Quality sprinkler systems can mean the difference between an under or over watered lawn and one that’s lush and green year round. While you could install a sprinkler system yourself, there are several things you need to consider if you expect it to work properly. The water requirements between your lawn and garden and even plant to plant can be very different.

Hiring a qualified sprinkler system company is the most reliable method of ensuring that your sprinkler system will keep your lawn and garden areas looking their best. The success of your entire landscape can depend on the sprinkler system company you choose to do the job. The design and placement of the sprinkler heads and other components is essential. Sprinkler systems include a precise arrangement of pipes, connections, sprinkler heads, all connected to an automatic timer. Proper installation involves knowledge and experience to get the job done right. That’s why it’s probably best to have a professional irrigation contractor install the system for you. It may take a little work to locate the best sprinkler system company, but it could make a difference in the quality of service and you could find yourself saving a lot of money on water bills with a system that works efficiently.

One of the most reliable ways of finding a sprinkler systems company is by word of mouth. Talk with friends, family, co-workers, or anyone whose opinion you value. Also, look in your local phone directory under “Sprinkler System Installation”. The phone book is still the first stop for many people when they need to find a product or service.

These days almost everyone knows that the most reliable place to find information is on the internet. The internet will provide you with much more information than either word of mouth or the phone book ever could. The internet can not only provide you with the names and numbers of sprinkler system companies but it can also help you to become a more educated consumer.

My Grandfather always told me “People buy from people, not companies”. So read the reviews to see what people are saying about that company. I would also look at the companies warranty make sure it covers parts and labor. What good is it to buy a sprinkler system from a company that doesn’t believe in the product that he or she is installing? Lastly, I would recommend choosing a company that is known for its “Service after the sale” policy. In other words, if you have a problem with the sprinkler system, the company you choose should be there for you years to come should a problem arise.
