When was the last time you had your sprinkler system tuned up? If your answer is “I don’t know,” you may be wasting water and money. Even high-end sprinkler and irrigation systems need regular maintenance and tune-ups to keep them performing efficiently. Over time, sprinkler systems that are not properly maintained can develop costly leaks and cause lawn damage from over-watering. The California drought is raising water bills and placing additional watering restrictions on home and business owners,  so it is more important than ever before to make sure you are using water efficiently. Our team of experts will ensure your landscape not only survives, but thrives in the California drought.

Dirty Work Landscape has a base price for a residential system of $80.00 for the first 4 zones and charges $10.00 for each additional zone. If the system is in need of major repairs and has more than five sprinklers that need to be straightened or raised, additional charges may be necessary.
