Had them install a new sprinkler system in an existing lawn. Initially I was very pleased with the workmanship of the job and had no qualms. Upon inspecting the lines they buried a day or two after they had finished, I noticed quite a few sections where the lines were only 3-4" deep, and 2" in one or two spots. This was an issue for me as I wanted the lines ~6" deep to avoid issues during lawn aeration. This was a question I had asked and confirmed during his visit to quote the project cost. They came back and reburied most of the ones I thought were an issue, but missed a couple that I had marked, so I fixed those myself. There are parts that I was very happy with (did an excellent job with sprinkler placement and coverage, and with valve box) and some things (like having shallow lines that I had to fix), that really annoyed me. They saved and replaced whatever sod they could from digging lines and left me some sand to help fill in under the replaced sod when they came back for the 2nd time. Recommended a great plumber to do the backflow valve. Took 3 weeks from initial contact to finished job (done to my satisfaction). No written bid/estimate, but stuck to original price quoted. Good communication for the most part but I'd say if you're picky like me, maybe try another landscaper.Aug 3, 2017
Cal of Yardzilla responded promptly to my call and arrived later the same day to assess the problem. He arrived early the next morning and did a great job. I would recommend Cal and will use his services again, if necessary.Jul 13, 2018Verified

Cal spent quite a lot of time with us evaluating our sprinkler dilemmas, but he only charged us for the initial $50 evaluation fee. He's a very nice, clear guy whom we would recommend. If we have further issues, we'll be calling himJun 22, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Spring system Turn-On: $80.00 Minimum pricing for Spring Turn on of Sprinkler system is $80.00 up to 9 zones. After the 9 zone the fee is $8.00 per zone. This process consists of opening all applicable valves and energizing your system with the control box and verifying there are no leaks, all zones are working and each head is spraying it's designed pattern to water where it was designed to spray. Our hourly rates for repairs and modifications is $50-80 per hour with a two hour minimum. New installations are between $500 and $700 per zone depending on many factors such as boring under sidewalks and driveways and dealing with tree roots and part prices. I will give you an honest bid and discuss everything with you upfront . There are no surprises or hidden fees.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to talk with the customers on the phone first and then set appointment to talk with them in person. This enables both the customer and Yardzilla to find out their needs and wants
