  • Jaimie and his team showed up as planned and got our system (which is not small) running after we performed massive landscaping work. They really went out of their way to get it right, coming back twice to adjust sprinklers after we planted in the landscaped area and the 'lay of the land' changed. We were only too happy to have them handle the opening/closing activities each year. We feel lucky to have found Northern Rainmakers.

  • We had Northern Rainmakers (NRs) install an irrigation system for our front and back yard, as well as replace the sod. Jaime and his team did a fantastic job! I had several other (highly rated) companies come in to provide quotes and not only was NRs the most reasonable but Jaime took the time to explain all aspects of the job (layout, materials, connections, etc). Other companies did not go this extra mile. Anyways, I would definitely recommend this company to others.

  • To date, this is one of the best, if not the best, experiences we've had with any residential contractor. Jamie (the owner) was extremely knowlegeable and punctual and although the system he recommended to us was slightly more expensive than the lowest quote we received (around 10%), it was much more elaborate. Jamie took the time to review the layout of the trees and plants in the backyard in great detail, which is not what the other two contractors did. We also had to make a few minor changes within the first few weeks as a result of some changes in the backyard and he was nice enough to make the changes at no charge - which is pretty much unheard of these days. I would highly recommend Northern Rainmakers for your irrigation needs and that's exactly what we were told after contacting a few references.

    M.D., Markham
  • Thanks for all of the work you guys did, the grass and perennials are growing like never before, it really is a great system to have. We can actually go away for a weekend without coming back to brown grass. We will definitely recommend you to our friends, good luck.

    Mark and Sheila Berg
  • It is amazing to see those sprinklers rise up from the ground, it is a pleasure not dragging the hose all over the yard. Your men were very professional and we are very pleased. Take care.

    Joanne Little, Toronto
  • We went away for two weeks and the grass is so green, my husband is so happy with the sprinkler system, you have saved him a lot of work. Thank you so much.

    Rita Melberg
  • Thanks for the clean and tidy job I can't even tell that you were here. It really looks great.

    Thank you, Jen and Steve.

Five good reasons for installing an automatic sprinkler system

  1. To protect your landscaping investment.
  2. To increase your property value.
  3. To save time, no more hand watering.
  4. To create even watering throughout your lawn and garden.
  5. To avoid worrying when going on vacation.
To maintain your garden so that it always looks beautifully healthy it is imperative to ensure it receives adequate water, particularly during times of drought.

By installing an automatic irrigation system into your outdoor landscape you can be certain that your plants will never lack water and will be able to bloom and thrive unhindered even when you don’t have time (or forget!) to turn on the hose.

At Northern Lights and Rainmakers Inc. we install three different types of automatic irrigation systems all of which can be customized to be effective in your size and style of outdoor area.

Our spray systems are ideal for use in Toronto’s smaller residential gardens and yards and are normally more than adequate for watering lawns, bedding plantings and shrubbery. These systems are easy to maintain and use and are generally very dependable. By simply adjusting the spray nozzle you can change the position, angle and flow of the water so that all your plantings receive the most effective form of irrigation to suit their needs.

Our rotary systems are most effective in larger open areas such as parks and sports fields. Each revolving spray head can throw water in as much as a 40 foot radius at any one time allowing a vast expanse to be watered from each irrigation point. These systems actually use less water than spray systems, even though the velocity and radius of watering is greater.

Our drip irrigation systems are the best in terms of water conservation and plant health and these are the systems that, for environmental reasons, we prefer to install. Drip irrigation is a slow and effective way to ensure that all your plantings receive adequate amounts of water throughout both day and night. The great advantages of drip irrigation systems are that they:

  • Use less water
  • Drastically reduce amount of water lost to evaporation
  • Direct every drop of water to where it will be used
  • Can accommodate hanging baskets and planters
  • Can extend into odd-shaped and narrow areas.

In order to be most effective drip irrigation systems have to be correctly installed so that the network of low pressure water pipes reaches all areas of your landscape.

With a Northern Lights and Rainmakers Inc. irrigation installation you can rest at ease knowing that your garden will thrive – and for your peace of mind we back up this claim with our full 3 year warranty on all parts and labor.
