I worked on an underground sprinkling crew for two summers back when I was in college. Nicholsons is so far ahead of the competition that they don't even have a close second. They were not only 700.00 less than their closet competitor. I priced out doing everything myself and only paid 300.00 more to have them do it. They didn't mess around and walked all the property lines and went over the details. I stayed for the entire job and they showed me some really neat things that I was unfamiliar with. Anyway, great price, great guys, great job.

My husband and I had our underground sprinkling system done by Nicholsons three years ago. They had they best prices and best refferences. They quoted us multiple brands and gave us twelve equal payments with no interest. Everyting works perfert. I don't know how they can keep their prices so low, but they do and we are happy. Look no further, Nicholsons is the best.

2 husbands 2 houses and 1 Nicholsons. Nicholsons has done two separate houses for me. The service is excellent and they are always there when I need them. I use them for my spring start ups and fall shutdowns. I like the fact that I can get an appointment at 7:00 PM. because I work until 6. Almost forgot, they have better prices than the competition. Hopefully I never have to move again. If I do, Nicholsons will be doing the job. Lexi

I have used Nicholsons since the second year they opened their doors. I have always had good service with the exception of a service technician named Isaac. I called an the issue was resolved immediately. The reason for this review today is two fold. The firs is to simply state that Nicholsons is a top notch company. They are not perfect as I did have one issue over the 20 years they have serviced my system. Speaking with friends and neighbors and hearing their experiences with other companies. We have no interest in switching. The second is that I read a poor review online. Call me nosy, but I wanted to know. I called the office and Chris called me back later that evening. It was a little late( 8:15 PM.) but he did return the call the same day. I asked him what was going on and I applaud him on his response. He told me that a customer had their system winterized late in the year and expected it to be warrantied free of charge. Straight to the point is always the way to go in my book.

I have read over the reviews. Amazing how many are from the same people and how many reviews of this company use the same words/phrases. We had them install our system, got bad pipe, paid to have it reinstalled and are still fighting with them. They are dishonest, and do not abide by their contracts. Do your self a favor, find someone else.

Nicholsons installed our last system many years ago. Jon had done the work for us and he did a nice job. We recently built and had the pleasure of meeting Chris. His knowledge and professionalism were unmatched. Even though Nicholsons installed our last system we wanted to get a few quotes. One quote was on a hand written piece of paper. The other quote arrived almost a week later and was just over 700.00 higher. Chris had the quote in my Email the morning after he met with us. These guys give new meaning to the word efficiency. The best part is the mosquito repellent system. He told me that if it didn't work he would give me a refund. Well, it works very well. If you call, make sure you ask for Chris.

We called Nicholsons to have our system started for the year. Chris called us back and recommenced we wait a few weeks due to the weather. My co-worker had already had their system turned on and had a friend. We had a guy do it on the side for 50.00. Well, a few nights ago the thing outside froze and water went everywhere. We called my co workers friend. He just said "sorry". He wouldn't even come out and shut the water off. I felt awful and Called Nicholsons. Mike and another gentleman came out with in two hours and shut the water off. They didn't even charge me. The said we would worry about it in a few weeks when the weather was better. Nicholsons is our sprinkling guy from now on. They are the few that still care.

We have been very happy with our sprinkler system. Nicholsons originally installed the system when we built our house eight years ago. Since then we have had Nicholsons winterize every year and inspect for any damage. We would highly recommend Nicholsons for anyone considering a lawn sprinkling system.

Here is my take on Nicholson's: Positives: Lower price(initially),0% financing.Negatives: 1) I was one of the many homeowners who had bad pipe installed in 2008. Problems started first week and then progressed from there. 2) This is the second time (2005) Nicholson's has installed bad pipe according to other reviewers. 3)The BBB still has a disclaimer about the flood of negative reviews they were receiving in 2008-09. Nicholson's rating never dropped below an A- during that time. 4) Some of these reviews on here are suspect, a lot of them are written the same. Many double reviews from another website. 5) One review on here dated 2010 is verbatim to a personally written letter they give you in an information packet from 2005-2006. 6) Questionable installation and wiring techniques per other professionals who inspected my system after it was failing repeatedly. My advice: Go with Grapids, more money up front but they use superior materials and better workmanship.

I had my underground sprinkling system installed by Nicholsons a few weeks ago. They had the best price and the work was excellent. The lawn looks so nice you can't even tell they were here. My father in law just gave them a call. I checked two other places and they are by far the best. I would highly reccomend them.

Nicholsons installed my underground sprinkling system seven years ago. The system has work flawlessly. Sam just winterized my system. I can't tell you enough about how nice it is to have an honest company to deal with year after year. Thank You!

I would like to say Sam did a great job today. He went above and beyond to help me with what I needed. I will be telling my friends about Sam and your company. Thank-you.

The service and installation from Nicholson's was awesome! They answered all of our questions and installed the system quicker than expected. The value was much better than anticipated. Thank you for doing such a great job. I will recommend Nicholson's to any of my friends looking at installing sprinkling.
