Irrigation Systems

Irrigation is Critical

A beautiful green lawn is a site to behold, and proper irrigation is the key to lush, healthy turf (as well as happy blooming planting beds!). Sprinkler types and locations, timing and water duration; all of these elements must be carefully calibrated to achieve the best results.

But that’s no problem for Hertzler & George. Our irrigation team has years of experience with yards of all sizes and configurations. We’ll bring out the best in your lawn whether its fescue, bermuda or zoysia.

Irrigation Design and Installation

Building a new house or renovating your backyard? H&G can design and install a brand new system, or modify or expand an existing system to accommodate any changes to your landscape.

Yearly Service Plan

Get peace of mind by signing up for Hertzler & George’s yearly irrigation service plan. The plan includes:

  • Irrigation Activation
     One of H&G's trained technicians will turn your system on in the spring, check for damaged heads, set the timer/control, and make any necessary adjustments for optimal coverage.
  • Irrigation Mid-Season Check
     H&G will also check and adjust your system in mid-summer to ensure all beds and lawn areas are getting proper coverage.
  • Irrigation Winterization
     We’ll prepare your irrigation system for cold weather by blowing out water lines to prevent freeze damage to your system.
  • Irrigation Backflow Certification
     Did you know that James City County requires yearly testing of irrigation backflow devices? Hertzler & George can test and certify your backflow device as required for all local city and county ordinances.

...very professional...

I just want to send back some very positive feedback on Joshua. He was very responsive yesterday despite the late hour and the situation with his truck. He is always very professional, listens carefully to our needs and does his work with a smile. Very nice representative for H&G.

“...she would like to switch to H&G...”

Joshua, Mrs. P (Ford's Colony) called to say how absolutely wonderful you were and how impressed she was with your work. Apparently 2 other companies did not even investigate the leak properly and by you discovering the problem at its source, you saved her a lot of money. She wants us to give her estimates for annual irrigation maintenance and for a lawncare program, as she would like to switch to H&G for these services.
