If you dont have an angies list membership, Click Here to get one - the small investment will give you reliable options for a provider in your area!

Get at least three quotes and a contract with a well defined scope of work.

After all of the bids are in, compare apples to apples by allowing the companies to tighten up or modify their pricing with any additional direction or more specific plans.

Good luck!

I don't know what state you’re in but with Irrigation inTexas, prices can sometimes vary greatly. The reason for this is mostly due tolicensing. Unlicensed contractors do not have to take the continuing educationand receive notices of regulation changes. Some cities will only allow certain controllers;others may require only drip for foundations and beds.

When you get your estimates make sure there are permit, design, and testingfees as well as a license number on the estimate. If the estimates are showingdifferent totals for the zones - something may be wrong.

With irrigation you not only need someone reliable but knowledgeable. The moneyyou save now may cost you a bundle later.

As far as the landscaping goes, get a landscaping plan first then get yoursprinkler system designed to reflect those areas, make sure your contractor hasa copy of the plan.

If you’re lucky you can get a contractor, like myself, that does both.

Where do you live? I have had good experience w/one landscaper here in Shelby County, KY & bad experience w/another. None of that info will be of use to you if you're not from same area.
