Sprinkler System for Front Lawn and Gardens

Thank you Northern Rainmakers for going above and beyond! You definitely met and exceeded the expectations I had when I originally came on Homestars and spent all that time trying to find the right sprinkler company. I did meet with other companies reviewed with high percentages but what really won me over was the friendly, caring, and professional vibe that I got from Northern Rainmakers. And yes, for those wondering, their price is competitive compared to the other quotes that I received.

My experience with Northern Rainmakers started with a very prompt response from a request on Homestars to get a quote. One of the owners, Jamie, came out the next day to meet with me. What a nice and down-to-earth guy! I was most impressed with how well he listened and how he really took his time to explain how their services would accomplish what I was looking for. He didn't make me feel like he was in a rush or that I was just another customer. You could tell that he truly cares. He even flagged out where all the sprinkler heads, valve box, and controller would go. This helped me a lot in terms of visualizing the system and especially for Jamie and I to come to a consensus on how to best meet my gardens needs.

I like that this company recommends Hunter and Rainbird products. If you've ever looked into a sprinkler system, you may already know that these are the most reputable brands in the industry and Northern Rainmakers only wants to use the best. I had a few special requests for particular parts (ie. a particular controller and flow sensor) and they were happy to provide. Now that I have a wifi system that I can control on my phone and is connected to local weather stations, I feel like I got exactly what I was looking for.

My install date was booked in during a busy season so I would've had to wait a few weeks but a cancellation came up and I was able to get the job done a lot sooner thanks to Crystal in the office. The scheduling and all communications, following the initial quote, were all handled through her. Having spoke with her on a few occasions, I can tell you that she is very friendly, organized, professional, and quick to respond by email or answer by phone. This played a big factor in deciding which company to choose.

On the day of the install I was a bit nervous because I've put a lot of time, effort, and money into my lawn and gardens so it was really important to me that they were careful, especially around my more rare evergreens and Japanese Maples. This is where they really shined! Without me asking, they figured out how to route all the underground hoses with barely running any through the gardens and, when all was said and done, you could hardly tell that trenches were dug all over.

During cleanup, the crew even got down on their hands and knees to rake by hand throughout the gardens and lawn to clear any built up dirt and to spread the existing mulch back nicely around all the plants. What was also nice is that I didn't find one piece of construction material or garbage anywhere.

In closing, they take pride in their work and that's what I'm always looking for. It's not just about the quality of install, it's a lot about the service you will receive before, during, and after that really makes the difference. Thank you Northern Rainmakers! I look forward to seeing you again during opens, closes, and when I'm finished designing the backyard.

Sprinkler Installation for Front, Sides, & Back Lawns

We got a quote from Sean regarding the irrigation of our front lawn, and once we gave him the okay he sent Dominic and two other men to our property. They arrived promptly at the agreed upon time, and when we requested that they irrigate the back and sides as well they were more than willing to do it on the same day for us.

Dominic was very professional from asking us about future landscaping plans we might have, to explaining the timer box and system.

They worked diligently through the scorching heat from 9 am to 4:30 pm; and didn't leave any mess behind unlike other home professionals we've had on our property.

We would happily recommend them to anyone looking for quality work done efficiently and professionally.

Sprinkler System Setup

The sprinkler system has been set up for many years now and it works like clockwork. We've yet to have any problems with it and are very satisfied with the results. The crew is also punctual and friendly rounding off a good experience with this company.

Front and back landscape lighting

We had an excellent experience working with Sean and Eyal who installed our new front and back yard lighting. Sean was amazing accommodating our needs an Eyal did a wonderful and meticulous job installing everything. His attention to detail was exemplary and we are so grateful for the end result - we will enjoy it for years to come. I would recommend Northern Rainmakers to anyone who is looking for a professional lighting company that provides high quality work and reasonable pricing. Thanks Sean and Eyal!

Irrigation and landscape lighting in front and back yard

I had my front yard redone and the stone contractor I used recommended Northern Rainmakers. I used them for the irrigation system and they re-worked and embellished much of the existing landscape lighting systems in my front and back yards.
I would absolutely recommend them. I dealt with both Sean and Jamie and found them extremely professional and hard working. They were at my home when they said the would be and returned calls promptly. I also found their quotes to be very competitive. I will continue to use them and recommend them to everyone I know.

Goes the extra mile

Sean is a conscientious, reliable and honest contractor who has been servicing our sprinkler system here in downtown Toronto, for a heritage home that requires a degree of extra effort. Each year he performs his work without complaining or excuses given the extra challenges our home presents.
I can highly recommend him for the most challenging jobs - he is able to solve problems professionally and with great courtesy and care. I trust him and I look forward to continued association with him and with Northern Rainmakers.

Sprinkler system and lighting

Great Service Sean and Jamie, great workmanship. Would recommend to anyone who likes a job well done. They did lighting and a full sprinkler system. They are very fast at their work and efficient. They are expensive but they make up for it with great work.

Front & Back irrigation system, new sod, & installatio of new timers for existing garden lights.

A great experience from beginning to end.

I originally met with Jamie from Northern Rainmakers last year on the recommendation of my gardener. I decided to go with them after reading their glowing reviews on Homestars but waited until this year after doing a major pool renovation in my backyard. Before the work begun, Jamie met with us & explained the process, answered all of our questions and addressed any concerns that we had.

The day of the install, the team, headed by Domenic, arrived on time and got right to work. The three man crew did the entire installation (irrigation system & laying of new sod) in two days and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. Jamie came back a few days later to make a few small adjustments and even helped me re-lay an old lawn stone that had sunken into the ground over the years.

It was so nice to deal with a company that takes such pride in its work. I would highly recommend Northern Rainmakers to anyone looking for a company that is committed to making sure its customers are happy and I will continue to use them for the maintenance of my new irrigation system.

Thank you Jamie, Domenic & team for doing such a fantastic job!

Lawn Irrigation System

Sean was very professional and courteous to deal with right from the start.

His quote was very clear and well-explained, and the work was done on time and on budget.

He had to set the sprinkler heads up on a very windy day, and let me know to call him in a couple weeks time to have him re-adjust them on a calmer day, which he did as promised.

I highly recommend them.
