So, you want to go into the lawn sprinkler business?  Well, people can get quite innovative in their quest to earn income and one way to do this is to get involved in a lawn sprinkler business. Before finding clients it will be necessary to obtain the tools of the professional lawn sprinkler contractor. Entrepreneurs are able to find these at most do-it-yourself stores.

Some might say it is counterproductive for me to give such advise, since I own a lawn sprinkler company after all but this is an educational blog.  Besides, it takes a heck of a lot more than a blog post to get started in this business so I can afford to part with this knowledge, just in case you were curious. 🙂

In terms of marketing, it will be a good idea to get a website and ensure that it is optimized so that people in the area are able to find the business. Advertising in local magazines and local classified newspapers is bound to get the phone ringing as well. Advertising is important as the best business, employees and equipment are meaningless without clients.  This very site you are on is one of a few outlets used to teach folks like yourselves in addition to attracting new clients.

There are certain websites that specialize in selling the components that are needed to do this kind of work. Many of the websites have self help sections that give advice on what is needed and how to go about getting the job done. All the necessary parts will be available for people to buy for personal or commercial use but beware, competition is stiff with players who been around for decades.

Some of the components include back flow devices, valves for sprinklers, tubing, irrigation tools, sprays and a host of other accessories. Information on various designs are available from the outlets and it is possible to get a sprinkler installation manual. Advice on protecting the system during the colder months will be available as well.

Some homeowners are technically minded and might enjoy installing their own system. They too, will need all the equipment to do the job. It is possible that they may need a little more technical support than someone who does the work for a living.  If all this seems a bit daunting to you, you are always welcome to let us do the job for you!

While it is great to have the tools of the professional lawn sprinkler contractor and installing this in your yard, please be mindful to save water. All of these issues can be discussed with the retailer. Systems such as these are much more convenient than having to stand and water the yard and the flowers.  If this is your quest, I wish you a good journey!
