CENTRE PIVOT & LATERAL MOVE IRRIGATORS
Centre pivots and lateral move systems are one of the most effective ways in which farmers can increase their pasture and crop production whilst using less water. According to the Victorian DPI, the introduction of centre pivot or lateral move irrigation systems can provide water savings of up to 2 mega-litres per hectare per year with an increased pasture productivity of up to 30% when compared to flood irrigation.
Improved agronomic conditions, reduced deep drainage, and lower labour requirements are some additional benefits of installing a centre pivot or lateral move irrigation system.
Total Eden has been a leading supplier and installer of pivot and lateral move systems for over two decades. The advantages of using Total Eden is that we employ certified irrigation designers with the skills and experience to design you a system which best suits your soil characteristics, land size, shape and topography as well as your budget. Our expertise ensures that you get to maximise the benefits of investing in a centre pivot or lateral move irrigation system.

POLY REEL & TRAVELLING IRRIGATORS
Poly reel and travelling irrigation systems are the irrigation system of choice for many Australian farmers. Poly reel irrigators main advantages are its flexibility and portability; they are best suit undulating or un-lasered property because they provide considerable water efficiency and productivity gains as well as improved agronomic conditions and reduced potential of deep drainage.
Because of their relatively high pressure and labour requirements, poly reel and travelling irrigators are best suited to annual crops including pastures with lower water requirements. We stock leading brand poly reel irrigators and provide after sales service so you can be sure that your system operates at its maximum capacity.
SUB-SURFACE DRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEMS
Sub-surface drip irrigation is an irrigation method which delivers water directly to the base of the plant. Drip tape is usually placed at a depth between 20 and 40cm below the soil surface, emitters placed evenly along the drip tape release water at a specific and even flow-rate per hour. Sub-surface drip irrigation saves water and fertilizer because it drips directly onto the root zone, eliminating evaporation when compared to sprinkler or flood irrigation methods.
Other benefits of sub-surface drip irrigation are that it provides considerable improvement in productivity and water efficiency. The DPI has indicated that improvements in around 20-30% are achievable. Sub-surface drip systems best suit medium soil country which is dedicated to fodder cropping (i.e. lucerne) or vegetable production. A well maintained drip system requires much less labour to operate than alternative systems and allows for fertigation, providing more effective use of nutrients with less risk of leaching.
Considering the large capital costs of installing systems of this type, it’s important that your system is designed and installed to operate efficiently and effectively. Our certified irrigation designers can tailor a system that suits the topography of you land, its proposed use, your water supply and your budget. With our vast range of experience and 40+ stores nationwide you can understand why Total Eden is the smart choice when it comes to designing and installation your new irrigation system
MICRO IRRIGATION – DRIP & SPRAY
Micro-irrigation refers to low-pressure irrigation systems that sprays, mists, sprinkles or drips water to the root zone of plants, through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters. These systems are extremely sophisticated and are most commonly used in open fields or hothouses for vine, orchard or intensive vegetable industries including Orchards, Vines, Vegetables, Tea, Peanuts, Corn, Cotton, Coffee & Pepper.
There are many advantages of using drip and micro-spray irrigation systems in the horticultural industries including:
- Water savings of 30-50% - when compared to traditional flood or sprinkler irrigation
- The amount of water applied can be closely managed to match the crop requirements - resulting in increased production
- Reduced labour time & operating costs
- Increase flexibility of watering
- Reduced foliage disease and weed growth
Total Eden has the ability to carry out all components of the project, including system design, supply and installation of pumps, filters, mainlines and emitters. We employ expert irrigation designers who take the time to consider your needs. No project is too big or too small and we install anywhere in Australia.
FIXED SPRINKLER SYSTEMS
Fixed sprinkler systems are primarily used for irrigating turf and vegetable crops, as well as frost protection and crop cooling in orchards and vineyards.
In terms of irrigation, fixed sprinkler systems are assembled so that the water supply pipelines are established below the soil, with sprinkler nozzles elevated above the surface. The size and trajectory of emitters will vary according to the crop type and pumping system in place. If designed properly, fixed sprinklers provide first-rate water efficiency and application uniformity, other advantages include minimal labour requirement and low operating costs.
Total Eden boast expert irrigation designers that have considerable experience designing and installing fixed sprinkler systems for turf and vegetable growers, meaning we will maximise the benefits of your investment. So whatever your irrigation needs, Total Eden has got it covered.
PIPE & RISER SYSTEMS
This underground piping network releases water to the top of the irrigation bay via a riser system.
Pipe & riser irrigation systems have revolutionised the irrigation industry in Victoria over the past 10 years as they can effectively replace on-farm open channels and bay outlets and provide farmer’s significant water savings due to reduction in evaporation and seepage.
Other advantages include:
- Increased pasture and crop production
- Reduced labour cost associated with watering
- Increased grazing and cropping area
Total Eden has the ability to design and install manual, semi-automated or fully automatic systems to suit the individual needs and budgets of our customers.

PUMPING & FILTRATION SYSTEMS
Nearly all commercial turf irrigation systems have a pumping and filtration component, so choosing the correct unit is crucial. Not only does it enable efficient and effective application of water, but over time it will save you time, and most importantly money.
Total Eden has a proven record in providing pumping and filtration solutions for all commercial turf applications. We‘re experienced in supplying small pumps for domestic uses through to the complete design, supply and installation of larger, more sophisticated systems used for pressurised orchard irrigation.
We stock solar, electric, petrol and diesel pumps from leading brands including Davey, Grundfos, Onga, Mono, Lowara and our very own brand, RainMaster.
PIPING & FABRICATION - POLYETHYLENE
Polyethylene pipe has many advantages over other pipeline materials such as concrete, PVC and steel. Its flexibility means that it doesn't have to be laid to grade and will ‘fit’ the given surface profile and absorb any ground movements. It compares well on price with other pipeline materials and is more cost effective to install. Polyethylene pipe can be fabricated to just about any shape, design and is much more durable than other materials with a longer lifespan.
Steep in experience and a nationwide service network makes Total Eden a leader in the field of design, supply and installation. Being one of the largest stockists of polyethylene pipeline in Australia means we can offer prompt, efficient supply and installation at the most competitive price. Furthermore we have the capacity to carry out on-site poly welding including butt, fusion and slug welding for polyethylene ranging in diameter from 90mm to 1,200mm.
STOCK WATERING & SOLAR TECHNOLOGY
In Australia’s remote and harsh environment, a reliable stock water system is critical to the well-being of your stock and for your peace of mind. Employing a quality stock water system that you can depend on, saves you time, money and effort.
