The Sprinkler System Installation Process
Whether you are looking to make watering easier or wanting to protect your landscape investment, in-ground irrigation is a great way to make taking care of your yard easier and more efficient. We offer free irrigation quotes which start with a visit to your home or business. We design all our systems based on the water needs of the plants, sun exposure and water supply. Most systems can be designed and estimated on site with a quote submitted that same day.
The install process starts before we arrive on site as our experienced staff put in a request to have your utility service lines painted to prevent damage during the install. Before beginning the install, we flag out the location of the heads and valve boxes according to the design and check that the conditions of your yard are suited to begin the install. Our focus for all members on the team will be to minimize the damage to the yard by using our proven methods and the proper tools. Typically, lines left by our machines and areas around the head will be back to normal after a month of running your new system. In most cases a standard residential home can be completed in 1 day and you will have a quick orientation on your system that day.
RUNNING YOUR NEW IRRIGATION SYSTEM
We pride ourselves in installing advanced, but easy to use irrigation controllers, so you can tailor you watering times to your landscape avoiding over and under watering. We also offer smart watering systems that can be adjusted anywhere you have a device with internet access. With every install we provide free service and training for the first year of operation, allowing you to get to know your system and its maintenance needs.
As with any system you install at your house, there will be some maintenance required. We select our products based on our years in the industry, as well as how the manufacturers back its product with their warranty. We recommend that you check your system a minimum of 3 times in a typical year: once when it is turned on and the other two periodically throughout the watering season. Blue Jay is proud to offer full servicing plans or plans for any level of service you need.
For customers who want a hands-off irrigation system we offer a Peace Of Mind service package that extends the warranty on the system indefinitely, as long as Blue Jay services your system. All our systems are backed by a 5-year warranty on all materials used with a 1-year warranty on the workmanship.

How much does it cost to install an irrigation system?
We design our system custom to each property. There are a lot of variables that increase or decrease the cost of a system. The amount of garden area vs. grass area, shade vs. sun, degree of slope, do you want a water efficient system or just a basic over spray system. All these variables allow us to build our system to fit your property and vegetation needs. We can’t give you a price over the phone but our sales team are more than happy to come meet with you and provide you with a custom design and proposal for your property.
Do you install drip irrigation systems?
Yes we do. Drip is the most water efficient way to water your garden areas but there are a few requirements. We recommend drip for areas that are established and you do not plan on planting every season. Drip sits on top of the soil so it requires mulch to be spread over top of it so you do not see it. If you have a vegetable garden that you want to water, we recommend going with over head spray vs. the drip so you have the ability to work and tend to the garden.
Will an automatic sprinkler system user more water than I am currently using?
Irrigation systems are designed to conserve water and do a better job of watering. Specific areas are scheduled to water for set amounts of time based on the conditions of that zone. It’s in these details that you will eliminate over-watering and/or wasting water. Even when it’s raining, your system will know that too, and will shut off.
