AT OSPREY, WE UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR GARDEN REFLECTS THE PRIDE THAT YOU TAKE IN HOME AND YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD.
AN AUTOMATIC IRRIGATION SYSTEM IS THE EASIEST WAY TO KEEP YOUR LANDSCAPE BEAUTIFUL AND PROVIDE YOU WITH THREE GREAT DIVIDENDS
SIMPLICITY. Save time and effort. Once an irrigation system is installed you’ll never have to drag a hose all over your garden, never have to try to work out if you’ve applied enough (or too much) water and you’ll never have to worry about watering your garden whilst you’re away.
EFFICIENCY. As the system is automatic, you don’t have to be there to physically apply the water. You’ll have more time to enjoy your garden and free time.
VALUE. We know that gardens require substantial investment and skillful maintenance. An automatic irrigation system will protect that investment by assuring healthier, longer living plants and turf. Installing an irrigation system is a convenience “upgrade” adding value to your property.
OSPREY SYSTEM DESIGN TEAM
Every landscape is different, so we don’t offer an off the shelf package. System design begins with a site visit to carry out a full survey and ensure that we understand your requirements. Our in house design department is staffed by Engineers who genuinely install systems. All of our Engineers have hands on technical experience of the latest products, coupled with an understanding of irrigation systems at ground level.
COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
The key to an efficient irrigation system is good quality, efficient products. At Osprey, we are committed to sourcing the best quality, most reliable products.
With the unpredictable British weather, water is a precious resource. Over recent years we have been subject to times of flash flooding and times of drought. But that doesn’t mean that you should have to sacrifice a green lawn and beautiful garden. Our systems are designed using products with maximum water efficiency, including controllers that feature rain sensors – eliminating unnecessary watering.
With summer droughts comes every gardener’s nightmare….the hosepipe ban. Incorporating a rain water harvesting system can not only reduce your reliance on mains water (reducing your water bills), but the potential winter storage of water also gives you the freedom to continue watering your garden during times where water restrictions and hosepipe bans may be imposed. On top of this there are also the environmental benefits of using rainwater; rainwater is pH neutral and contains no disinfection by-products, salt, minerals or any other natural and man-made contaminants. It also allows a reduction in energy usage from the mains water supplier by decreasing demand on the water infrastructure.
“We were recommended to Osprey by our landscape gardener following a large and costly development of our garden some years ago. In the past we had periods of draught which had caused both plant losses and lawn problems, one particular summer whilst we were travelling my daughter who had been left in charge of watering the extensive gardens had texted to say she was “wielded to the hose pipe”.
We decided to incorporate a professional irrigation system in the garden and chose Osprey due to the apparent experience and recommendations, the work was carried out with minimum disruption to the garden and the system has now operated for 6 years with no problems. Back up service and maintenance has been first rate.
The advantages are the flexibility of the system, the ability to leave it operating whilst you are away particularly when rain sensors are incorporated and obviously the quality of the garden. Even in a wet year like 2012, the early part of the growing season was particularly dry and we used the irrigation system to good effect in this period, giving much more even growth and healthy grass and plants.
We have just built a new house and also put in an Osprey irrigation system in the garden. I have no reservations in recommending both the use of irrigation systems and also Osprey, who have provided excellent service.”
