"This is the second time
and his team from
Irrigations has to been to my house to install my irrigation system. He" came the first time when I had a large project to overhaul my system.
replaced the whole systems for the price he quoted even with it being a little more extensive than he originally thought. The system works great!! When I got ready for phase 2 of the system there was no one else to call but
from
. He came to the house to discuss the job and gave me a quote and a date that he could come and do the installation. He came 4 days early and finished the job under his quote. He did an outstanding job, cleaned up everything and the system works great. When I get ready for phase 3 it will be
again from
to do the job. Great guy and he does the job right the first time.

"Several heads were not working or were watering the street rather than my yard.
checked all of them, and replaced several that were worn" out, and redirected the stream of water where needed. My irrigation system works great now. All work was completed promptly at a fair 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.

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

Whether going with low-drip irrigation or a different type of grass, you can have a great lawn with minimal runoff.

Landscaping experts say eco-friendly organic products may take a year or more to transform grass, but the result leads to lower water bills and healthier lawn.

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 Barrington

Excellent.
Barrington Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
, the company rep, came out, measured, climbed in the attic to determine where the water connection should run (the older system ran off a hose bib) and provided me with a detailed estimate in a couple of days. the crew came at the appointed date, and went right to work. No horseplay, just true professionalism at work. I had initial misgivings about the attic water connection, but all went well. I felt sorry for the guys up there as it was an extremely hot day, but it was all done in one day, as promised.

came out a couple of days later to walk "the field" with me and make necessary sprinkler head adjustments. I AM EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH THE WORK PERFORMED, AND THE CONTINUED RESPONSIVENESS OF THE STAFF!!!

Due to summer workload, he came out and performed the work. He had to make several trips due to equipment, needed parts, electrical items, etc. all was done well.

This was probably the best experience I have had with any work being done on my house. They arrived EARLY, and didn't come to the house until the time the appointment was scheduled for. They allowed me to explain the problem FULLY, and then waited to give their suggestions. They went above and beyond the call, and actually repaired our leak in the pump - which other landscapers told me they had fixed. They also reset the system, and explained what other services they could provide in the future - for what cost, all without forcing or making me feel as though I had to commit at that exact time.

I purchased this service for my mother and heard
Barrington Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
was awesome! He arrived at the agreed time, completely inspected her system and diagnosed the problems she was having. He explained everything in terms she could understand, made the necessary repairs at a fair price. Mom lives in Sun City and we will call him again should his services be required again. Mom will be going to the Sun City Community Association office and giving "two thumbs up" in the CA vendor book. Thanks

I had been having issues with some of the heads on sprinkler not turning in one area and the water pressure in another area was so bad that I was having to hand water daily. I had another company come out and they fixed a couple breaks in the line but it did not help much. I was resigned to having to have my system rebuilt as I had been told that twice over the last couple years. The technician found the issue quickly and it turns out it was a solenoid that was not working. An inexpensive part and just a bit of labor and problem was solved. He replaced a few of my sprinkler heads as old ones were worn out and did not turn all the time. I was so happy with the service, his knowledge and the results that I had them come back the next day and replace the rest of my heads, move a few and cap some unnecessary ones to improve the coverage. Now I do not have any areas that are not getting water. I am very pleased. My sprinklers have never worked better and for once I did not feel like I was being talked into an expensive repair. Very trustworthy company. I would recommend highly and will definitely only use them in the future.

The tree roots and the extensive digging were an unexpected expense but it was a fair assessment of what needed to be done. So I was satisfied with that. Also, he kept me informed as they "dug into" the problem, which I appreciated. And it was a very hot day, so I made sure they stayed hydrated. Both were nice, friendly professionals who got the job done right.
