Landscape irrigation helps supplement Mother Nature. The Seacoast’s salty air mixed with the lack of rain on hot summer days can create less than ideal growing conditions for your lawn. Since maintaining curb appeal is important for any home’s value, our water-wise technology will hydrate your plants and turf to prevent them from stressing or thinning and lead them to their optimal health.
All irrigation systems aren’t equal, and an improperly designed sprinkler system can end up costing a homeowner thousands of extra dollars over time, and waste water. By assessing your home or property’s layout and water supply, Piscataqua Landscaping & Tree Service can custom design and install an in-ground sprinkler system that will save you money and conserve water for the long haul by properly irrigating your landscape.
Our goal for your property is to provide uniform, even coverage without wasting a drop, as opposed to the overlapping and over-extended hydro zones we’ve seen our competitors design.
Water-wise System Technology in the Seacoast NH and Southern ME
To supplement your well-designed irrigation layout, a good system with the latest controller technology is needed to manage the watering schedule so that your lawn will never look under or over watered. This also helps reduce water waste and your water bill.
Today’s irrigation systems are extremely sophisticated. We have controllers that can download weather data from the Cloud to adjust the watering schedule accordingly. Or, if wind speeds are above a certain point, a system can be set so it won’t turn on—saving water from blowing away from its targeted zone. Away on vacation? You can adjust your system through your phone’s wi-fi and feel rest assured.
The Benefits of water-waste prevention/ Certified Irrigation Contractor
Piscataqua Landscaping & Tree Service has Certified Irrigation Contractors on its team.
EPA WaterSense Certified Irrigation Contractors (CIC) are trained in methods to design and repair irrigation systems with competencies in building codes, water flow, piping, backflow prevention and design to name a few. CICs can audit and certify that your irrigation system meets certain criteria for both private and public water supplies.
Because of the rigorous standards needed to become certified, our CIC and Irrigation Manager Frank Luther is one of the very few in the area. His belief in the program has prompted him to train members of his team to become CICs.
If your property is in a community that offers irrigation only water meters or irrigation deduct meters, we can help!

Maintenance & Winterization
Efficiency of your system is the most important factor when watering your lawn or garden. With technology having changed in the past 20 years, poorly installed older systems are now inefficient and costly. Well-maintained older systems can last awhile, but supplemental parts will wear out over time and need replacing.
Your system should be checked, ideally monthly during irrigation season, which, depending on the weather, can be from Memorial Day through mid-September. During these maintenance checks, the controller and parameters can be adjusted for the health of your lawn and the technician can make sure your system is doing its job properly.
Piscataqua Landscaping & Tree Service can also help with winterization of your sprinkler system before the first freeze, whether you’re a current or new customer to us.
