With 20+ years experience in the irrigation industry I have the skills and expertise to satisfy all of your sprinkler system requirements; annual maintenance, repairs for all brands, renovation / additions, system auditing and limited new construction installation services.
A sprinkler system that is working properly is a great asset to your landscapes health and appearance. A system that is not working properly may be quite the opposite.
Spring Turn On
This is the initial startup and check of the sprinkler system after winter. The system will be pressurized with water and tested for leaks, non-functioning components and proper adjustment. Repairs to the system if needed can be completed at this time. After the spring turn on is completed the sprinkler system will be functional. If you choose not to run it that’s fine, I can leave the controller off or pre-programmed to come on at a later time in the season. It is recommended to have this service completed earlier than later and be ready for the watering season. The preferred time for this service is April-June
Having another walk through of the system in the hot summer months is highly recommended. It gives the opportunity to assess the coverage, watering schedule, and overall functionality of the system. With plants getting taller, traffic on the turf such as lawn mowing and activities, and the stress of hot/dry conditions; the system may need to be tailored for the seasonal demand. This time of year any deficiencies in the system are easily spotted and resolved. This service can be an oppurtunity to optimize the efficiency of your system and watering schedule. The preferred time for this service is June-August
This service is mandatory for a system that has been turned on for the season. Water left in the pipes and components may freeze and expand causing damage. Using an air compressor, air will be blown through the sprinkler system removing the water. After the winterization is complete the system will be inoperable till the following spring turn on. If necessary sprinkler heads can be marked with flags if you are planning on aerating your lawn. Repairs to the system are usually deferred till the following spring unless otherwise communicated. Preferred time for this service is October-early November. Please note that the cold can come in a hurry here in Wisconsin so the earlier the better.

I stock a wide variety of parts so replacements are on hand. I also have equipment and methods that allow me to diagnose problems in the systems quickly.

We will fix anything related to your sprinkler system.
Here are examples of common repair calls:
- Broken or non-functioning sprinkler heads

- System will not turn on or will not shut off
- Soggy Areas
- Lake Pump issues
- Problems related to the electrical system
If your landscape changes, chances are your irrigation system will have to also. Sometimes the landscape has just matured and the sprinkler heads are no longer in a useful location. Have you or will you be undergoing a major landscape project? Your irrigation system can be renovated to adapt to these changes. Moving, adding, or eliminating sprinkler heads can give you back optimal water coverage.
Your irrigation system can also be expanded. Adding additional zones will allow you to cover more turf, planting beds, or even annual hanging baskets or pots.
I can work with your landscape contractor and locate and mark key components of your system to avoid unnecessary costly damage.
I offer a very efficient design paying close attention to sun exposure, slope, and hydrozones.
Often I come across customers who moved into a home that has a system but know little about it. It can seem intimidating and frustrating to operate. By taking some time and collecting data we can get an accurate look at its performance. Knowing this will help fine tune a program for the controller, also giving you a way to project future municipal water bills if they apply.
Throughout the season changes to the watering program will have to be made. I can teach you how to operate your system and provide user manuals if needed. I can also provide you a map of your system if you do not have one.
Is your system all it can be?
Get comprehensive performance optimizing solutions, technologies and products. Here are just a few examples of ways to improve on an inefficient system:
