“Now you see why I finally decided not to do it anymore,” replies James. Sarah nods sadly. “But, I really don’t want to replace it with turf. It’s just so…fake.”

James sighs. “Well, then we should look into how much an irrigation system costs to install. It’ll save us both time and energy. I’m sure a local contractor has something on their irrigation installation service page.”

The cost to install an irrigation system ranges between about $6,500 to $25,000. The cost depends on your yard footage, what your yard needs, and if you want any extra features.

Basic Irrigation System Cost: $6,500 for a standard front lawn irrigation system that’s around 4,000 square feet. This includes a basic programmable timer and high-quality sprinklers

Medium Irrigation System Cost: $12,000 to $14,000 for a standard irrigation system for the front lawn and back lawn covering around 12000 square feet. This includes a basic programmable timer and high-quality sprinklers

Large Irrigation System Cost: $16,000 to $25,000 for an advanced irrigation system, for a large residential yard (front and back lawn) covering around 12,000 plus square feet. This can include wi-fi timers, flow control sensors, weather sensors, and high-quality sprinklers

*All our irrigation systems come with an automatic timer that controls each section of the lawn. This gives each area the prescribed amount of water it needs, keeping it healthy and green as seasons change.
