Let me say that I initially contracted with Hydra Hose for an in ground irrigation system. But, we were also planning on hiring a landscape contractor at some point to professionally landscape our front yard. We found that the Hydra Hose owner also does landscaping.
So, we hired her company for both which was perfect. The Hydrahose system was planned around our landscaping. Bonnie, the owner, is amazing the work with. After visiting our home several times and learning what we liked and did not like concerning plants, she worked within our budget and planned a perfect landscape for us . The plan was executed in a two day period that was a whirl wind of activity. Results were staggering. I saw strangers stop and take pictures.
The Hydrahose irrigation system is very ingenious, using the outdoor facets as the water source. Bonnie's installer left the yard in outstanding condition and the system works perfectly.
My only caution is that you have to be patient to have the work done if you wait for summer months. The installer had a waiting list.
