As the leading sprinkler repair company in Cache County UT, Sprinkler Master knows a thing or two about keeping your yard looking healthy and vibrant. One of the most important ways in achieving a beautiful yard is choosing the right plants for your landscape as well as having a proper watering system. Here are some tips on where to place different types of plants and what plants to use in your yard.

Where to Place Plants:

  1. Sun-loving plants: Place sun-loving plants, such as roses and daisies, in areas that receive at least six hours of direct sunlight each day.
  2. Shade-loving plants: Place shade-loving plants, such as ferns and hostas, in areas that receive little to no direct sunlight each day.
  3. Wet areas: Choose plants that thrive in wet areas, such as cattails and irises, for areas that tend to collect water.
  4. Dry areas: Choose drought-resistant plants, such as succulents and lavender, for areas that receive little to no water.

What Plants to Use:

  1. Trees: Trees not only provide shade but also add visual interest to your yard. Some great tree options include maple, oak, and birch.
  2. Shrubs: Shrubs can provide privacy and add texture to your yard. Some great shrub options include boxwood, holly, and hydrangea.
  3. Perennials: Perennials come back year after year and add color and texture to your landscape. Some great perennial options include coneflowers, daylilies, and peonies.
  4. Annuals: Annuals are a great way to add color to your yard and can be changed out each year. Some great annual options include marigolds, petunias, and zinnias.
  5. Vegetables and herbs: Planting a vegetable or herb garden not only provides fresh produce but also adds beauty to your yard. Some great vegetable and herb options include tomatoes, peppers, basil, and rosemary.

In conclusion, choosing the right plants for your yard is essential to achieving a beautiful and healthy landscape.. By considering the amount of sunlight and water your yard receives and choosing the right trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, and vegetables and herbs, you can create a yard that is not only beautiful but also functional.

How to Adjust Rainbird 5000 Rotors

Sprinkler Master sprinkler repair technician adjusting a Rainbird 5000 sprinkler.

Maintaining a healthy, beautiful lawn starts with keeping your sprinkler system in top condition. Rainbird 5000 rotors are reliable and popular choices, and adjusting Rain Bird 5000 rotors is easy once you know how. 

Here’s a quick guide to get you started:

Tools You’ll Need:

Adjusting the Arc

The arc is the range of rotation from side to side. Rainbird 5000 rotors can be adjusted between 40 degrees and 360 degrees.

  • Turn on your system and stand behind the water spray. Gently grab the head of the rotor below the spray and turn it from side to side to determine the current arc.
  • To adjust the starting point of the arc, turn the rotor head to the desired starting point and gently force it to turn.
  • The arc adjustment screw is located on the top of the rotor head. To narrow the arc, turn the screw counterclockwise. To widen the arc, turn the screw clockwise. Test the arc by turning the head again and adjusting as needed.

Adjusting the Distance of the Spray

The distance of the spray (or radius) is how far the rotor can throw the water from itself. Rainbird 5000 rotors have an adjustable radius between 25 and 50 feet or 7.5 and 15 meters.

  • If you need to change the nozzle, choose one that is slightly larger than the desired distance. Remove the old nozzle by turning it counterclockwise. Attach the new nozzle by turning it clockwise.
  • To adjust the distance, locate the distance adjustment screw. It’s usually located on the side of the rotor head. Turn the screw clockwise to increase the distance or counterclockwise to decrease it. Test the distance and adjust as needed.

Other Adjustments for Rain Bird 5000s

  • If your rotor is spraying too high or too low, you can adjust the height of the head by turning the height adjustment screw. It’s usually located on the top of the head. Turn the screw clockwise to raise the head or counterclockwise to lower it.
  • If your rotor is tilted at an incorrect angle, you can use a shovel to gently lift it up and reset it.

Contact Us

That’s it! With these simple steps, you’ll be able to easily adjust your Rainbird 5000 rotor and keep your sprinkler system running smoothly. 

If you have any further questions or need help with your Rainbird system, don’t hesitate to contact us at (435) 760-0827 or check out what repair service we offer. We’re here to help!
