I am having areas of my garden hardscaped (walls, paving, fencing etc) Do I need to advise this at the consultation?

Yes. We need to know if you are planning any other works that may impact the front yard so we can accommodate in our design. These works must be completed prior to handover to PHASE3.

Wil the irrigation system that PHASE3 install be able to service the back yard?

Yes. We will leave a mainline supply in 25mm PVC plus control wires for solenoid valves to allow you to extend the system to the rear. These will be left at the front of the property and marked up on the as constructed drawing we issue at handover.

The landscape will be installed within 28 days of the initial consultation.

 

THE SITE

How does the site have to be prepared for handover to PHASE3 ?

The site has to be clean, free of weeds, rubble and rubbish and raked level at least 40mm below the top of adjacent paving.

What if my site isn’t prepared, can PHASE3 do this?

Yes we can do this but it will be quoted and charged separate to the front yard package.

What else needs to be done before handover to Phase3?

90mm PVC pipe needs to of been laid under the driveway at a depth between 300-400mm so the irrigation pipes can be run to garden beds. This pipe needs to be 4m from the front of the garage /carport for properties where access is not from the rear laneway.

If this hasn’t been done then pavers will need to be lifted and re-laid. We can do this but it will be quoted and charged separate to the front yard package.

If you plan to pave the area beneath your controller location (usually adjacent to meter box) you need to install a conduit (minimum 20mm diameter) with a draw wire to provide access for the irrigation cables.

What about access to my water meter?

Yes, we require access to your water meter. Please ensure there is no paving, concrete or fencing too close to the water meter. We will require 1-2 square metres.

I’m planning on having a bore, what do I do?

You need to advise us on the initial consultation so we can plan the irrigation accordingly. You will need to provide us with the size and expected flow rate of the bore. The bore will need to be installed before the site is handed over to PHASE3. We will provide the controller for your electrician to install.

If you require PHASE3 to install the bore we can quote separately for you.

It is applied at a depth of 20mm and cultivated into the top 200mm layer of existing site sand.

It is free of seeds, plant pathogens and disease, ready to create a natural microclimate for growth and sustained water use efficiency.

 

AFTER INSTALLATION

Will my irrigation system be automatically set?

Yes. We will set the controller to water for establishment of the garden. This will include registering with Water Corporation and exemption for the establishment watering. We will forward the exemption certificate and it then becomes your responsibility to reset the controller back to your allowed watering days once the exemption period expires. It is important that you ensure you do this as you can be fined by the Water Corporation.

When should I mow my lawn after installation?

The lawn should be mowed 2 weeks after installation if installed during spring/summer and 3-4 weeks if installed during autumn/winter

Is there a warranty on the works installed by PHASE3?

PHASE3 will warrant the workmanship & materials of the irrigation system for 12 months after the installation date.

I have a leak in the irrigation system and don’t know what to do?

Please contact PHASE3 on 93376985. If the problem seems serious the system can be shut off at the stop valve located at the water meter which feeds water to the system.

If a third party attempts to rectify the system the entire system warranty will become void.

I am unsure how to adjust my irrigation controller?

The controller was issued at the time of handover. If you required PHASE3 to re program the controller, please contact us on 93376985 and we will arrange at a cost of $90
