highest quality products
Firman Irrigation & Landscape Lighting is the premier irrigation and landscape lighting company in northern MI. Our designer is a certified irrigation designer, and contractor through the irrigation association.
Your sprinkler system will be installed using only the highest quality products and with the least amount of impact on your existing landscape and trees. Our designer is also a certified arborist so you can rest assured that your trees will not be damaged in the process. Your sprinkler system will be designed so that it will use the minimum about of water possible by separating sunny areas from the shade, grass from the lawn, slopes from flat areas, etc. This is also much better for your lawn and landscape since overwatering can be just as bad as underwatering. You will also be provided with a drawing of your sprinkler system upon completion. Our staff through training and experience truly understand what it takes to install and maintain a sprinkler system so that it will use the least amount of water and produce a healthy landscape.
Irrigation monitoring: For anyone who doesn’t continually monitor their sprinkler system on their own, we would highly recommend this service. We offer this service on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. It consists of adjusting the controller for the current weather, making sure all the heads are aligned properly, adding risers as the plants grow, and making any repairs that are needed. This is a very popular service because it saves water, makes sure your landscaping is getting the right amount of water throughout the season, and the visits cost much less than a regular service call. Let us know if you would like to add this service.

New! Irrigation Audits:
Audits are a process in which we determine exactly where the wet spots and dry spots are in the system and measure distribution uniformity. Over-watering sections of your lawn to compensate for the dry areas can cause a lot of problems including shallow roots, fungus, increased fertilizer needs, increased mowing, and disease. Please contact us if you are interested in an irrigation audit in the Spring.
