All about reticulation repair in Perth

When repairing reticulation in Perth it is important to remember to use quality parts and install them correctly the first time. There is no point in repairing a broken sprinkler on the verge again and again, every time a car drives over it. The source of the damage was a car, but the reason it was broken is that the sprinkler was too high and did not have a concrete surround to protect it.

The solution for this reticulation repair is to dig the sprinkler down so it is beneath the lawn level, and then install a concrete surround to protect it. You can see the difference in simply just repairing the reticulation and providing a reticulation solution.

Here at Luke’s Landscaping and Irrigation we are about providing the solution to your irrigation problems.

Now, bear in mind that providing a solution will always take more time than simply repairing a problem. It can also be more expensive. For instance digging down all your sprinklers at the roads edge, could take a substantial amount of time and effort as opposed to just installing a new sprinkler, without having provided a solution to a problem that will just continue to occur.

Another example of providing a solution compared to just repairing, is with aged, worn out reticulation wiring. Some older systems can have all the wiring running in single strands on top of the ground, or close to it. There are often multiple wire joins, colour changes and wiring that is not protected in a core.

Rather than continually repairing wire breaks and old joins, the solution here is to dig new wiring in. Make sure to run it in a protective core that has all the right colours and use proper Gel Connectors to connect the wiring to the solenoids. At this point you could consider changing any older solenoids as everything would be dug up anyway (solenoids have a certain life span and this would save having to re-dig it up again in the future, saving your wallet).

Another option to look at would be replacing an old irrigation controller. At this point you would have a completely new control system that would last for many years to come. With a new system you could save yourself the trouble and cost of having a reticulation company back each year to fix your old, frail system.

These are reticulation solutions, not just reticulation repairs in Perth.

  • A huge thank you to the staff at Luke's Landscaping for the wonderful transformation of our front yard. It's gone from a sandpit to a gorgeous green oasis. The team worked so hard over the week to transform our gardens and we are very appreciative of the attention to detail and care they took.

  • I take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done. This is the second time I have used your services. Not only because you did such a good, clean and efficient job, but also the fact you responded to my inquiry in a professional and timely manner unlike many others who I had to recall and I still couldn’t get any response. I would also like to thank your staff who worked diligently until the job was done to our satisfaction particularly giving my wife and myself peace of mind. Therefore, I will always recommend your services to any family or friends, in fact if you need to send any prospective clients to view our garden feel free to do so. If you require any verbal reference feel free to have your client contact me. We wish you all the success in the future with your business.

  • I used Luke’s Landscaping to provide an overhaul of my front lawn with the task to reduce the amount of lawn and increase the low maintenance area including a rock feature. Also, they were used to provide a major landscaping overhaul for my Daughter’s back garden including lawns, garden beds and low water usage reticulation. All work was carried out within the agreed time schedule. The staff are very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. The work completed with efficiency, and all aspects were well-coordinated. The materials used were of a good quality that enhances the finished product. My daughter and I are very pleased with results.
  • Luke & his team did quite a large landscaping job for us. Lisa came up with a design that we loved & was involved from start to finish. Any little issues that came up along the way were dealt with quickly & efficiently. The quality of Mark’s work & his attention to detail were outstanding. We are thrilled with our new yard & highly recommend Luke’s Landscaping.
  • Our front yard in Karrinyup was completely transformed in March 2015. In just one week, the team completed the job of removing what was there, replaced the topsoil, installed the reticulation and mulched with native plants. Four months on we are still so impressed with the job and delighted that we used Luke’s Landscaping. Highly recommended!
