Can Lawn Belt bring my dry, burned-out lawn back to life?

Just because it’s been hotter than usual this summer doesn’t mean you should give up on your lawn. Or maybe it’s your shrubbery that you don’t want to lose. Get an environmentally friendly drip system and you won’t have to worry about your expensive landscaping. With a Lawnbelt automatic sprinkler system you can easily keep it all alive and green, even through the toughest droughts.

If reseeding or resodding -install the Lawn Belt directly beneath your topsoil… and remember to keep the it watered throughout the day while establishing the root system.

How do I winterize Lawn Belt?

Lawn Belt has been tested to survive the harshest weather, so there is no need to drain when winter approaches. Simply disconnect the hidden hose or sprinkler system from the spigot. This will relieve any remaining pressure during winter months. You may want to cap or plug your inlet to keep out any debris.

Should I install the system before I lay the sod?

You may find it easier to install immediately after sod installation. In some cases you may find you can follow the seam of the sod as well.

Lawn belt installs just below the sod line. The sprinkler head should be flush with the top of sod.

How deep do I dig at the head location (U Fitting)?

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.
