*Always start with a plan to eliminate surprises.

*Plan ahead, think of future projects, pools, low-voltage lighting, etc., and allow for them.

*Don't buy inferior grade irrigation equipment from the hardware stores go to an irrigation and landscape supply store. See my suppliers in the Preferred Contractors list.

*Upgrade your irrigation controller to a smart controller or a model with water budgeting.

*Install a separate cutoff valve and pressure-regulating valve to control your irrigation system and reduce the pressure to the system. Many new homes don't have a pressure regulator on the irrigation system and you end up with lots of sprayer misting and replacement costs on valves etc.

*Keep it simple and don't overplant or under irrigate. Choose proven plants that are adapted to our area.
