“They were terrific. They had somebody that followed up immediately. They came out the next day, repaired it, and everything was done the way it should have been done. It was very positive. I would grade them A+. It hasn't leaked yet. They had to go all the way into the utility room. They had to redo all the piping. It was terrific. I certainly have no reason to think that it was not perfect in every way.”

“Interstate was fantastic. I liked that they were very knowledgeable, and they had very skilled workers who had a lot of experience. They put in 22 zones and 105 sprinklers. It was a very big project. My property is very complicated, and those guys were brilliant. I'd grade them A+.”

“It was the best experience I had. I liked that they were to the point, ready personnel, very neat and clean work, except they had to come back and adjust only one time. They put in the sprinkler system. They get an A+.”

“They are very good, excellent. I had a problem, and they come and fixed it right away. If there was some misunderstanding with the installation, they fixed it right away. I'm very happy with them. They did sprinkler work for all the sprinklers in the backyard. I would grade the overall experience A. I don't have any complaints about the quality of work, but if I some problem, I could call them to fix it. Very important is they were—they fixed the problem right away.”

“They put in an irrigation system for us. I liked that from the very first guy to tell us what the estimate would be, and how it would all go about, was very good. When they came that morning they were here on time, and they did the work in the amount of time that they said. They showed me everything that I needed to know about it. They were quite wonderful, and I would recommend them. I would grade the overall experience A. They seemed to know exactly what they were doing.”

“I liked that we did it in two steps. This made everything more flexible because we didn't have everything that was needed, so it was possible to make one job and then expand to whatever we needed. I would grade them A+. Everything is working fine.”

“I liked that they were pretty responsive, they had a pretty quality install, and it was quick too. I'd give them an A.”

“They are conscientious. I just had the system put in, and they called me to ask for an appointment time for the winterizing that they do. It seems like a pretty well-organized operation. They did what they said they would do. That was good. They're an A.”

“They did good work, no complaints, and I would recommend them.”

“They did sprinkler work for me.”

“They put in a sprinkler system for me, and they did a good job. I liked that they were very efficient, and the small damage they had to do, which is necessary when you put in a sprinkler, resolved very quickly because they reseeded. Their seed had a very good yield, so it came up very well. I've had no problems with it. They came out to winterize it as scheduled, which was part of the work, which they did very well. The system they used has a very good electronic control box which is easy to use. I'm very happy with them and I would use them again. They get an A.”

“We had a very good experience with Interstate. It was a very good experience because they came out on time. They did a good job, they were communicative and explained things very well, and I appreciated that. They put an irrigation system in for us. I'd grade them A.”

“I think they are OK. I liked they did a good job as they promised. They put in a sprinkler system for me. They get an A-.”

“I liked the estimator. When he came out he was very thorough. He was very informative, answered all my questions, and didn't leave me feeling like there's a chance they weren't going to know what they were doing. The estimate was a little higher than the others, but based on the information he provided, I felt I was getting my money's worth, and I wasn't going to have problems. The guys, the installers, were very helpful and informative at the same time. They were showing me how to set the system up and where everything was and—very patient. I was pleased all the way around. They earned an A+.”

“I liked their installation. They did an install, and then they did a service as well. Both were good. They showed up on time for the installation. They came in at budget. It was a fairly big lighting and irrigation project. They worked hard to get it done and in a timely fashion, and they hit the budget, so double thumbs up. I would rate them A overall.”

“Interstate Irrigation was efficient and professional, and they took their job very seriously. They did a phenomenal job and cleaned up afterward, which was not easy to do because it was super muddy. They're really at the A level. Bottom line, we're very pleased. I would highly recommend them.”

“I thought the team was great. I'd give them an A+ for sure. Their quality of work, flexibility, and ability to do the things that I asked them to do—and actually do them that day, as opposed to having to reschedule—was a huge time-saver for me. It was great service. They were on time, as promised. I'd recommend them for sure.”

“The service was great. They worked on the sprinkler system. I'd give my overall experience an A+. Their punctuality and customer service were perfect. They were all great.”

“They were very nice and courteous. The work was excellent, with no complaints. They did irrigation and lighting work.”

“The work Interstate did was excellent. I have no complaints.”

“I liked everything: the customer service, the timing, the workmanship, everything. They did a sprinkler system and an irrigation system for my lawn. I think the experience was excellent. I'd give them an A.”

“Their proficiency made it positive. The way that the stuff was explained to me, everything was just done in an efficient manner. They did irrigation work. I'd give my overall experience an A+.”

“You can give them 10's across the board. They're really good. They just did a good job. I'd give them an A+ for the overall experience.”

“Interstate Irrigation did sprinkler work. I'd give them an A+. I think they were great. I've already recommended them.”

