Simmons landscape and irrigation employees at work

Here at Simmons Landscape and Irrigation, we take pride in providing our customers with exceptional service and top-quality work when it comes to irrigation installation & design, maintenance, and repair. That being said, we sometimes get requests from our customers for services that are related to landscaping and irrigation, but they aren’t the ones that we provide.

We also know that not everyone is a DIYer. Sometimes, you need to hire a professional to get the job done right!

Fortunately, we know of several excellent, customer-centric local companies that do provide these services. From plantings and property maintenance to insect control and fencing, here are six local companies that are the best in their fields and who we love to recommend to our customers.

Service: Hydroseeding and grading


3446 Eber Rd

Monclova, OH 43542

Phone number

(567) 703-1035

If you need your landscape graded or want to hydroseed your property, we recommend contacting Carroll Landscape and Nursery. They have been helping local residents and businesses keep their properties looking beautiful since 1995.

Grading is the process of leveling or sculpting the landscape in order to prepare it for the installation of other landscape elements, such as hardscapes, grasses, shrubs, trees, or other plants.

Hydroseeding is a quick and efficient method for growing grass, especially on slopes and other difficult-to-plant areas. Hydroseed is applied by spraying a mix of water, seed, soil amendments, fertilizer, and mulch that adheres to the soil. This tacky mixture helps prevent erosion and holds the grass seed in place until it germinates and sprouts into a lush-looking lawn.

5. Toledo Fence and Supply

Service: Residential and commercial fencing

When we install, maintain, or repair a client’s irrigation system, it often happens that they ask us about other landscape-related services–such as fence installation. And while we don’t provide that service, we do have a favorite fence installer that we regularly recommend: Toledo Fence and Supply.

Toledo Fence and Supply have been providing quality fencing solutions for commercial, industrial, and residential clients in Ohio since 1926. They offer a wide range of fencing materials, including aluminum, vinyl, metal, and wood.

Service: Plumbing for backflows


17245 Kellogg Rd.

Bowling Green, OH 43402

Phone number

(419) 823-3002

If you’ve ever had a backflow issue with your irrigation system, you know the headaches this can cause you. Backflow is when the water in your irrigation system moves in the wrong direction–from the irrigation system back to the water supply source. The danger of this is that the water from your irrigation system could contaminate the municipal water supply lines.

This typically occurs when the water pressure in the irrigation system is higher than the water pressure coming from the water supply. This is often caused by a sudden drop in the water pressure of the source that is supplying your irrigation system. However, it can also be caused by other plumbing issues, such as broken or frozen pipes.

If your home or business has this issue, we recommend contacting Downey PHCE. This is one of the top-rated plumbing companies in the area. They have been providing outstanding plumbing services to the Northwest Ohio region since 1995, including Grand Rapids, Maumee, Perrysburg, Rossford, Sylvania, Toledo, Waterville, and Whitehouse.
