What is Reticulation?
Reticulation,(also known as Retic or Irrigation), is defined as a grid like structure or pattern. However in Australia, and more specifically in WA, we know it as an automated system to water our lawns and gardens.
Retic in Perth is almost essential. With long, hot and dry summers, our lawns and gardens would quickly die or struggle at the least without regular watering.
The easiest way to do this is by having an automated system. You can hand water, but it’s not only time consuming, but also often inconsistent and uneven. A professionally designed and installed system ensures even, regular watering to all your green areas, without the hassle. It can even save water compared to manual systems that can be left running as you get on with other things in life.
Watering days in Perth are 2 days a week for mains water and 3 times a week if you have a bore. The Water Corp website list your watering days based on your house/lot number.
FPM Landscapes’ Reticulation Division offers ongoing maintenance of new and existing systems and can even teach you how to use your controller!
Controller prices vary from under $100 all the way up to $1000! The number off stations is the largest factor in pricing. Brand and features also play a big part. We can help you chose a controller that best suits your needs.
The top 3 Retic brands globally are Rainbird, Hunter and Toro. While there are many more, these three account for the largest part of the pie.
Retic controllers have come a long way in terms of tech and features. The latest and greatest controllers feature WiFi, live weather info and smart watering. You can control them from anywhere in the world and even get info about watering schedules, run the system manually or turn it off.
