The Q&A Archives: Sprinkler system with an artisian well

Question: I have a well. We live about 100 yards from a swamp, 200 yards from a lake, so you can imagine that our ground water level does not really get that low. I was wondering if you had anyone with a smaller sprinkler system with a well on-hand and if it would be a good idea to do so? I want to put it in myself. We have about 3/4 acre of land with most of it grass. I know I would need a timer.Thank

Answer: I'm not familiar enough with the soils and water table in your area so I'm not sure how to advise you. I think the best source of information for you is your local cooperative extension service. Helpful folks there can assist you in determining just what kind of an irrigation system you should install. TOLL FREE NUMBER: 1-877-EXT-GROW (1-877-398-4769). Ask for a Master Gardener.
