How We Are Different

  • Expert Staff Only: The only employees are we the business owners, thus you can be assured that only experts will be working on your system.
  • Competitive Pricing: We offer the most affordable prices in Ottawa.
  • Head-to-Head Coverage (the “Cadillac” of irrigation design): We design every system with head-to-head coverage, which means that each sprinkler head will overlap substantially the area covered by the adjacent sprinkler. This ensures that every part of your landscape will be covered by at least two sprinkler heads and provides uniform coverage and efficient watering. A very important requirement to ensure no dry spots.
  • Careful Clean-Up: We ensure your landscape remains aesthetically pleasing and looks untouched. Upon completion, you won’t even know we were there.
  • Customer-Focused: Our number one priority is customer satisfaction. We don’t rush through jobs in order to get in as many as we can. We put careful consideration into each job to ensure it is of the highest quality and is exactly what you, the customer, have asked for.
  • Flexibility: As a family owned business we will strive to schedule your installation/service to a date/time suitable to you.
