You can use a coupler kit to join Lawn Belt together (we supply these with the rolls you purchase).
The Lawn Sprinkler Kits come in either the Big-Lawn (3 pop-up max rotors – each spraying each a 40′ diameter) or Small-Lawn (3 pop-up sprayers – each covering 15-20 feet diameter).
The Garden Border Kit comes with 4 – 90 degree popup heads spraying about 10 feet out.
The Custom Kit comes with no sprinkler heads (you add your own 1/2″ head)
The Drip Irrigation Kit has 4 outlets each head (total of 12) and 12 gallon drippers
We also have more sprinkler heads available in the store.
You may find it easier to install before sod installation. If timing is an issue you can install it after and in some cases you may follow the seam of the sod as well.
Lawn belt installs just below the sod line. The sprinkler head should be flush with topsoil.
For the Lawn Belt you are cutting a 2″-4″ deep into the sod using a flat spade. The spade is rocked back and forth to create a V-shaped opening in the earth. Then the Belt is pressed down into slit just under your sod line.
At each sprinkler head location you dig a deeper and wider V-shaped opening 9-10″ down.
If you want to go deeper you will need to extend the U Fitting using a 1/2 extension available at your hardware store. Connect this at each U/ End Fitting to allow head to reach the top of your sod line.
Here’s an example of a 100×100 square layout to give you an idea. This one shows 2 spigots (one additional added with a Hidden Hose Kit. Each rotor spays about 1500 sq ft when a full circle is watered.
When installing Lawn Belt in large garden areas you will need to have multiple hose bib locations to simplify your sprinkler design.
Lawn Belt is designed for 3 heads p/ zone – although multiple kits can be attached to one water source and then watered separately with timers. To accomplish this see our sprinkler timers and accessories
