Incredible Lawn Care & Landscaping
Devin Black came to us and took over our irrigation maintenance last summer 2015, doing a fine job. We hired him to grade and resod our back yard, also hired him to put garden stone around our flower bed. Then we needed someone to do lawn care and he wasn't sure he would do lawn care this season so it took him a while to answer, he was waiting to see if he got some bigger jobs and he did so he took us on. We were very happy with him until last week when he brought a new employee that didn't do such a good job. A week goes by and we get a text from Devin that he's dropping us out of the blue, saying he never should have taken us on because he had 30 other jobs and he usually works alone? Then something about not being a good fit? We've had a good relationship with Devin all along and now this, he did NOT give a two week notice and my husband works overseas and I have a disability so he has left me stranded. We are taken aback. NOT professional.The rating because of the outcome!
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.
