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.

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.

Irrigation System reviews in Douglasville

We bought a home with an installed system that hadn't been turned on in a couple of years. As the system wasn't purged before winter, there was some significant freeze damage. In addition, as the system must be 20+ years old, there were a couple of switches that weren't working, heads that were broken, etc.
The service was fantastic. ...More The owner of came personally with one of his technicians and spent more than an hour inspecting the system. Then his tech spent probably 4-5 hours making repairs. It couldn't all be done in one session (it really was extensive work) so they scheduled another visit. Again, the owner came out himself to help with a particularly tricky part.
In all cases, it was easy to schedule a service call, and on both occasions the team was right on time. The work was done extremely well...it was as if they were working on their own yard.
I will absolutely continue to use them on an ongoing basis.

Abracadabra did a fantastic job! They take pride in their work and it shows! We have a resort like backyard that all of our friends want to hang out in! Abracadabra pays attention to all of the details and makes sure the job is done right. They think of everything and go the extra mile to make it perfect. We will definitely use them again and have ...More recommended them to all of our friends.

It was not so well. Some of the sprinkling systems did not go where it needed to go. I think they didn't do well. The pricing was okay. The quality was not good. Their responsiveness was okay. I didn't have anything to do with them. They just came, did the job and left.

I would give him a fair rating. It is not exactly what I expected, the turning lid on the sprinklers head were not the ones that I was expecting from.They simply closed some sprinklers heads that were not operational anymore, I thought one of them was sprinkling, watering the yard. They have replaced the heads that were not functional but the guy who ...More came here did not know exactly what he was doing, he did not have all the proper heads, meaning the water that should be reaching all points from the lawn did not reach at all. The timing that he did on the remaining sprinkler heads were not successful. I did not like it at all, because I was expecting them to come in properly turning all these sprinkler heads, make sure it was watering all areas of the lawn, it's not watering in the correct amount.

We had a great experience with , , and the crew at Abracadabra Landscaping! We highly recommend them!
In the past, we had bad experiences with landscapers (one that did our front yard, one that did our pool) that were recommended to us by friends and neighbors. So we decided not to use either of ...More these landscapers again and decided to do our research on angie's list. We had two companies come out that were both highly rated. The quotes we received were vastly different. The first company we met with wanted to charge us a lot more for less work and cheaper quality materials. They did not seem very interested in our business, despite it being a large job. When we met with at Abracadabra, he gave us a much more reasonable quote and his vision for our yard matched ours. He even set us up with some of his former clients to see work they had done before. His former clients had nothing but positive things to say about Abracadabra, so we decided to go with them and have not regretted it.
Everyone at Abracadabra has been very professional, thorough, and courteous. They paid great attention to detail and the quality of work is very high. They do not subcontract any of the work. They are also very honest which was appreciated. even met with us to help pick out our plants and even met with us to pick out a fountain to help get us a discount on it. We did have a few plants die over the hot summer, but Abracadabra even came back and replaced them.
If we have any more landscaping to do, we will not go with another company. We will recommend Abracadabra to all our friends.

This is a follow up to the review from last week when I came home and the sprinkler head wouldn't turn off. It happened again during the night and came out the day we called. He fixed the valves on the zones that would not turn off (and checked all the other ones). Then he showed us where the turn off was for just the ...More sprinkler system (previously we didn't know where it was and had to turn off the water to the whole house) - it was in the ground out near the side walk where the main water turn off was (we never would have found it the other night with a flashlight!). Then he took a copy of the survey we had and marked every single zone's valve placement and put the exact measurements from the house so that we would never have to pay to have them located in the future. He was very professional. We will call them again in the spring to check all the heads and see about a low flow system.

About 15 years ago they installed an irrigation system at our home as a subcontractor to our landscape contractor. I used them for a time to serve the system but they were very unresponsive, did not return phone calls and rather unpleasant to deal with so I chose another contractor. Recently I have been having problems with the line voyage portion of ...More the lighting system which my present supplier is not licensed to work on. I tried to contact H2O as they installed it but they did not return my call for several days. I was not at home when they did but they said they would call back. They did not. Their voice mail suggests sending them a fax which I did and received no response. All of this confirms my initial experience with them and I would not recommend them. There are several better, more customer oriented contractors.
