"It was difficult to schedule. Had so many offers purchased was overwhelmed. I don't blame the company or Mr. , but Angie's List" for that. But once we could arrange a time he was very efficient and professional.

" is amazing! He was doing work at a neighbors house, and when I asked him a couple questions about my sprinkler system issue, he came over" to check it out. He had the parts to fix it and did it right then and there! He was so professional and knowledgeable, and took the time to explain to me what he was doing. He went above and beyond, and even found a leak in our crawlspace from our HVAC system, that we may never have known about unless he was there to help.

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.

When you've installed an irrigation system in your yard, make sure your family dog doesn't destroy it.

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.

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.

We were trying to have a new sprinkler system installed or have our current system redone.

After receiving several quotes for the above work, I hired and Irrigation to perform the work. Overall, their quote was fair but based on the fact that some individual items were higher that others, their total price could have been lower. That said, they were very professional and friendly. They where here and performed the ...More work exactly as they said they would so I would definitely hire them again.

I purchased a Hunter controller replacement with the idea of DIY, but then decided I needed professional help. I called Dr. Sprinkler, they scheduled me within a couple days. This was my first visit with Dr. Sprinkler. They sent out and his assistant . they installed the Controller, connecting up the ...More box and connecting the wires. They fixed a leak and a sprinkler head, and located my "lost valves". They were really very good, obviously knew what they were doing and had really great equipment to do the job. After they found my valves they marked them with flags. I was very impressed. I think the price was reasonable for the work completed.

and team called before hand to say they were running early. This was great for me since I had to take off work. I met them at the house. We spoke briefly and in detail about what I wanted done. I was missing a backflow preventer, the system was last used a few years ago, and I know I had some broken heads. I also wanted ...More the spray patterns checked. Within an hour and half I was back up and running. They were very professional. Worked quickly and efficiently. They had everything they needed on the truck with no running back and forth to the shop or office for parts. I was very impressed and very happy with the speed and quality of the repair. I will used them again and I recommend them to others.

Provider arrived on time and walked the yard with me to assess the situation. The two folks from replaced the sprinkler heads I was aware of and found a couple of additional heads that needed to be replaced. They also provided a solution to one area that needed additional watering and gave me two options which I could choose ...More based on need and price.
On price, their travel charge is calculated differently than other similar providers and I think it is a better deal but honestly didn't understand how it was different than the others. Also their hourly rate was higher than other providers by 10-15% but I think this may be an example of you get what you pay for. I have had much worse experience with cheaper providers and would use again simply because of the quality service for the price paid.

He arrived on time the day of the appointment and very professional.
When he arrived, he took a quick look at the backflow and said since it was a backflow problem, I'd need to contact a plumber. He couldn't do any work on it. Then, he charged us $85 for the service call!
I would have preferred that he told me on the phone BEFORE ...More coming out that if it was the backflow, I should call a plumber instead.
we've used his services previously without issue. However, this last instance was rather disappointing.
