We can install a new irrigation system or maintain your existing one. We can also provide service for winterizing by shutting down your system, blowing out lines and preparing for freezing temperatures. In the Spring, we can start your system back up and provide maintenance throughout the year. We will adjust your watering times and lengths according to the seasons and your plants watering needs.

Irrigation Saves Water, Time & Money.
Unless you enjoy lugging around a heavy garden hose that never quite reaches your intended destination, you might want to consider a home irrigation system. Irrigation is not only time saving, it also helps to conserve water and money. For example, watering an area with a hose uses a large amount of water for a short amount of time. Just like a heavy rain, water puddles up in areas where it may not be needed and can run off or evaporate. The water may not even reach your intended destination or plants. Irrigation targets specific areas and delivers the correct amount of water at designated intervals so that the soil has an opportunity to absorb the water. Water reaches the roots and your plants thrive. The added benefit of irrigation is that you will actually use less water and by default, save money.
Types of Irrigation:
Used for larger areas such as lawns. One advantage of a sprinkler system is that it can be programmed to start at a specific time so as to minimize evaporation.
Originally used by farms, drip irrigation works by slowly dripping water onto the soil at the base of plants. Depending upon the design, watering can be timed and certain areas can receive varying amounts of water as needed by the specific plants. Drip irrigation cuts down on evaporation and run off.
Why Save Water?
- Water is a finite resource—even though about 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by water, less than 1 percent is available for human use.
- Each American uses an average of 100 gallons of water a day at home.
- We can all use 30 percent less water by installing water-efficient fixtures and appliances.
- The average household spends as much as $500 per year on their water and sewer bill and can save about $170 per year by installing water-efficient fixtures and appliances.