“They did some recovery work from a flood that I had in my basement. I'd give my overall experience an A.”

“We're very happy with our work. They were on time, they did the job, and they cleaned up after themselves; and they worked with us. They installed sprinklers and lighting. I'd give them an A.”

“They did what they were supposed to do. The irrigation system is now working. I'd give them an A.”

“The guys are nice, they're in here quickly, they know what they're doing, and it's efficient. We're pleased. I'd give them an A.”

“They did the winterization for our sprinkler system. They came in and blew it out. They did what they said they'd do, so I'd give them an A. I called, I made an appointment, and they met it. They were there on time.”

“They came on time, they did their job, and they left. They worked on my irrigation system. I have no complaints. Their customer service, cleanliness, punctuality, and expertise were very good. I have recommended them before. I like them.”

“Their installation was painless and quick, and they seem have fixed the issue. I'd give my overall experience an A. I'd give them A's across the board. I've already recommended them to one of my neighbors.”

“They're good; we like them. They're punctual, they did a good job, and they did everything within the timeframe they told us—like within seven or eight hours. They did some irrigation work and put in some sprinklers. I have no complaints.”

“They did our sprinkler system. They did what they promised. I'd probably say the overall experience was an A.”

“They were professional and coordinated well. They maintained the agreement for the sprinkler system, were on time, and did the work very quickly, professionally, and with no problems at all. I'd give them an A for the overall experience.”

“They were prompt and installed the irrigation system on time. I'd give them an A for the overall experience.”

“I liked their technician's personality. He came and sat down with me and explained the whole process of the irrigation system. They made me feel really good about it. I'd never really had any experience with an irrigation system, so I'd give them an A for that. I've already recommended them.”

“They did what they said they were going to do, and they've been responsive when I've called. They installed a sprinkler system. For the overall experience, I'd give them an A. I already have recommended them.”

“Interstate did the job, installed an irrigation system, and they did it well. I give them an A.”

“They were quick. They do good quality work. They started and finished the irrigation work when they said they would. I'd give them an A for the overall experience.”

“They put in my sprinkler system. They came out, they gave me an estimate, they showed up when they were supposed to, and, as far as I can tell, the work's been good. They certainly did what I wanted them to do, which is get my lawn into good shape. Their customer service was good. The only thing that happened was that they ended up cutting my cable line. But I don't think that was their fault because it wasn't marked. When that happened, the cable people got with them, and I think they paid for the repair. I never heard any more about it, so it was all transparent for me. I'd give my overall experience an A. I think it's a pretty good system. They came out and winterized it for me when they were supposed to. They've done everything that I've asked them to do. I haven't had any problems with the system, and I haven't had any problems with them. I would recommend them.”

“Interstate installed the sprinkler system. I would give them an A-. Overall, I was very pleased with the work they did.”

“They winterized my system, and it was great.”

“They were fairly attentive. Like any job like this, some mistakes happen along the way, but they were good about fixing them. They were responsive, they did all the work they said they were going to do, and they were generally very courteous. My wife and I were happy overall. They installed a sprinkler system for us and some outdoor lighting. I'd give them an A.”

“I've used them for about 35 years for my sprinkler system. And then, this year, a different part of the company helped me replace 200 feet of water line, and they did a very good job. They were very thorough and very meticulous, and they did a really good job. They were very professional. They came on time and left on time, and the job they did, they left it very clean. I'd give them a nine out of ten because the job they did was a very skilled job. Essentially they installed 250 feet of new copper pipes underground without damaging anything. I'd certainly give them an A. In all the categories, they did very well.”

“I had gotten their name because a neighbor had recommended them. I think what I particularly liked about them was the amount of explanation I got regarding what work they were going to be doing and how they were going to be doing it. Toward the end, the guy who actually came out and put the stuff in went through all the mechanisms and gadgets with me, and I really appreciated that. He also left the material for me to look at, and he said if I had any questions, I could call him any time. It went well. I would give them an A.”

“They were just fine, and they did what they said. Their customer service was just fine. I'd give them an A.”

“I liked their response to problems and questions. I liked their courtesy and knowledge, and the people are very experienced. I've had them for about two years. I heard about them through my son-in-law. They installed the sprinkler system in my yard, and they maintained it and came and changed the system configuration during the winter. I'd give them an A.”

“They were punctual and responsive. They installed an irrigation system. I first heard about them through a neighbor. I think they deserve an A.”

“They did a good job. They did what I asked them to do and what they were contracted to do, and they showed up when they were supposed to and got the job done. They installed a sprinkler system. I'd give them an A.”

