"A little back and forth on the phone initially with setting up a service appointment but once they got here and established a maintenance schedule, the technicians" were great. Worked from outside only to turn off for winter.

"We have been using and Sons since the Spring of 2014 after moving into a new home with a front and backyard lawn sprinkler system. This business" is family run and we have been pleasantly surprised that they have their act together and are both professional and friendly. During late Fall 2014 they made an unscheduled visit to our home. They rang the doorbell and I stepped out to find them waiting. They told me that a cold front was going to bring the temperature way down below freezing that week and if it was okay for them to flush out and shut down our sprinkler for the winter. Now it is critical to flush out a sprinkler system and shut it down before temperatures reach the freezing point as pipes (and sprinkler heads) will break with freezing and thawing. We were thrilled that they were proactive about coming out before the freeze and potentially saving us a lot of money the following Spring/Summer. This Spring 2015 I had a note on my calendar to contact them for a visit to prepare and test our lawn system. Before I could shoot off the email to schedule the visit, and Sons sent me an email asking when it would be convenient to stop by for the Spring maintenance work. That's being on top of things. Would recommend using this business without reservation.

Lawn Irrigation & Sprinkler Systems

Watering your lawn sounds simple enough, but many people don't do it correctly, even when they invest in automated irrigation systems. An inexpensive timer is the best investment whether you're using buried water lines or a garden hose.

Freezing temperatures are a major threat to your irrigation systems. Learn how to avoid costly repairs in the spring.

Installing an automatic irrigation system means you won't forget to water the lawn again. Learn about the cost, and whether you should hire a professional.

A common issue for lawns this spring will be damage from the 2010 damage. As we move into warmer weather and the lawns begin to come out of winter dormancy, those damaged areas will begin to stand out and could take one to two years to fully correct.

Try using native plants and creating natural habitats to make your lawn green without needing much water. (Photo courtesy of the National Arboretum)

It’s a simple concept: You want a beautiful lawn, but you also want to conserve water.

Cost depends of course on your locale, and distance to nearest pit or quarry that carries your desired type material. Be careful also where fill is coming from - you don't want someone pawning off a load of construction/demolition or land clearing debris or petroleum/chemicals contaminated waste on you.

 

Generally, in broad terms and excluding inner cities where delivery round-trip time is long due to distance from pits and slow traffic or very remote areas far from material source, the delivery charge or trip charge will normally run from $50-150 per trip, plus cost of material being hauled. Note you may be quoted just a per-ton (or per cubic yard for topsoil commonly) price based on a full truckload which would include trip charge and material charge. Others will quote separately, and some will forget to quote trip charge and only give material price. For instance, if you call and say "what does topsoil run per yard" they may say $30 - neglecting to say you will be charged a trip charge for the truck trip regardless of whether you buy 1 yard or 25 yards, so if $150 trip charge would be net $180/cy for 1 yard, but  $40/cy net if a 15 yard full truckload, for instance - so get clear on TOTAL cost for specific amount of material. I am always amazed at hearing hauling contractors gripe about rejected loads because when they showed up the homeowner did not realize there was a trip charge - and of course many times the driver dumps it BEFORE getting payment - BAD idea, as it costs more to get a loader in there to pick it up than to just give it to them without charging for the haul.

 

General round numbers for types of materials (and some areas may fall outside even these broad ranges) - common (unclassified) fill around $3-12/ton, sand/gravel around $5-15/ton, sand/gravel or crushed rock screened to a specific specification (like for clean drain rock or pea gravel or driveway base or structural fill or such) $12-30/ton, cobbles and crusher oversize (generally 2" plus material to about 12-18 inches - size varies by source) $15-40/ton, quarry spalls (mostly 1/2-6") with some fines and occaisonal up to 12 inch shot rock roughly about $15-40/ton, small riprap (6 inch to maybe 2 foot) $35-100/ton, large rirrap (2 foot plus) $50-250/ton, topsoil $5-50/cubic yard, decorative garden/yard rock $40-500/ton depending on fanciness and how far away imported from. Wide price range because some areas have numerous close sources, other have to go to great effort to produce certain sizes - especially with crushed highly durable rock and riprap, where it may be very hard to find good quality bedrock sources like in the lower Mississippi valley and areas of the midwest with heavy glacial sourced cover over the bedrock. Ditto to topsoil, where very cheap in some midwest areas with active subdivision development producing waste topsoil, to very expensive in some far northern and desert-like and near-beach areas where topsoil is virtually non-existent.

