We’re a team of irrigation and drainage experts who serve Bucks County, PA and the surrounding areas. We were born and raised in Levittown, as were our parents, and we like to think that our business can contribute positively to the place we call home.
Levittowners know that certain sections are prone to flooding (ahem, looking at you Indian Creek) and many Levittown homes have lawns that could use an efficient irrigation system to keep grass green and gardens happy. We want to help with whatever water needs you might have.
Irrigation system installation
Thinking about having an irrigation system installed? You’re not alone. Friends and neighbors all over Levittown are having systems installed to improve their lawns, nourish their gardens and improve their homes resale value. While there are a variety of irrigation systems types that can be installed, depending on your watering needs, we do more underground systems than anything else.
When we come out to do your free estimate we will take notes about the property, your watering needs and then come up with a custom designed layout that will serve you best. We will also take a look at any grading issues you may have and discuss troublesome water-logged spots that we can fix while we’re working.
Installing an underground system isn’t as daunting as it sounds. We call up the municipality to come out and mark any underground lines so we know where to and where not to dig, then we hand dig wherever possible to reduce the impact on your lawn (big machinery can do a number to that green grass you’re trying to keep up) and we always cover our tracks by replacing the sod where it came from and planting grass seed where necessary.
Rain bird sprinkler systems
We love Rain Bird. They are a reputable company that manufactures high quality parts with warranties to boot. A lot of people ask us if we use Rain Bird parts (because they’ve heard they’re the best) and we do, almost exclusively. If you are interested in another manufacturer like Hunter or Toro, we can of course discuss the options.
Rain Bird remains at the top of their industry for part durability and versatility. Check them out at Rain Bird for more information.
Irrigation system cost
Because we custom design every system it’s not reasonable for us to list prices. However, to give you a ballpark figure, because we know as consumers that not being given even a ballpark figure is incredibly annoying, it varies.
A typical Levittown yard is somewhere between 1/8 acre and 1/3 acre so right there the price will already vary drastically. Then it depends on what it is you need, if your property has drainage issues, is on a slope, has other features like a pool that we need to work around… etc.
In our experience working in Levittown over the years systems typically run anywhere from $2,000 – $6,000. Yeah, we know, that’s a big range but we will be able to narrow it down specifically for you with our free estimate.
Drip irrigation systems
Drip irrigation systems are low volume systems that distribute water to your lawn adequately without drenching the roots. Although they are called “drip” irrigation systems, they can actually spray or have a stream that does the job as well. A drip irrigation system is designed using pipes, valves, emitters and tubing and is considered more efficient for smaller spaces than other systems like surface sprinklers or traditional sprinkler systems which will cover more surface area. However, choosing a drip irrigation system over other kinds of systems will come down to your property and your watering needs.
