Spring is almost here and that means one thing: It’s time to think about outdoor construction projects – specifically underground irritation systems.
When you are thinking about installing pipes or conduits for an underground irrigation system, you might have questions about digging or drilling. There are a few ways to dig or drill to install an underground irritation system, but here’s what you need to know.
But if you are a business looking to install something on a larger scale, that might not work. Hiring a directional boring contractor could be the way to go.
Larger underground irrigation systems like those found on a sports field, in a park or public garden or on a farm have different requirements – and factors such as size, location to a water source and differing plants and types of grass. Making sure these plants and grasses have water when they need it means an underground irrigation system – on a large scale.
Whether to dig or drill depends on many factors but sometimes, manual digging just won’t work.
Other options, depending on the size and scope of the project could include digging with a trencher, which can save time. It does disrupt the landscape and can have issues when there is other landscaping or tree roots.
Using a backhoe or an excavator is also an option, but these large machines cause a lot of damage.
For large projects that could benefit from minimal disruption to landscape or hardscape, directional boring is a great option.
It generally doesn’t damage underground infrastructure or utilities and it can avoid damaging plants and other features as well. That’s because once the drilling is done, the pipe is removed. It is a slow process and can be costly but it has benefits to landscaped areas or environmentally sensitive zones – especially areas with large or historical trees.