“They seemed to be able to assess what was needed, and the crew was large enough to get the job all completed in one day. They put in-ground sprinklers around our property, and we also have a line going to potted plants and hanging baskets that is provided by the same source. I only had to call them once for one sprinkler head. For a second, they thought it was just the lubrication, but in the end, I think they determined that it was defective, and as soon as they put a new one in, it functioned correctly. I think they should get an A.”

“I liked the one-time installation, and they never had to come back to fix anything. They fixed seven zones of irrigation. I was referred to them through word of mouth through the neighborhood. I'll give them an A.”

“They have been responsive about contacting us to turn the system on or off in the summer or fall. They blow out the system every fall to get the water out of the pipes that are in the ground, and then they come back in the spring and make sure all the sprinkler heads are working and coming up as planned. I was referred to them by a neighbor. I'd give them an A.”

“They deal with flows, frequencies, and spray. I would give them an A.”

“They're just very efficient. If there's a problem, they're right there. They did a great job with the installation, and they come every year to turn the system on and off. It's fine. I was referred to Interstate via word of mouth by a neighbor. An A is good.”

“I just thought their general work was very good and that they were very up front. They installed an irrigation system. They're pretty good.”

“They actually showed up when they said they were going to be there—there's one thing I liked. I have an in-ground sprinkler. If there's a problem or if there's no problem, they just come out twice a year—once to turn it on, and once to turn it off.”

“Interstate Irrigation & Lighting was excellent and extremely professional, the customer service was excellent, and the maintenance was great. I would give them an A+ rating.”

“The gentleman from Interstate Irrigation & Lighting walked me through their products and services, so I had full knowledge of what the experience would be like and what I would and wouldn't receive. They were quick, and they did a great job of putting the turf back to what it was. I would definitely recommend them to everybody. They absolutely deserve an A+.”

“I like their prompt service. They quickly address all our needs, and they do great work. They installed an irrigation system, and the customer service was excellent. They're an A.”

“They installed a sprinkler system and did some major readjustment. Their customer service was excellent. They deserve an A.”

“I am very happy with Interstate Irrigation & Lighting. They did our sprinkler system turn-on and turn-off service, and I would highly recommend them.”

“The sprinklers are working. There was an initial problem up front, and they were able to fix it for me—they did a good job. I'd give the company an A grade.”

“We had a situation where we had to push some of our sprinklers, so Interstate came, and they pushed it to the levels that we wanted. I found out about them because my neighbors had used them a year before, so I got a referral from them. I would definitely give them an A+—they've been very responsive, and I really like working with them.”

“I have a very good experience with Interstate Irrigation & Lighting. They did a great job. I'd give them an A+.”

“My experience with Interstate was positive. They installed a new sprinkler system for me.”

“The company that was doing my system shut down their business, and I found Interstate Irrigation & Lighting. They were responsive—they called me back immediately and got the appointment set up, whereas other companies I had called said it was going to be two months' wait. They respected my property while they were here, too. I'd give their service an A.”

“We got a sprinkler system through Interstate Irrigation & Lighting. We've been very satisfied with it, and they did a great job installing it. I have no complaints at all.”

“Interstate Irrigation & Lighting installed a sprinkler system. The quality of their work was good—I would give them an A rating.”

“Interstate Irrigation & Lighting did what they said they were going to do. I found them from a neighbor. They get an A.”

“I liked the service and the follow up—the person was very professional. I'm very happy with them. I would give them an A.”

“They put the system in at the beginning of the season, and it was great. I found out about them from two neighbors, and I'd definitely give them an A.”

“I was very happy with the overall work that was done. Everything went great. They're an A.”

“They installed a sprinkler system for me. They were very responsive with the timing, and when there was something wrong with one of the parts of the equipment, they came out and fixed it in a timely way. I found out about them through a reference. I'd give them an A rating.”

“Two or three of my neighbors got bids from Interstate, and they were happy with them, so I hired them, too. They get an A grade.”

“They put in security lighting and irrigation. I really liked their salesman—he seemed very knowledgeable. I'd give their work an A- rating.”

“They were very accommodating to our schedules, and they did a really good job. That was the first time we'd had a sprinkler system. When we thought we had a problem, they came right back over and checked it, and it was fine. The customer service was always responsive, everybody was polite and friendly, and there was always somebody there with whom I could communicate with if I had any questions or problems. I'd give their service an A-.”

“They showed up on time, they had a full crew here, and they got the job done quickly. They worked in the front and side yard. I got their name from their neighbor. I think I got a second estimate, but I decided to go with Interstate because I liked the guy who came out to work with us. I'd give them an A- and I have already recommended them.”

“We love Interstate Irrigation. They're always professional, nice, and on time; and their customer service is 100 percent. They're wonderful. They always take care of us, and they did some installation and repairs for us. They dug up some things in the backyard and you can't even tell—it's perfect. They've done a great job for us. They deserve an A+.”

