Mathews Sprinkler Systems
this guy is pricey and does not back up his work. I had him out to replace a bad valve in the yard and check the others. He fixed 4 valves and charged me $384. When I turned on the system the bad zone worked but another zone was stuck in the one position. Now I could not run the sprinklers without flooding that zone. He claimed it was not that way when he left and wanted to charge me $75 each to repair 6 remaining valves, that's another $450! I decided to use someone else- he repaired the remaining valves for $225. (1.5 hours) So I would recommend Cook Landscape Concepts in Burleson.
Tips & Advices
The local climate’s heat and humidity affects evaporation rates, and this helps determine the best irrigation options. For example, sprinkler irrigation in a high-heat / high-sun environments lose more water to evaporation than drip irrigation. When choosing an irrigation system, also consider soil type and topography.
Drip irrigation uses 20 percent – 50 percent  less water than traditional sprinkler systems, which conserves water and saves money. It reduces weeds, soil erosion, and fertilizer run-off. Drip systems work well with irregularly or hilly landscapes. Because it waters the plants evenly and efficiently and reduces water contact with leaves, it also reduces the risk of plant disease or fungus.
Drip irrigation uses tubing to “drip” water slowly and directly to the soil surface, roots or bases of plants. This low-pressure, low-volume system can use drips, sprays, or streams to keep roots moist but not soaked. The tubes can be located above ground, where they are visible, or “subsurface,” which reduces evaporation even further.
Yes. All irrigation systems are made up of component parts that need maintenance and eventual replacement. Professional maintenance in the spring and fall will keep the system in its best working order.
Most professionally installed irrigation systems can be installed in one or two days, depending on the size and complexity of the job. Do-it-yourself installations could take longer.
