"Excellent communication. Our first appointment got cancelled due to heavy rain and I was notified well in advance. Caps got us rescheduled on a day which was good" for me. They arrived well within the one hour time frame I was given. The young man was not familiar with my older Rainbird controller, but I was happy to turn on each of the 7 zones as needed. I walked around with him and told him of my concerns. He made recommendations. From Cap's notes, he
up a proposal which came to $100. I agreed to all of the repairs which included replacing several heads, replacing an entire pop up that was broken off (I had the new popup) and installing rubber tubing to water a large potted Bougainvilla that I have had to hand water every few days. The service man did not have the tubing on the truck but he made a trip to pick up what was needed and did not have to come back at a later date. Good customer service.

"In a word, excellent. I've used
's for both drainage and sprinkler work before, and as expected, they did an excellent job. The" proposal was well-written, and
of
's came out and went over the project with me, ensuring that I clearly understood what was to be done and why. He shot the area with a transit, to ensure that he would have the proper "fall" between the origin and end of the drain line. He estimated that the job would take about 1-1/2 days, which turned out to be accurate. The job was particularly challenging because the drain line had to go through a lot of underground utilities (electric, gas, cable, and water) that service both me and my neighbor, concentrated in a small area at the front of the property.
's crew hand-dug everything (no trenching machine was used) and had no problem navigating the utilities, which had been clearly marked at
's request in advance of the job. The crew (of five) showed up on-time the morning work was to begin, and worked very hard all day, until early evening. They did a very neat job of hand-digging all the necessary trenches, core-drilling the
, installing the six catch basins, and piping everything up. They put all the dirt back in place and replaced the sod, which they had preserved. When they were finished, everything had been restored and looked virtually the same as before. There was no damage to the lawn or landscaping. Once the grass fills in (over the trenched area) you'll never know anything was done! The workers was very courteous and neat, cleaning up the job site at the end of each workday. When they were finished, they removed all the flags (placed there by the utility locator). After the job was complete,
came back out to do a walk-through with me, to ensure that I was completely satisfied, and to test the drain to ensure that it worked as designed. It did. All in all, I was well-pleased, and would have no hesitation recommending
's to others, or using them again myself. Regarding price... I note that
's has received an overall grade of "B" in that area. I had this job bid by three different companies.
's and one of the other two companies were nearly identical in price, and the third company was considerably lower. I reviewed all three bids, and in the end, had no problem deciding on
's to do the job. They also were the only company to provide me with a reference (in my neighborhood, incidentally), and that reference gave them a very positive recommendation. As to price, yes, it wasn't cheap. But the old adage applies: you get what you pay for; the bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of a low price is forgotten. Consequently, I've rated
's "A" in all categories, including price.

Lawn irrigation and sprinklers

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.

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.

It went great. I had a major problem in 2 of 4 sprinkler zones.

efficiently diagnosed the problems and made the repairs. He is a pleasant person. He showed me where the problems were and checked all the zones with me after the work was done to make sure I was satisfied. I will keep his number for next summer.

We were extremely pleased with the job the guys did from Caps. They came out on time, in fact were earlier than expected and let us know ahead of time, and they did a great job. I really liked the two guys who came to the house. They checked all the sprinklers and discovered we had a bad timer. They replaced the timer, readjusted all the sprinkler heads, checked all the zones and taught me how to use the new, simpler system.

The provider did not bother to show up at the first appointment. I had to call. He said wouldn't make it. The next day they came to look and give the estimate of $1000 since they still did not know what all parts were needed, labor quoted at $100/hr. On the day of the repair they said we were first on the list and that we needed to be available by 8am. It was nearly 10 when they showed up. 2 guys came and worked for 2 hours. Then we were presented with a 1 line bill - sprinkler repair $1,000. We asked for details and the next itemization showed labor at $120/hr and hiked parts cost. So basically, they jacked up prices to meet the $1000 estimate. We have paid the bill, but I want other angie's list users to know about the experience. All I can say is that is has been a couple of weeks and the sprinkler system is working. So if your time means nothing to you and money is no object, then this is the provider for you!

I called

due to their good reviews on Angie’s List. I had a problem with one of my valves on my irrigation system and a person named
Hooksett Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
showed up to troubleshoot and hopefully resolve this situation.
Hooksett Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
arrived a bit earlier than identified but that wasn’t any problem for my husband and me. After

performed his testing, troubleshooting and process of elimination, he found that the problem was a defective controller. Fortunately, he had one in his truck and was able to replace it right then and there.

then tested the new controller to ensure it worked the same way the older one worked (so all the valve control numbers stayed the same as what we previously had) and then demonstrated to us how the new controller works. During the entire time,

was very professional, efficient at performing his job and friendly. After he was done,

even went so far as to ask me if I locked the cellar door to the outside which I thought was very considerate of him. In the course of troubleshooting, he had to dig up the problem valve box but before he left, he smoothed out and leveled the dirt around the valve boxes. My husband and I were very happy with the service provided by

and

and will definitely call them for any future needs. It was clear to us that the irrigation system now works better overall because the water pressure through the sprinkler heads seems to have improved. We highly recommend this company.

We scheduled an appointment with this company two weeks in advance for 8am on a Tuesday to have drainage system installed in our backyard. They did not show up at 8am so I called around 9am and my husband called later around 10:30am both to ask if they were still coming. Each time we were assured that our messages would be passed along to
Hooksett Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
, the owner, and that he would call us back as soon as possible. By 2pm we had yet to hear from anyone and we did not have anyone come to the house for the service that was scheduled. It's one thing to be late, that's expected with most service companies, but it's another thing not to return any phone calls and cause the customer to question whether the service provider is still planning on providing the service. By 2pm, with zero communication from
Hooksett Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
& Landscaping, we decided to hire a different company. This company has a policy that half of the cost of service must be paid when scheduling the appointment and the remaining half must be paid once the service is complete. This company was extremely responsive when we were scheduling the appointment and trying to pay for the service.

Ok, I suppose. His diagnosis was that my system is completely hosed and needs a complete rebuild. The home was built in early 1980's and it certainly had its flaws for how the irrigation system was designed, but $3.5K off-the-cuff verbal estimate for a complete overhaul was not really what I was looking for. And there really was no tune-up associated with this offer. Kind of like paying 30 bucks for someone to come over and telling you how bad your system is, and it has no hope. Turns out all was needed was some tweaking, which I did myself and that sufficed for what I was looking for. So am actually thankful for the hopeless
Hooksett Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
of the diagnosis as it kind of inspired me to do it myself.

These guys are great to work with. We had some problems with the sprinkler system installed by the previous homeowners, which were mainly caused by too many sprinkler heads with not enough water pressure to lift the heads at the end of a couple zones. The guys came out, checked the whole system for pressure, leaks, and efficiency, and ultimately suggested replacing a few of the heads with more efficient versions that require about 50% of the normal pressure to operate. By replacing those and adjusting the spray pattern on almost the entire system, we now have complete coverage of our entire yard.
They also replaced our old mechanical control unit with a digital one (at our request, they never tried to up-sell us on anything). They were very knowledgeable and helpful about how to set the zones to ensure our lawn received the correct amount of water without getting so much runoff. Our sprinklers run 3 different times for 5-7 minutes in the morning with about an hour between each cycle. It gets the water deeper into the soil without soaking it to the point of runoff at any time.
We have had a couple issues since they did the work, such as a head clogging up, and they were out the next day to take care of it for us. I would absolutely use them again for any irrigation needs.