 

If you are going to be walking on this material, for kid play areas you want rounded river gravel or sand because it moves around and cushions falls better, but for walking areas/paths you generally want crushed materials so it does not move and scrunch around under your feet, though with decorative stone each particular type will only come one way - like rounded river rock, or angular reef limestone or lava rock.

 

Topsoil, in areas which a choice of sources, you need to specify if you want loam/loess (silty, sandy with little organics), clayey, peat/organic rich, or blended (organic plus sand) to reduce packing and caking and improve drainage.

 

Typical load size - small individual hauling companies haul 1/2-2 tons/load in small pickup or trailer loads, common dump truck sizes are around 8-10 ton capacity for single axle, 12-15 tons double rear axle, and 18-25 tons for belly or tilt dump trailers - and some contractors have "pup" trailers than haul about another 8-10 tons on same trip if needed. However, in urban areas weight restriction may prevent full loading - ditto during spring breakup in areas with road weight restriction to protect roads that are thawing out.

 

Rough BALLPARK estimating numbers - about 1.3-1.5 tons per dumped (uncompacted) cubic yard except for topsoil, which can run 0.8-1.3 tons per cubic yard depending on moisture and organics content.

 

Excavation contractor is AL search category I think and I believe I saw a Topsoil category once - but if you google you can find Topsoil and Gravel/Rock haulers, then check them against AL for reviews. For small quantities (a truckload or two) of topsoil, or specialty landscaping rocks, then a landscaping/plant center is sometimes your best source, though pricier for common materials than from a local topsoil or gravel pit or rock quarry, becdause they have apid to have it hauled to them, then have to pay to have it scooped up and hauled to you,plus their own profit and overhead costs so plant centers commonly about double direct from pit costper ton or yard.

Setting up initial appointment involved quite a bit of phone tagging with , who I believe is the owner. When we finally had a time set up, the guys came out and did a fine job. Even found a broken sprinkler head from all the snow shoveling of previous winter and offered to fix it (for a cost) which was reasonable I thought. ...More Overall satisfied with their work. Although, I swear I never see my water goes off at the set timer, but since my plants didn't die this past summer, I'm assuming the sprinkler is doing what it was programmed to do by .

They closed my system with a two-day notice. I thought the price was extremely inexpensive. I like that they're responsive and that they know the system well since they installed about 10 years ago.

designed and installed the sprinkler system in our yard in 2006. The system has had numerous issues and they have been out over the years to make repairs. This year we have a major leak and we called to schedule service. We had to wait weeks for the initial appointment. The serviceman ( ) was unable ...More to find the problem and ended his visit saying "I don't know what else to do." I called and asked them to send someone more experienced, maybe the person who designed the system. I waited 10 days for the appointment. During this time, the sprinklers were shut off and so was the fountain in my yard that relies on the sprinkler system to run. They sent Rich, who was great, but he arrived at 1:00. He found part of the problem and fixed it. At 3:30 he announced that he wasn't done, but he had to leave because the boss won't pay him for one minute past 3;30. He said he would come back two days later at 8:00. He never arrived. When I called the office, they said he would come the next day. After waiting for 2 days, I finally got on the phone. Hes not easy to reach. The girls in the office made it clear that he doesn't like to be bothered by customers. He is hysterical. He's a grumpy old man. He said he doesn't want to work on our problem any more because it's too hard to solve. I reminded him that he designed this system, but clearly he does not stand behind his own work. When I spoke to my landscaper, a big well known north shore firm, they said they used to use and , but they never do anymore because of this type of thing. Go elsewhere

Prior to this project, our back yard had a large deck with a hot tub which was removed and replaced with the plan. After spending a great deal of tie inquiring about our needs and assessing our design asthetics, presented us with two different drawings (both of which were fabulous). Once we selected ...More a design, he provided us with his recommendations for plants and trees thoroughly explaining the reason for his recommendations and providing photos of what the mature plants/trees would look like.

I can truly say that we have invested very little time and money in maintenance. serviced our landscaping with spring/fall clean-ups and irrigation maintenance. All the work was done in a professional manner and using high quality materials. When minor glitches did occur, we found him to be an excellent problems solver and everything was done to our satisfaction. Our real estate agent indicated that the addition of the landscaping to our home probably increased the value of the property beyond what we paid for the work so we were even more delighted!
