step guides on irrigation planning and how to measure your garden for irrigation. With this information, we will happily design a bespoke garden irrigation system and provide a full shopping list of components needed.
This guide takes you through the first steps of planning a garden irrigation system, and shows you what types of irrigation system are used for different areas of your garden. We ask customers to complete this if they are seeking advice on irrigation design.
Start here to get an overview of exactly what garden irrigation is. In the guide you will find tips for effective watering in the garden, the different methods of garden irrigation, and help choosing the best type to suit you and your garden.
When you purchase a garden irrigation system we plan for you, it doesn't end there; we will continue to provide technical support during your installation until the job is complete. You can get in touch with our technical support team via phone or email.
The time it takes our team to complete a design varies depending on the complexity of the plan. Our team have been trained to the highest of standards by industry leaders and follow best practices to ensure every project completed is effective and efficient with water use. Achieving a finished irrigation design plan requires a thorough process that can take some time to complete.
During our peak period (April-July), the usual wait times are between 2 – 4 calendar weeks to receive a completed design.
Having a firm plan in place before beginning your irrigation installation is essential. Failure to plan could result in you purchasing an expensive system that does not perform as expected. Creating a plan will ensure you consider crucial aspects of the system, such as available flow rate and pressure, and helps to identify required zoning and pipe sizing.
This question is difficult to answer, as many factors can influence a system’s cost. Smaller gardens will usually end up costing less than more extensive gardens. However, unusually shaped gardens may require more sprinklers and, therefore, cost more. To avoid disappointment, we recommend the following budgets.
Micro Irrigation Systems
Small Gardens - £100 - £500
Large Gardens - £500 - £1500
Pop-Up Sprinkler Systems
Small Gardens - £800 - £1500
Large Gardens - £1500 - £4000
We recommend having our team complete a full design for you to get an accurate cost for your garden.
For our team to accurately design an irrigation system, they first gather the necessary information, including the details of the water source performance and a detailed scale drawing of the area that requires irrigation. Our designers will then overlay the location of any irrigation emitters onto the drawing, including pop-up sprinklers and micro irrigation. Once the emitters are chosen and placed, the designer will use the water source information to determine the required zones for the optimal performance of the emitters. Once the zoning has been identified, details such as the necessary pipe sizing are calculated. The final step for the designer is to create a shopping list of all the components needed for installation.
In short, yes. All the information is required for the designers to complete a design in full, so they will not begin if it is not present. We will let you know if we require more information when you have submitted a request.
A water pressure measurement is not as crucial for micro irrigation systems. We assume it will be connected to a mains-supplied water source with at least 1 BAR pressure - the minimum required pressure for satisfactory performance of a micro irrigation system. If you have any doubt, speak to our team and they can assist you.
Please don’t. Trying to guess the water pressure from your water source is like trying to guess the weight of an elephant; you’re probably going to get it wrong! The same goes for the dimensions of your garden or the flow rate. If you submit inaccurate information to our designers, you will get a flawed plan and, ultimately, a system that will fail to perform as expected.
