Have not used this before, hopefully I post this right...

Saw advertisement for irrigation tune-up in newspaper? Anyone used CK Farm business? Opinions?

Do a search here and you'll see the vast majority of us use and recommend Jim Baumgartner. Sorry, I don't have his number handy but I'm sure someone will supply it if you can't find it.

Jim B. is the only way to go. He's reliable, shows up on time and is knowledgeable. He did an evaluation / inspection for us for $25. Then gave us an estimate on repairs. After fixing broken sprinkler heads, etc. he programmed our control box at no additional cost. I have never heard anyone give him a bad evaluation.

I would imagine the estimate should be free to start??? Just Thinking out loud to myself.

An evaluation/inspection is not free, nor should it be. The tech runs the system through each zone, checking each and every spray head on that zone. We have 7 zones and 40+ heads/rotors in total. I used Joe Tucker (as Jim was booked solid). Joe is excellent, making several adjustments to a few sprinkler heads, including replacing one of the heads so it provided a more suitable pattern coverage, as well as making several timing adjustments in the box. Total cost $50.00. The other bonus is that Joe will explain to you how to make necessary adjustments, so in the future (if you chose) you can service your irrigation system on your own.

Scott who does work with Mansfield Landacaping is really good on irrigation also. Had him redo all of my irrigation hook ups after pool put in. Had to redo the back yard zone. Great job and quick and price was the best by far..

Joe Tucker is good. Just had him repair an irrigation line that I broke. Prompt, more than competent and knowledgeable. He does general irrigation work as well as repairs. Very personable young man. Says Jim is his uncle which is probably why is he was trained by Jim. Joe is my goto guy for future irrigation needs.
