"There was a lot of work needed to be done in order to get to the irrigation lines due to many tree roots. They clearly had all the right tools to get the work done. The work went well.

"Cost per service was $230 and $213 to service two different properties. We have had problems with both systems since they were serviced. At the first property our" tenant told us the sprinkler head for zone 6 was not coming up and to repair a broken sprinkler head. We called
who was
and told us they could not come out for 2 weeks. They finally did and repaired the broken sprinkler head, but did not fix the issues with zone 6. I hired another firm who found a large leak in broken pipe in zone 6 and replaced it promptly for half the cost. The other property's water costs were much higher since
had serviced the system It turns out
set the sprinkler system to go off 4 times during the day rather than the City of Dallas mandate of twice per day. We had the system reset.
was expense and there is a long wait time if your issues persist. They do not seem to stand behind their work.

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.

they were busy -- and yet they fit we in-- which was GREAT
they were timely-- even though they were busy, i did not feel left out in the cold
yet -- this is a father son team, and it was clear they were on each others nerves -- the bickering was embarrassing to watch. once, OK. they were exhausted; twice, ok -- they were busy and they worked me in
but it was very embarrassing for me to even watch them
the work was fine. the price was fine. the professionalism -- not fine

Originally had one section of sprinklers not working. Called
Manteca Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
to come and check and they figured out what the issue was... stuck valve or incorrect setting on the timer can't actually remember which one it was. Had them also fix a pipe that was raised in the garden and spraying.
The guy was very professional, told me everything as he went. Had to go get my pipe because he didn't have that on the truck. Very helpful and intelligent. I thought that were good and I would trust them to help again.

Very disappointed that we didn't receive a call telling us they were running late or asking us to reschedule. It was a Monday and we had other things to be doing besides waiting around for no one to show up!

Arrived on time and explained steps they would do to first diagnose sprinkler system issues, then evaluate system and schedule. Identified several stations with poor wiring causing issues. Identified approximately 12 sprinkler heads that should be replaced and recommended schedule to meet city allowances and lawn needs. Very professional and efficient and considerate!

Everything went very smooth. First they were kind enough to push my schedule to the end of day so that I could take care of some pressing business. They fixed the sprinklers that were running while one of the team searched for the
Manteca Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
and burried valves that needed to be found and repaired. After locating, digging and surveying the issues, they discovered that we were not up to code and that the system was now required to have a back flow prenvetor to keep water contamination out of city water a 2003 or so revisiion. My system was a 1993 installation. Using a professional and licensed company comes with a requirement that everything be done correctly and to code which is something I look for in the company I choose.
The only down side was that a company with a great reputation and rating is in very high demand during peak (hot) season and may take longer for a service date than some would like. But, if you want the right companies doing the work you will have to be patient especially if you procrastinate in calling for an appointment as I did. I was very pleased with the level of service expertise and professionalism the service team presented and I would gladly recommend them to my friends, family and anyone else needing service.

On Tuesday, my husband called
Manteca Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
’s to see if they could fix
a sprinkler system leak. They said that someone would come out between 8:00 and
8:30 A.M. Wednesday; they showed up around 8:20. The technician looked at the
system and said that there was probably a leak in the main line for the sprinkler
system. He said to leave the water turned on at the cutoff valve and to turn
the sprinklers off at the timer box so that he could find the leak when he
returned between 4:00 and 5:00 P.M. The technician did not return that
afternoon as promised and did not call to say that he would be late or to
reschedule. My husband called later that evening and left a message. My husband
called

’s at 8:15 A.M. Thursday morning and they said that a technician
would come out at 10:00 A.M. Again, the technician never showed and never
called. My husband called again around 12:15. The person at

’s said “the
crew didn’t show up? I’ll call you right back”. He never called back. My husband
called back around 1:45 and left a message telling them that he would get
someone else and not to bother coming back. My husband went to run some errands
and my son called him a few minutes after 2:00 to say that the guys from

Went okay but noticed a week later, another broken sprinkler head. No lawn mowing had taken place in between so it was "missed". Just felt like it wasn't a thurough job.
