Choosing the Right Irrigation Company

Maintaining a healthy lawn doesn’t just happen by chance. A regular maintenance schedule that includes mowing, fertilizing, overseeding, aeration, de-thatching, and of course irrigation, goes a long way to making sure you have the best lawn possible.

An intelligently designed custom irrigation system can dramatically improve the look and health of your landscaping. But choosing the right irrigation company for your residential and commercial needs can be confusing. Here are some of the questions you should ask yourself, and potential irrigation companies before signing on the dotted line.

Seek Out Professionals
Irrigation is a precise science. The skill and experience required to design and install a custom in-ground irrigation system is best when left to the professionals. These folks have spent years studying and refining their techniques in order to offer their clients the very best irrigation systems possible. To make sure that you are employing a licensed professional, check that they offer the credentials associated with the industry. To find a list of licensed landscaping and irrigation professionals in your area, refer to this resource. The association logo to be on the lookout for is the Certified Irrigation Contractor logo available through the Irrigation Association.

What To Ask Your Irrigation Company
Winterization: Living in the Burlington area, you are only going to making use of your sprinkler system during the growing season. For the rest of the calendar year your in-ground sprinkler system needs to be protected from the elements. Before embarking on a project, ask the company what winterization services are included in the installation. If it is not included in the installation, make sure you know what fees will be associated with the process.

Warranty: An in-ground sprinkler system is subject to unexpected obstacles. Animals, erosion, inclement weather, and general wear and tear can all take a toll on your in-ground sprinkler system. Before choosing a company, ask about the warranty. Find out about the length of the warranty and exactly what elements of the irrigation system are included. It’s best when you have the warranty in writing, so make sure to get it all down on paper!

The Benefits of An In-Ground Irrigation System
An in-ground irrigation system has dozens of benefits. It reduces the amount of time and effort you need to expend watering your lawn. It ensures that your entire lawn is watered correctly the first time, guaranteeing optimal coverage and watering depth. Furthermore, weather sensing sprinkler systems take into account natural rainfall and precipitation and water your lawn accordingly, meaning you never waste a drop.
