Irrigation Systems on the Mornington Peninsula
First, if you are lucky enough to live and work on the Mornington Peninsula, like us at Ecostream. Good work! It is a fantastic place to do life!
The peninsula offers unique challenges regarding installing, scheduling and maintaining irrigation systems.
This article aims to break down what we have come across in the areas of the Mornington Peninsula where we have installed and maintained irrigation systems.
So, Suburb by suburb, here we go
When installing an irrigation system in Mornington, Mount Martha, or Mount Eliza, you can find soils to vary immensely. Some areas off Racecourse Road have hard clay, whereas in Mount Martha, down the bottom of the hill along Glen Isla Drive, you could find very sandy soil. This will affect how you space the dripper and use the cycle and soak function on the irrigation controller. Some areas of Mount Martha have inferior pressure, so pressure boosting with a pump may be required.
Ensure you test the salinity of bore water in Hastings or Bittern. High saline content can be an issue in certain areas, so evaluating whether bore water suits your garden is essential. Consider opting for salt-tolerant plants if salinity is a concern. Consult a horticulturalist and irrigation expert for possible solutions if you need help.
Are you designing an irrigation system in Rosebud, Blairgowrie, Safety Beach, Rye, or Dromana? Remember the lively summer atmosphere in these areas! Consider late-night festivities and potential vehicle damage. Keep in mind tents on lawns and cars parked on nature strips. Your irrigation system should accommodate it all.
