    Sprinkler System

    I would like to call and get several bids on a sprinkler system. I live in Grimes, so anyone in the Des Moines area with any helpful info on area installers would be appreciated. Good, bad, expensive, cheap, anything. I've heard good things about TnT, good and bad about Bob Lenc. What about Perficut and some of the others?
    Thanks

    TnT here. They have always been quick to respond and the system works great. They did most the work in my neighborhood.

    Mark Rice of Rice Lawn Car - highly recommend him. So far, he has not showed up late once (which is unheard of), prices are very fair and does good work.

    We have 8 zones, 1 sprayer and 7 rotary. It covers around 11,500 sq ft. I think it was in the $3500 range. That doesn't include the irrigation meter ($750 for WDSM) and plumbing (a few hundred dollars).

    Startup, certification and shutdown is about $150 per year.

    Re: Sprinkler System

    Rainbird has a free design service. I plan on sending them the information and letting them design it. Then I can price what it would cost me to do it myself as opposed to hiring someone else.

    I would still probably hire a plumber to tie it into the water line but I wouldn't think that would take more than an hour.
