Both of these picture were taken immediately after installation of the sprinkler system. You can see minor imperfections in the turf that go away after a couple of weeks of watering.
Sprinkler Doctor will locate your utilities and underground drainage system before we put anything in the ground.
If your water municipality allows for a deduct or sewer exempt meter, Sprinkler Doctor will install that for you at time of installation. You do not have to contact a plumber.
We have 3 full time Certified Backflow Testers on Staff as well. Remember, your backflow prevention device must be inspected every year.
Sprinkler Doctor also installs and repairs underground drainage including yard drain, French drains, underground conductor lines that take the water to the street. We can help with any type of water issue you might be having above or below ground.
We are a family owned business. Mark and Carol Lawhorn started Sprinkler Doctor, Inc. in April of 2000. We are not a franchise. Both of Mark and Carol work in the business full time. You likely speak to Carol when calling or emailing. She also does many of the estimates. Mark assists with large irrigation installations, backflow testing, estimates and whatever else is needed. We have another company, started in 2013, called Arena Water LLC. . Please click the Arena Water tab at the top of the page for more informaion. In their free time, they enjoy riding and showing their 6 horse. You may also hear one of the two dogs in the background when you call. Woof!
