The Q&A Archives: How high above rolled dirt level to install pop-up sprinklers before sod.

Question: I am wondering how high above the finished soil level I should install my pop-up sprinklers prior to rolling out sod.

Answer: When installing the risers, measure carefully to insure that the height is correct for the type of sprinkler head installed. The sprinkler heads should extend about 5/8-inch above the ground before sod is laid and should be level with the sod root base afterward.

Good luck with your project!
