Posted on 27 October, 2016 in Irrigation How to choose an irrigation installer for your business. Questions to consider.

Are you thinking about installing a new irrigation system for your business? Make sure to research the company who will be handling the irrigation installation first. Even the most well-designed system won't be able to do its job properly if it isn't installed well. You'll need to find a reputable installer to make sure the job is done right the first time. Here are five questions you need to ask before choosing to hire an irrigation system installation company.

How to choose an irrigation installer for your business. Questions to consider.

What Are the Company's Credentials?

The goal of this question is to determine how trustworthy the business is. Here at Hardy Landscaping, we have years of experience in installing irrigation systems for both private homes and commercial applications throughout the Northern Territory. We design, install and maintain irrigation systems for a variety of clients, including government institutions, schools, sporting facilities, and residential areas, to name a few.

Does the Company Provide Free Comprehensive Estimates for New System Installations?

This is an area in which you have to exercise extreme caution. Many companies will lure you in with a low initial bid but then add on a bunch of extras at the time of installation, resulting in a final price that is significantly higher than the original quote. Make sure that you get a comprehensive estimate that includes all aspects of the installation process, including parts, labour, and any associated service fees and taxes. Hardy Landscaping emphasises honesty and transparency in everything we do, including our price quotes.

Do They Use Products Designed to Help You Save Money and Conserve Water?

In NT, the dry climate can often require you to use high amounts of water to keep your garden looking its best. The way your irrigation system is designed and the materials it uses can have a significant impact on the amount of water it uses. An experienced irrigation installer should evaluate your water source and its flow rate and pressure to determine which style of system is most appropriate for your needs. Rain sensors can also be helpful in managing how much water is used to keep your costs under control. Hardy Landscaping is experienced in the Darwin region and uses irrigation systems that are specifically designed for the local weather conditions.

Is the Company Insured?

This is one of the most important questions to ask. Don't place unnecessary risk on you and your business. Accidents sometimes happen, so make sure that any company you hire to perform work at your business has appropriate insurance coverage for the work they're performing.
