Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, we have a very comprehensive insurance policy. We have the following insurance protection:

  • Auto
  • Equipment
  • Worker’s compensation
  • General liability

Unfortunately, there are some companies out there that do not carry insurance, and the risk is transferred to you as the property owner. YOU are responsible should any problem arise or if an employee is hurt. We highly recommend you validate that any company with which you do business carries a comprehensive insurance policy.

When installing an automatic sprinkler system, minimal damage will occur. We use specialized equipment for installing pipe into the ground with minimal impact. Soon after the system is installed, the sprinkler lines will hardly be visible. They will quickly disappear completely as your lawn grows.

The purpose of a backflow prevent valve is to protect your drinking water from the possible contaminants from your lawn. Think of inflating a raft. You can blow air in, but the little rubber flap won’t let air escape. The backflow prevent valve works basically the same way. Water can feed your sprinkler system, but it cannot get back into your drinking water. Backflow prevent valves are required in Massachusetts.
