With a succession of dry summers irrigation has become more and more desirable. I installed irrigation for my own croquet lawn in early 2020 and the lawn played well throughout the season and looked superb as well. Mine is only a small club with 14 members and the cost of water to irrigate for the 2020 season worked out at around £15 per member. Irrigation produces an excellent playing surface with no down time and no drought repairs.
To make it easier for clubs to acquire an irrigation system, I design and supply systems specifically for croquet lawns on a DIY installation basis. The main components of the system are manufactured Rain Bird and supplied to me by the UK distributor Rigby Taylor. Installation is mainly connecting pipes using bolt-on saddles or compression fittings. It is DIY but I won't leave you to do it on your own. I provide a trenching machine free of charge and give on site guidance during the installation (usually 2 to 3 days). That way everything runs smoothly.
Electronic controls are usually sited in the club house and require a power socket. If you have WiFi, the system can be activated remotely from anywhere in the world.
1 lawn £3500 to £4000
2 Lawns £5500 to £6000
3 Lawns £7000 to £8000
4 Lawns £8000 to £9000
Prices include all components, tools, loan of trenching machine and my on site guidance and support usually for 2 days. You will need an electrician to provide a power supply for the pump (single phase) and, where necessary a concrete pad will be required for the tank. The pump is submersed in the tank, so a pump house is not required.
