"I initially called Active for an emergency sprinkler line repair and the receptionist was especially kind and apologized for not being able to perform the repair" quickly. I understood as my issue was a last minute emergency. I learned that Active also does landscaping so I asked about this service and
said he would be over within a couple of days to review the landscaping and additional irrigation needs.
shows up as scheduled and we spend over an hour talking about the services requested.
was friendly and seemed knowledgeable. Said he would follow up with a quote in a day or two. Over a week later, and since I had already lost time waiting for the proposal I reluctantly called to find out the status. Again a friendly voice at the other end of the line apologized, said she would find out the details and would call me back. Never heard from her and I tried one last time (yes, I know, foolish) and all I got was a business is closed message - even during business hours! So here I am starting all over again after taking time off of work and literally waiting weeks for nothing. Please Angie, tell me why this business has an A rating? I am losing faith in the paid for service if this is the type of company you put at the top of the list.

"
and his crew did an excellent job! Work was started and completed during the week specified in the quote. He kept in contact with us throughout" the entire process. It was so nice working with a company that you didn't have to call repeatedly to see when they were going to show up! It was a difficult yard to do given the mature age of our trees and their extensive root system; but they made it work. We have a 7 zone system, 6 for grass and one for flower beds (yea!).
thought through the process so completely that it gives us more coverage and flexibility than we even expected. I was so pleasantly surprised to find the seven zone boxes placed in a flower bed beside the garage. I've seen others taking up lawn space but mine looks like little decorations in my bed.
is extremely professional but treated us like family. Not only would we recommend
to our friends, we are already trying to think of something else we can get them to do for us!

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 were looking for a sprinkler system and got a few quotes. We decided to go with
Auburn Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
even though they were a little more expensive based on their warranty and their proposal. They provided a detailed proposal including a drawing of the zones and approximate # of sprinkler heads (which not all companies will provide). The work crew showed up 10 minutes early for the installation. They completed everything earlier than expected and were very clean. We had a final walk-through that required a new sprinkler head installation and adjustments to two others. The technician took care of the issues right away before completing the walk-through. Everything is working great. Overall they provided excellent service and I would highly recommend this company.

made time to add us the next evening to his already full schedule when a broken sprinkler head prevented us from using the system. Another company on Angie's list had told us their first availability was in 2 weeks, 2 other companies did not return messages, and a third had a full voice mail box.

was running later than expected, but he called to notify me. When
he arrived he made adjustments to all my sprinkler heads and flagged
those that needed replacing. My main concern was a zone I hadn't been using since I had noticed a leak. He systematically went through that zone and found the leak; removed the tree roots that were the culprit and repaired the irrigation line.

I am not pleased at all with the service or workmanship of the
Auburn Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
& Irrigation Company.
DO NOT do business with this company. Shortly after the sprinkler system was installed, my front lawn was
flooded due to a leak. My first water bill was over $300, but the company compensated me for the lost and supposedly...More /> fixed the leak. The next water bill over $800 and the company refused to fix any underground leaks. I live in the Beechtree Community in Upper Marlboro, MD. The lots are so small I can look into my neighbor’s house from various areas of my home. They claim due to the size of my lot, it takes a lot of water to cover my lawn. This company is bad and I am considering taking legal action. Friends and neighbors with sprinkler systems do not have water bills over $200 and I got stuck with one over $800. DO NOT do business with this company.

Was REALLY happy with
Auburn Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
. Originally had another company check the system. They basically couldn't get it going. Israel returned my call very quickly and was able to go out to the property within several days. He got the system going within about 45 minutes or so and kept cost to a minimal. Seems honest and knows his stuff when it comes to irrigation repair. I HIGHLY recommend him.
