Orlando came out with little notice and fixed all my problems. Great service! Great price! Super value. Can't recommend him highly enough. He's my guy from now on.
Orlando is great. He does what he says, does it when he says he'll do it, and does it well. All at reasonable prices.

Many thanks for another 5 star review.. I am very grateful.. As of this reply, we have relocated Alpha1 to St. Johns, Florida 32259.. I have contacted Cox / Kudzu many times and they have completely failed to update our site to reflect said move.. Absolutely derelict and 100% unsatisfactory performance on their part.. Because of Cox / Kudzu incompetence and ignorance,, I am forced to notify you all using this method.. Those of you who know me also know I hold myself and others to high standards of quality service.. Best wishes,, good health and fortune to all of our Atlanta area clients..
We couldn't get anybody to come out to fix our rainwater harvest system, or even return our calls. Orlando came right out, did a thorough diagnosis, got the part and had it fixed in a few days. Great communicator, excellent work, just the best to deal with.

Orlando Vasallo came out the very next morning after my initial call. Orlando explained what was happening to the irrigation system that I inherited from the previous owner and why. He finished a long list of items quickly and efficiently. He never tried to oversell services or equipment. And he charged me $35 less than his original quote. Without hesitation, I can wholeheartedly recommend Orlando.

Work done 3/28/15. Orlando operated my existing system and mapped out coverage of each sprinkler head and each zone. Recommended relocation of heads or changing of head style to give perfect coverage with least amount of water wasted. Performed all work while there and the price was far less than I expected to pay. He was extremely knowledgeable about irrigation, piping, various options, and familiar with required codes. I would highly recommend.

Orlando has a special place in our hearts. After 4 years of living with what we were told was a "natural" waterlogged area in our front yard, Orlando quickly zeroed in on the culprit..3 leaking sprinkler valves...He dug deep into mud, replaced the valves and then cleaned up the area so that it was impossible to tell that work had even been done there....problem resolved! Orlando has a great work ethic. He is punctual, attentive and hard working and also does follow up calls to insure his work was successful. He took the time to walk us through the operating procedures for the sprinkler control unit and made sure that we understood how to set it for several programs so that all zones were timed properly. No other professional took the time to do that with us before. We are thrilled that we have found someone we can trust and who really cares about his work and his clients.

He showed up early, identified the problem quickly, fixed it inexpensively and verbally directed while I operated the sprinkler system control so there would be no doubt I could set it myself. And he was funny! What more do you need?

Who knew all of these years I'd been being taken advantage of?!? My neighbor told me how happy they were with Alpha1 so having had less than mediocre service from my previous irrigation provider, I got the number and called to have my system 'winterized'. When I spoke to Orlando, he FULLY explained the difference between a winterization and a shut down of the system. I have been paying nearly $250 every year for what was supposed to be a winterization when that is not even POSSIBLE on the system that my previous provider installed! Alpha1 charged the cost of a normal service call and honestly did MORE to protect my system than the previous company EVER did for 1/3 the price. I'm fuming mad at the dishonesty of most people and companies these days, but am THRILLED to have found someone that rises far above the standard and takes pride in his name and work. Call Orlando, you will be glad you did.

We have had problems with our irrigation system since it was installed two years ago. Our water bills were astronomical. After many attempts to get the original installer to fix the system, we finally called Orlando. He had to replace almost everything. He was prompt, knowledgeable, professional and very reasonable in price. Believe me, don't waste your time with anyone else!

Thanks for the great review Mrs. C.. I'm glad to finally resolve your irrigation problems and I feel sorry you had to deal with incompetence from your previous provider.. I must constantly address similar complaints from many homeowners..
Orlando Vasallo, owns and operates Alpha1 Irrigation and Lighting. On two occasions during last ninety days, he responded super fast to my calls re leaking water lines in my yard. His work is top notch and prices are fair and reasonable. He is recommended highly.

After reading the reviews on Kudzu I decided to give Orlando a call. Orlando showed up at my door right on time and gave me all the information I needed to make my decision. Orlando is a true professional who is dedicated and does what he says he'll do. I highly recommend Orlando to anyone needing an irrigation installation!

I appreciated Orlando's honest and hardworking attitude. He was punctual when he came for the estimate, followedup with us before he came to do the job (did the utility companies mark the area) and when he came for the job. He not only took care of the broken line, but repaired a sprinkler head and another drainage line. It is a dirty job digging in the dirt. However he always presented himself clean cut, wonderful manners and very professional

Orlando Vasallo came out immediately after I called even though it was after hours (7-9 p.m.) to save us from the leak in our sprinkler system! It's nice to know that some people are still there for you when you need them in an emergency situation! Another sprinkler company couldn't help us and did not seem to think that our leak was urgent enough to help us out and get the job done--they offered to put us on the schedule in two more days!! But with a leak that the City of Roswell said was losing 3 Gallons of water per HOUR, we could not wait another 2 days to have it fixed!! So we called Orlando Vasallo who just came right out (within 2 minutes of me calling, he was out the door) and fixed the problem. He got the job done THAT evening!! Quickly, efficiently and at a very low price!! Orlando also did an irrigation job for my neighbor and they are VERY happy with the integrity of his work. One company quoted them an astronomical amount to do the irrigation system and told them they would have to dig up their driveway. But Orlando did it all very inexpensively and without having to dig up the driveway, saving them TIME and MONEY and hassle!! Integrity in the workforce is hard to come by these days, and so I support people who still have that integrity of work and character! Give Orlando a call! He will not disappoint!

As a result of tree cutting/stump grinding, couple water line pvc pipes for our Springler system were ripped apart in one of our zones. Orlando showed up on time, fix the pipes, and even make adjustments (replaced one) to some of the springler nozzles. The final charge was less than what we were quoted over the phone. If you're looking for someone who not only knows what he is doing but also charges you a very fair price, Orlando is the man.....
