"Went great. is the gentleman who serviced our system. Very knowledgeable and great to work with. Showed up early and went right to work." Would definitely recommend them and will be using them again in the future.

"We had scheduled a service visit several weeks out, but I was delighted to get a phone call from , saying that he had found an opening in" his schedule and could come earlier. He came right away, installed the new device, inspected our lines, and found and repaired a few cuts and other problems. I won't use anybody else for irrigation. I have absolute confidence that Arteno's will do a professional job, charge a competitive price, offer helpful advice, and not try to sell me something I don't need.

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.

Irrigation System reviews in Cincinnati

Serviceman was prompt and fairly quick. Replaced two broken rotor heads and three pop-up spray heads. Adjusted spray on a few that were overspraying. He even suggested to relocate one head a couple feet away from bushes so it could get a better pattern, which he only charged about $10 to do even though it took him more time and ...More effort. He was also able to troubleshoot a faulty zone that hadn't worked in years and located the broken valve for it buried out in the yard, although he didn't have replacement parts for it and had to schedule another appointment to replace that valve. However, the valve replacement wasn't part of the original tune-up service request anyway. All this was accomplished in 1.5 hours.

The crew was outstanding in its professionalism, behavior and interaction with the client. They performed the work efficiently and to spec. My only complaint, and for one who doesn't get around as well as he used to not a trivial one, is that they left my good sized brick terrace and driveway awash in mud caked footprints when they left. As ...More there was a hose at both locations, it would have taken only a few minutes to wash away the wet dirt; by the time I noticed and got to it, the mud was dried not entirely removable by a stream of water.
I would definitely use them again. I suggest you tell them not to leave before a quick inspection takes place.

Have dealt with many irrigation companies over past 20 years. This company restored my faith that a responsible and reliable company really exists. They were tremendous communicators, very professional and did high quality work. They now service my entire system. A real tribute to their trade.

The description list of the work performed by is really not an adequate reflection of how involved this project really was and how hard and worked over three (1 full, 2 half) days. This sprinkler system is around 25 years old and needed to be fixed and updated starting with moving ...More the backflow out of our finished basement. is a certified plumber and expertly handled moving the backflow outside without any mess or water leakage in the basement. And, at my request, he dug a 6 ft trench outside so that the backflow would be by a bush. It was a hot August day and a lot of work digging a deep trench, adding pipe, etc. took a lot of care in his work and clearly paid attention to details (ie. putting booties over his shoes whenever he was in the house which I appreciated). and worked on the outside sprinkler lines, heads, valves, etc They had to locate the breaks, again a lot of digging was involved, pull out damaged line, replace with new, etc. Then move on to replacing heads, valves, fixing wiring, moving heads, etc. It really was a time consuming, involved project. Both and were very polite, professional, punctual, took time to explain details to us and we were very pleased with the quality of their work. Everyone from was polite and professional - from the estimate to work completion. We will definitely have them continue to maintain our sprinkler system.

It turns out I had made a mistake in programming and was very helpful in explaining how it should be done and offering suggestions on watering times/frequencies. He also discovered an error in the wiring so an entire zone was not being activated. After he left, I discovered a leak in a dripline that had not been apparent ...More on the initial service call. Another service tech came the next day and repaired it and 2 more leaks that were found. He left repair couplings and showed me how to use them in case more leaks cropped up. I felt the cost of the repairs were very reasonable and the service was exceptional. I have found my irrigation system specialists and look forward to a long relationship with them.

Knowledgeable guy who showed up. Had difficulty in understanding our monitoring system but figured it out. Turned on the water to the sprinkler system. Checked all sprinker heads. Replaced one for $20....that was not included in price.
Overall a decent experience. No pressure sales to buy anything more.

I needed a new backflow preventer, and they provided a model that I can disconnect and take inside for the winter. Brilliant! They started my irrigation system, checked each zone and repaired a couple of leaks. I'm having them come back to split one of my irrigation zones into two. The installer made it far too long. I wish had had ...More install the system. They pointed out things they would have done differently, some of which I will have them fix. They definitely will service my system from now on.
