How to Select a Commercial Burlington Sprinkler Systems Service

Your business’s landscape paints an initial picture of your company.  Is it lush, green, and well-manicured?  Or are the plants dying of thirst and haphazardly planted?   Your customers will learn a lot about your approach to your company from the look of your front yard. 

However, as a business ourselves, we understand how running the company can take priority to keeping it looking pretty.  That’s why it makes sense to delegate that duty to a local lawn care company that can provide everything you need – including Burlington sprinkler systems.  But you don’t want the first impression of your company to be given to just anybody.  Here are a few criteria you should look for when considering an irrigation service provider.

Liability Concerns
Workplace accidents do happen and you don’t want to be held liable for any injuries occurring while installing your Burlington sprinkler systems.  In Ontario, irrigation contractors are required to pay Workers Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) premiums on behalf of their employees in the event of a workplace injury.  If you hire a company that is not in compliance with this law, you are liable in the event of workplace injuries.  This is not something you want to leave to chance.

Do They Know Their Stuff?
Ask to see proof of association memberships, such as Landscape Ontario, the Irrigation Association, or Certified Irrigation Contractor Status.  This will ensure that you are hiring the best people possible, who will adhere to a strict code of ethics.  When asking for an irrigation contractor, ask whether they have a CIC designation or if there’s a CIT on staff.

Scope of Services Offered
As is the case with any shopping experience, you don’t want to have to go to multiple locations if you can avoid it.  When checking out providers for your Burlington sprinkler systems, see if any company’s also offer lawn care and landscaping services as well. 

In the case of Nutri-Lawn’s commercial services, not only do we offer landscaping services, but we install and maintain irrigation systems as well.  In addition, we are affiliated with Nite Time Décor and Christmas Décor, allowing us to keep your exterior looking bright and beautiful during any season.

Does Winterization Come With That?
If you want your sprinkler system to last until next spring, it will need to be prepped for winter in the late fall.  Ask your contractor to specify what the winterization procedures and fees are.  Ensure this is completely clear before signing any contracts.

How Much Will the Burlington Sprinkler Systems Cost?
Irrigation is an investment, so to a certain degree, you will get what you pay for.  However, you don’t want to install a sprinkler system only to have your water bill skyrocket.  While the cost of your irrigation system will vary depending on the size and scope of the project, we’re doing what we can to keep your bottom-line low. 

At Nutri-Lawn, we include rain sensors in every installation to ensure that your landscape will not be overwatered.  If the sensors sense rain or moisture, the sprinklers simply won’t run.  Not only does this keep your water bill in check, but it also prevents your landscape from the death and diseases that go with overwatering.  The right amount of watering will keep your lawn looking professional.
