"Owner was easy to reach via phone/text. Came and checked our existing lawn sprinkler system, added new pipe and spray heads to fully cover our lawn. Work was done" very quickly and you cannot see where he dug in the ground. Price was very good, we will use again in the future for any additional irrigation needs.

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.

We had to go on a list but it was worth the wait. He and his team are courteous, professional and efficient. He explained everything he was doing and always gave me an option to perform/not perform a repair. When I called him to ask about the backflow, I didn't have to wait once I explained it was overdue.

It was a fairly major job, though I have no way of comparing it to others, so I don't know how the price would compare. Despite requesting it, he never gave me the detailed breakdown of charges. He did a rapid calculation in pencil, and when I asked to use my copy machine to photocopy these details, he said not to worry, that he would send me a statement. After many requests, the statement he finally gave me didn't give any breakdown of the different charges.
The main part of the job seemed to go pretty well. But I asked for an additional irrigation head. I had some health problems for awhile. He would call and say he was 15 minutes away, and could he come do the job. I wasn't up to it, so refused him several times. He never scheduled anything ahead of time.
His English is very hard to understand, but BOTH my husband and I understood him to say that he would bury this new line 12 inches and that it would not interfere with my gardener digging a flower bed. Finally I just said yes to get it over with. He talked nicely with me while his assistant did the job. I thought it should have taken much longer, but wasn't up to questioning it.
My gardener said the connecting pipe was right at the surface of the soil, some of it not even covered.

claimed that he didn't say anything about burying the line. I disagreed. He finally just let the extra $150 charge go since neither of us was happy. I felt as though the $800 was probably a good bit for the job anyway.
Overall, both my husband and I liked

Awesome company. The office staff called within minutes of me submitting info on Angies list. With the crazy water shortage scares I was very pleased within a few hours they had someone to my house. On the phone I had even said main unit was almost 20 yrs old so I was open to replacing it. Nope!!! they are very honest. Sprinkler issue ended up being my neighbors artificial turf leaking water from its sprinklers tapped off below. Valve.. even though they all look old only one needed repair so only one got fixed!
Price for same day repair was less than my normal garden charges to look at my sprinklers. So glad I called these people first!
They will be my go to sprinkler people from now on. So nice to have a water issue totally resolved from phone call to installation of new parts all finished
in a few hours!!!!

I THINK IT WENT VERY WELL THERE WAS MINIMAL UPDIGGING IN THE MY YARD THEY, WERE CAREFUL/ ABLE TO REPLACE THE ORIGINAL GRASS. The pipeing they used was put under the ground with only a entry dig and a exit dig. By this I didn't have long trenches of my lawn being uprooted.The areas they previously told would be covered was done so. They were both very courteous and knowledgeable with more than a fair price!. That I call Professional!

actually worked on this project all day every day with his team and they were always at our house by 8:30 AM and worked until almost dark every day. Each day when they left, they swept the driveway and cleaned up the areas where we might possibly use overnight. They did really very labor intensive work and were always friendly and respectful of our property. The drainage for our house is very challenging and

I am confused about the $49 cost of a tune-up. I did not request an estimate or analysis. I wanted my heads replaced and assumed I would pay for the cost of the heads, if needed. I can set my own box.