“Interstate Irrigation was wonderful. They turned on my sprinklers and adjusted everything after winter. The workers were wonderful, very nice. They explained to me exactly what they were doing, answered any of my questions, and made sure I understood how they had it set up. They're an A+.”

“Interstate Irrigation put in our sprinkler system. They were great, they were responsive, and everything was perfect. I'd give them an A+.”

“We used Interstate Irrigation & Lighting, and they were very, very good. We had some problems, which could have been due to the original sprinkler system hookup—it broke, and they came back and took care of everything that they needed to take care of. Everything was working well after that point. I haven't had a chance to try it out this year, but they'll be coming back to turn the system on. I would give them an A+ grade, because I think that the problems that we had were based on a prior sprinkler system company that we were working with.”

“Interstate does irrigation. They're an A. They do excellent work. They put an outdoor irrigation system in. The workers were polite, knowledgeable, and hardworking. We've used them for the past five or six years.”

“Interstate did the job right, unlike other companies in the area. They did an installation. I chose them because of their reputation. They did the job in a quick enough time frame, and they didn't have to come back to fix anything. I have already recommended them. I would give them an A+.”

“Interstate Irrigation was on time, they did great work, and they cleaned up after everything. They did an installation for the whole yard. Our neighbors used them, and I would recommend them. Nothing in particular stands out about the people in the office. I would give them an A+.”

“First, I liked the business office and the way they handled it. Others didn't do it quite as well. They completed an entire lawn sprinkler system. I'd recommend them and give them an A. I was just very pleased. They had good follow-up.”

“Everything was OK. Interstate did the work in time and within budget. It works OK. They did both a repair and an installation for me. They would get an A. We are happy.”

“They were on time, and the product worked. It was a sprinkler system, and that could be terrible if it's not done correctly. They got the system installed in a timely manner. They didn't have to come back to fix anything they didn't get right the first time. It was five zones. I heard about them from a referral from a neighbor. I would recommend them, and I would use them again. Nothing really stood out about them. Everything went relatively smooth, so I would give them an A+.”

“Interstate was fine. When they said they would be here, they were here. They got the work done neatly without much fuss at all. I've been using their services since this summer. I found them in Best Pick Reports. I would use them again and give them an A.”

“They put in an irrigation system and did a good job. They had to come back and fix something they didn't get right, but they came right away and coordinated well. The system was for the whole yard. There were two things that they had to fix. They put in the system for a neighbor, too. I would recommend them. I'm using them going forward. They service the system every year. I'd give them an A+, even though they had the two things that had to be replaced. But it was pretty painless.”

“They installed the system, but we have not had too much experience. For the time being, it has been very good. The work held up. I would absolutely recommend them. I would say A.”

“They installed what they needed to install on time, and they finished early. They haven't had to come back to fix anything. It was just an installation they were doing. They were recommended to me by a colleague of mine. Everybody was very professional. I would recommend them, and I would use them again—A.”

“Everything was positive with them. We had a little bit of a hiccup with one of the lines during the installation, but they owned up to it and fixed everything. They didn't have to come back to fix anything. They just winterized the system, and that was it. They're going to come back in the springtime. We have a one-year maintenance agreement. My father used them, so we used them. I would give them an A.”

“It was good. They installed the system, and I had no complaint about that. They completed the work in a reasonable time frame. I don't believe they had to come back to fix anything. It was the full yard—front, and then back. My neighbor and I got the work done together. I would definitely recommend them. They deserve an A.”

“Interstate Irrigation installed our sprinkler system, and they were awesome. They have excellent customer service, and they're very responsive and professional. The consultation was thorough and informative, which was comforting. He made us feel very confident about our choice to use them. I would absolutely recommend them to others. They're an A+.”

“Everything with Interstate Irrigation was great. I was very happy and pleased with their service. They did a great job. They installed a sprinkler system for me, and they left my yard immaculate—I couldn't tell that they installed sprinklers. They really exceeded my expectations. I'd give them an A.”

“Interstate Irrigation installed a sprinkler system for me. They were excellent. A lot of my neighbors use them—they do really good work. I've recommended them to others. Their service is excellent.”

“Interstate Irrigation did a terrific job. They were well organized and did the job in a very efficient manner. Interstate installed an entire sprinkler system—11 zones. I would recommend them without reservation, and I’d give them an A grade.”

“Interstate Irrigation is personable and professional. We had them fix the sprinkler system that our initial contractor had installed incorrectly. They also added on to our system. They were recommended to me, and I would recommend them to someone else. Interstate did a good job. I would give them an A.”

“Interstate is professional—everything was good from start to finish. I would recommend them highly. They installed a sprinkler system for a five-acre yard and the lighting around the pool and the front of the house. I’d give them an A.”
