I've spoken to a number of companies regarding my irrigation and sodding needs, and The Sprinkler Company came on top. Not only were they the most economical, Mike was also very helpful, friendly, and accommodating with my demanding requirements. He's upfront and honest with his recommendations, gives options but does not up-sell. He also answers my texts and answers my calls, which says a lot about this guy and his company.
Mike helped coordinate schedule with the landscaper, and he came to lay down the pipes right after the backyard was excavated. He did a lot of the digging by himself. I'm really impressed with his dedication to the business and commitment to make customers happy.
On installation day, his team came at 8am, and a few minutes after, they started to get to work. He ran me through the scope of the work (again), where heads and sprayers will be placed, etc.
His team really worked hard (even skipping lunch), always gave me a big smile, and answered my questions respectfully. In my backyard, they did a good job everything putting back, as if nothing happened. They were very meticulous in preparing the ground and laying the sod.
They cleaned up well after the job was completed. Ben, the team's foreman, stayed to show me how the whole system works, including adjusting the heads and sprayers. He also inspected the pipe that connects to the faucet. He found a really really tiny gap that may cause a teeny weeny drip. He wasn't satisfied with that so he remedied it until it was fully dry with zero leaks.
To wit, the following was completed:
1. Sprayers and drip hose for the backyard
2. Sprinkler heads and re-sodding from the front yard
3. Sprayers and re-sodding for the side yard
I highly recommend this company. You won't regret. Fine, do your due diligence, but at the end of the day, I am confident you'll come back and sign the deal with them.
