Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
What is going to be involved with your new installation? What kind of parts? How many zones?

How long will it take you to install it?

Here is one article on my blog that might help.

Sprinkler head replacement bidding pitfalls.

There are a lot of variables here.
Are you installing a backflow? If so, what type? RP? PVB?
Digital controller? Rain sensor?

Nine "heads"? Rotors or sprays?

Irrigation installation costs vary widely by region. In Central Florida some guys are as cheap as $250 per zone. In other parts of the country contractors get $1000 per zone.

Your best bet is to go talk to the people at your irrigation supply house to get ballpark figures for your area.

Can you tell us a little bit how these different factors effect the ultimate price of the job?

For instance, how much extra is it to add a backflow?

How do the costs differ for rotor or spray heads?
