"They were here on time. Worked quickly. Yard looked great when they were done. No dirt piles or anything. We will use them when we are ready for sprinklers in the back yard.

"The Well and pump have had significant issues since it was installed. The provider was often agitated he had to come out and repeatedly fix the various issues." The first well did not provide enough flow according to the provider and he asked me for additional fees to cover the permit for the second well. I graciously agreed and he assured me he would get it working. This has been the worst home purchase I have made since I've moved in. This year the pressure has failed and the sprinklers will not pop up, causing some areas to flood and others not to get watered at all. I have made several attempts to get the provider back out to fix the issue. He advised he has lost money on this job and refused to come our unless I give him some more money. He has failed to return messages and phone calls. I've tried to settle this professionally, but have now been forced to hire someone else to come in and clean up his mess! All my neighbors have no issues with their wells and they only have one.

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.

did a great job, was on time as planned and let me know he was on his way. Work was quick and professional, but took his time to ensure all the zones and settings were set properly.

Our system was installed 11 years ago and we knew that some heads were wearing out. and worked with me to identify problems and come up with possible solutions to get the most out of our system. After working on our house, they went over to a neighbors that had just moved in and spent more time helping ...More them get a system up and running that had not been used for several years. Neighbor was also pleased with the work and the reasonable price. Would definitely hire again.

is great. Showed up on time for initial estimate. Price was competitive. He diagnosed the problem, which was standing water in the back yard, and installed drains and sump pump. Problem solved. Also got my sprinkler system up and running. Very happy with results.

This is the busy season for irrigation systems, so I couldn't wait for him to come available, but it doesn't surprise me that he is busy with that type of responsiveness to his customers.

and arrived promptly and performed the work as requested. My sprinkler pump was recycling repeatedly. They reprimed the pump and bled the reservoir tank which solved the problem. They replaced 2 sprinkler heads to give better coverage to an area of the lawn which was not receiving enough water. They ...More checked the entire system and repaired a leak in a drip line. i have used them for all of my sprinkler needs for the past few years to include 2 major revisions to the irrigation system due to additions to the home. They are very professional, courteous and dependable. is excellent at laying out a sprinkler system which provides exceptional coverage for the lawn and plant areas. I highly recommend .

Provider did nothing. I called to have heads installed and water flow corrected. Service technician showed up only to tell me that he couldn't do anything without a 2nd tech being present. I called the office repeatedly to re-schedule (even after taking off work for the first call) and was told the next appointment was weeks out. The company only ...More sent the first tech to charge a service fee even though NO work had been completed. From reviewing the other reviews on this site and the BBB, this seems to be their practice of sending techs who do no work and have to reschedule only so that they are able to charge service fees.

Excellent. Was here at the appointed time, was very personable, made some very useful recommendations on improving the performance of my system. He reasonably priced and I would highly recommend him. I plan to use his service in the future.
