Irrigation Installation Service in Grand Rapids
Keeping your lawn and landscape healthy requires watering. At Summit we know how important your sprinkling systems are. We insist on using the highest quality, professional grade irrigation products from all the leading manufacturers including Rain Bird, Hunter, and Toro.
Our installations are meticulous, making sure that we:
- Properly groom, compact and clean up trenches, holes and/or vibratory plow routes
- Install sprinkler heads and valve boxes level to the grade
- Position sprinkler heads at a consistent distance from hardscapes and bed edges
- Neatly install controllers and above ground piping to your pump or city water hook up

During April and May, we recommend our spring activation service to get your sprinkler system up and running for the season. At the time of spring activation, we review the design of your current irrigation system in order to recommend changes or enhancements that will ensure your irrigation system meet the needs of all of your lawn and plants in the most efficient manner. From a simple head change, to the addition of entire zones, our technicians will work with you to optimize turf and plant coverage. We will check all the components to ensure your system is fully functional for the watering season.
Summer Efficiency Program
Over the past few summers, it seems we have experienced every extreme of summertime weather. These extremes have challenged Summit to find a better way to help our customers keep their irrigation systems running as efficiently as possible through the summer months.
The solution is Summit’s Summer Efficiency Program which offers up to 3 proactive time-sensitive summer visits to evaluate and adjust the operation of your irrigation system. This program will greatly reduce your potential for water waste by efficiently adjusting your watering schedule for current summer weather conditions when your lawn and landscape need it most!
As an added benefit, should Summit find that a repair to your irrigation system is needed at the same time as your summer visit(s), we will waive our regular service call fee and invoice only for the parts and associated repair labor.
In the Midwest, we experience freezing temperatures as early as October. Consequently, your irrigation system must be properly winterized to safeguard against freeze damage.
Because the timing of the arrival of freezing weather varies from season to season, we recommend winterization between late September and first of November each year.
