Who Should Be Installing Your New Sprinkler System?

Winter may be right around the corner, but it’s never too early to think about ways to keep your lawn looking beautiful.  And the best way to do that is having a knowledgeable, experienced team install a custom sprinkler system tailored just for your home’s landscape needs.

Anyone in the market for sprinklers in Chelmsford MA should consider the following before making any decision about who will be installing their new sprinklers:

Is it a reputable company? There are lots of landscaping companies out there who are looking to cut corners (and costs) when it comes to your lawn, but the question is, how do you avoid working with these lemons?  Here are a few tips to help anyone looking for a new company to install sprinklers:
1.      Are they accredited with the BBB? If so, what is their ranking?  This kind of information can be helpful because less reputable businesses often are not accredited with the BBB or have a negative ranking when you look them up online
2.      Is there a warranty on parts and labor?  If there isn't then you might be getting set up for future costs down the road.  Without a warranty on your new sprinkler system, the company who installed it could be setting you up for future costs on “repairs” down the road.  Don’t let them nickel and dime you!

3.      Check their references.  Lots of companies have happy customers, and the best companies are willing to share those happy customers with a potential new customer in order to get business.  Referrals are the best way to grow any business, so if someone is not able to give you a referral from a REAL client of theirs, you should be weary of working with them.

Halloween Is Near!

Living in Vienna, VA and need help with landscaping ideas for the fall?  Well if you have access to some pumpkins, hay and scarecrows, then you are all set.  Pumpkins are a great fall accent for your landscaping design because there are so many different things you can do with such a simple item.  If you want to add some lighting outdoors, clean out a pumpkin, cut out a pattern in the front (leaves are always a great idea), and place a citronella candle inside.  You can also place several pumpkins on your front porch with some hay stacks and a scarecrow and kill two birds with one stone – fall and Halloween d├ęcor.
