If your lawn or garden is in bad shape, you may need to upgrade your sprinkler system. Don’t worry, we’ve made a list of companies that install the best sprinkler systems in Edmonton to give your lawn the care that it needs!
These companies have the best offerings and installation services for automated sprinkler systems. We answer some FAQs you may have about sprinkler systems as well.
How much are sprinkler system installations in Edmonton?
There are a bunch of factors that affect the cost of sprinkler system installations. Because different lawns and gardens have specific watering needs, it is hard to come up with an estimate without having an irrigation specialist take a look at the yard.
The coverage for lawns or gardens are broken up into zones, in which sprinkler systems are installed. Ultimately, the number of zones needed on a property determine a large chunk of the cost of the entire service, on top of labor costs.
On average, zone costs begin at $500. The number of zones to be installed depends on the size and watering needs of your lawn or garden.
With this in mind, having a larger lawn does not necessarily mean using up more zones (and in turn, racking up a higher bill) than smaller, more cramped areas. Other factors come into play such as obstacles, different landscapes, and types of equipment used.
There are also other options that may add to the cost. Some of these are different types of sprinkler heads from different manufacturers, lines and valves, timers and controllers, and different irrigation options such as drip lines.
And as expected, cost of water, electricity, and repairs also determine long-term costs. Regular maintenance can help keep the system running smoothly and minimize additional repair services.
Our Picks for the Best Sprinkler Systems
We picked the companies in our list based on the following criteria:
1. The Rain Man Irrigation and Plumbing
|SERVICES||Residential/commercial installations, plumbing, heating, water spray parks, irrigation repairs and renovations, winterization, landscape lighting|
|ADDRESS||10215 - 219 St., Edmonton, AB T6S 2C3|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon-Fri: 8AM-4PM|
The Rain Man Irrigation and Plumbing has been providing their commercial and residential clients with the best irrigation services and more for more than 40 years already.
The company assures customers that the sprinklers for their residential installations include their own custom copper headers, which are more durable than plastic headers. With this, you can expect that the irrigation system for your yard will last a long time.
The list of their past commercial projects is impressive, including sports fields, hospitals, rooftops, restaurants, department stores, gas stations, indoor greenhouses, meter vaults, drip lines… Well, you get the picture.
The rest of their past projects are listed in their online gallery showing photos of each commercial or public space. They’ve also been booked for waterparks, fountains, brooks, pumping systems, and golf courses.
We think their extensive experience in various other services involving pipes and waterworks makes them the ideal experts to call.
The company’s expert technicians do repairs in the summer. They can also offer a check-up to see if the existing system is still fit for changing watering needs or yard modifications.
Winterization is available within the one-year warranty that comes with the service. This includes the first fall winterizing process and the spring startup the following year.
On top of their expertise in irrigation systems, they also offer a host of other services such as landscape lighting installation, plumbing, and heating installations.
The company is accredited by the Better Business Bureau, and is a member of the Alberta Chapter of the Irrigation Association. They have the status of Certified Irrigation Contractor.
Great job for a fair price
“We use Rain Man every year to winterize the underground sprinkler system. They do a great job for a fair price. Always friendly and on time.”––Craig James, Google Reviews
Always our first choice
“Great company to work with. My family and I have used Rainman for both personal and for our business for over 20 years. Always our first choice for a reason!”––Don Clement, Google Reviews
2. Green Thumb Irrigation
|SERVICES||Residential/commercial installations, spring startup, winterization, repairs, maintenance|
|ADDRESS||PO Box 38087, Capilano Post Office, Edmonton AB T6A3Y6|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon-Fri: 7:30AM-7PM
Green Thumb Irrigation banks on their 40 years of experience to provide clients a high level of expertise and customer service. With this much experience in both residential and commercial projects, it’s easy to see that they know the ins and outs of irrigation systems.
Their professionals walk clients through the entire installation process, starting from zone planning down to repairs and maintenance.
While they’ve been around since the 70s, the company never fails to keep up with the times. We appreciate that they use a pipe-pulling system that ensures minimal damage to the lawn.
We also like that their services come with a 3-year warranty on the materials used, and a one-year warranty on labor. To remain eligible for these warranties, the customer must observe regular maintenance and the full winterization and startup process.
Clients who prefer to do the work themselves will be thrilled to hear that Green Thumb has DIY irrigation kits on offer, from top suppliers Toro and Rainbird.
They don’t leave you alone though, as they still provide the option of an assisted DIY, and can even be called in after your installation for head adjustments.
“Bradley was great to work with––very efficient and kept me informed at all times of what was happening. The cost was more than reasonable and the work was very good. I would highly recommend Green Thumb Irrigation!!!”––Dianne Balon, Google Reviews
Crew great to work with
“Brad and his crew were great to work with fixing our existing sprinkler system that was in when we bought the house 3 years ago. He managed to sort out a problem with a zone that didn’t work and it even came in less then the original quote. Recommend this crew to anyone.”––Debbie McLeod
3. In-Depth Irrigation Inc.
|SERVICES||Installations, repairs, maintenance, winterization/startup|
|ADDRESS||271 Heath Rd, Edmonton, Alberta, T6R 1V4, Canada|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon-Fri: 8AM-7PM
Since 2015, In-Depth Irrigation has been installing sprinklers using the most advanced methods. They also offer smart automated systems to help clients cut down on water usage.
We think it’s good that they use a vibratory plow to install their systems, ensuring minimal ground disturbance so that your lawn will look as good as it was in just 10 days. This technology gives more precise and faster installations.
We also like that customers have the option to choose their advanced smart system. This system is connected to the Weather Network and can easily be controlled through an app.
Because it is connected to a weather service, the system automatically determines the optimal watering times based on the conditions wherever you may be.
Finally, it’s worth noting that they provide a three-year warranty on Rainbird materials, two-year in their timers, and one-year on labor. They also offer free online estimates.
Functioning once again
“We had an issue with our controller on our existing system that was installed by another company. I was going through Google reaching out to various companies looking for help. In Depth stepped up even though it wasn’t their system. By the next day I had a functioning system once again. Thanks for the help.”––Shawn Kosowan, Google Reviews
Could not be happier
“We were very impressed with In-Depth irrigation. We contacted Dane on the long weekend and had email conversations that same day. We needed some rather routine maintenance on our sprinkler and drip system and they did this the next day after agreeing on cost which was very reasonable. The work was done quickly and efficiently with a team of three people. Could not be happier.”––Brian Rothwell, Google Reviews

I highly recommend the Irrigation Imperium team.”––Derek Whitehouse-Strong, Google Reviews
Ensured everything was running smoothly
“Just had them come and test my underground sprinkler system…we bought a house in the winter with one already installed.
