I knew I wanted a lawn irrigation system, but finding an installer was difficult, because there are so many. I figured I would check out HomeStars and Green Valley Irrigation is right at the top of the list. I was skeptical, so I tried other review sites and Green Valley remained at the top. I figure I would call up John @ Green Valley Irrigation back in late spring of this year to get a quote from him so I could budget a lawn irrigation system into my landscaping projects for this year. John came at the drop of a hat. From the get go I could see that he is very passionate and knowledgeable about his trade. Never once did he try and up sell me on any sort of system or options, in fact the opposite was true. John's motto is keep the system as simple as you can to avoid adding extra zones and thus extra cost.
Once I finally got my landscaping done by late July, I called up John again and he was at my house within a week. He honored his original price even though the scope of work had slightly changed (increased). John told me it would take a day to finish the whole project (I was skeptical I admit, only 1 day?) John and his crew showed up at 7:50am for an 8:00am start time. Who shows up early these days? It's hard enough to get contractors to even start in the same week as you book them. He installed 4 zones at my house and installed the controller as well and was done by 11:30am. I've never seen such an organized bunch of workers. Everyone had their role and the entire job was finished in less that 4 hours.
My system has Hunter PGJ rotor heads in 1 zone in the front yard to water my grass. In the same zone, the flower pots have tiny micro sprays in them to take care of my potted globe cedars. The second zone in the front consists of Hunter PLD drip irrigation hoses in the flower beds to ensure efficient even watering of my hostas, day lilies, and ornamental grasses. The backyard has 2 zones which are made up of Hunter pro-fixed nozzles which take care of the trees, garden, and grass. I can tell you that the system works flawlessly. John insisted in using Hunter products, which in my book are the top of the line anyways, because he doesn't want problems with his work. He also took the time to explain how each zone is piped, how to adjust each sprinkler head, and how to operate the computer. Many times throughout the walk through, John reminded me that if I ever had any questions, I could call him up any time.
I am extremely picky about work done to my house, so much so that it takes a while to find a suitable contractor that I would even let work on my projects. I would rehire John and the Green Valley Irrigation team over and over again. They have got their trade down to an art and if anything is wrong, they will make it right. The customer service is top notch and they are highly recommended. If you're looking for a lawn irrigation system, call Green Valley Irrigation now!!!
