How to Choose the Right Irrigation Professional

If you've been considering having an inground irrigation system installed in your property, you've probably heard the following phrases time and time again:

  • Hire an expert
  • Get a professional installation
  • This is not a do-it-yourself project

While we agree with this advice, it doesn't give you the information you need to find the right inground irrigation professional. That's why we've put together a list of tips to help you find an irrigation expert who will get the job done quickly, efficiently and most importantly, the right way.

Ask About Their Services

When you reach out to a professional irrigation company, make sure you ask about all the services they offer. Do they do more than just design and install systems? Specifically, you are looking to see if they offer maintenance and warranties. If a professional irrigation company will not service their own work, then you should be hesitant to use their design and installation services.

Getting a Quote

A trustworthy company will be happy to provide you with an estimate or a quote for the installation of an irrigation system. In order to do so, they'll need some specific information about your property, which often includes a trip out to your home to understand your property's unique needs (soil condition, plant types, water pressure etc.) to decide what design will work best for those needs.

Before Breaking Ground

When looking for a professional irrigation company, make sure you ask about their installation process. Before a professional breaks ground on your property you'll want to make sure they've located utility lines such as hydro, gas and cable. If the professional company you are speaking to does not schedule a service to locate utility lines before breaking ground, you will be leaving yourself open to a variety of unnecessary complications during the installation process, which is guaranteed to take more time and cost much more money.

Minimal Disruption

The whole point of installing an inground irrigation system is to make sure your lawn gets the maintenance it needs to be healthy and beautiful. So if someone has installed an irrigation system in your property and has destroyed your landscaping in the process, they've done something wrong. A professional irrigation company has the knowledge and equipment necessary to provide in installation with minimal disruption to your plants, gardens or other landscape features. Make sure to ask about this upfront - if they can't guarantee minimal disruption to your existing landscaping during the installation, it could be a notable red flag.
