If I installed a system, and did a good job and got passed up for the expansion I might get offended a little. Also when it is time for you to call the legit irrigation co to come and fix the landscapers problems, dont expect any breaks on the repair.
Also- I do not know what your legit irrigation co's contract looks like, but that would void any warranty I had offered. You might check into the warranty before hand, bc if the landscaper is not as good as he says he could eat up your 700 in savings fast.
