When is the Best Time to Install a Sprinkler System in WI or MN?


Let’s face it, the best time to install a lawn sprinkler system is before your grass dies.

But if you’re looking for more specific timing, we have some tips. A couple might surprise you.

When is the best time to install a sprinkler system?

Grab your calendar and let’s take a look.

Thinking of Spring?

Lots of people do. It sounds like a perfect plan — get that system in as soon as the ground thaws and it’ll be ready to roll for the heat of summer.

But good irrigation companies are crazy busy in the spring, getting lawn sprinkler systems up and running for thousands of their current customers.

It’ll be a challenge to get on their calendar for a new installation until after Memorial Day.

New Lawn Sprinkler System? Shoot For Summer

Once the spring start-up season is over is the best time to install a sprinkler system.

In fact, fall is a good time for sprinkler installation. Then, you’ll be up and running in the spring.

Building a New Home? Think Lawn Sprinkler Systems Now

If you’re building a new home, that’s the best time to install a sprinkler system.

You’ll actually spend less money than having a system installed in existing landscaping.

Installing a lawn sprinkler system in dirt takes less time and labor than installing one in grass.

Installers don’t have to worry about digging up portions of lawn and replacing them after running the lines.

Your Lawn Will Thank You

If you’re building a house, you’ll be planting grass. Growing grass is harder than you think.

Dragging your hoses and old school sprinklers around several times a day will get old fast.

You’ll be happy for that lawn sprinkler system to get your grass growing.

Pondering a Lawn Sprinkler System? Plan Ahead

New homes are exciting — but real budget busters.

If your budget doesn’t allow for an irrigation system when you’re building your house, but you know one is in your future, work with your builder to prepare for it.

Increase your well pump size. Stub out the plumbing. That will make things easier when you’re ready to roll.

Existing Yard? No Problem!

Actually, most of the lawn sprinkler systems we install are in existing landscaping. It’s no problem at all.
