    I live an NJ and was wondering what it would cost to have a sprinkler system installed.

    I have about 0.9 acres which includes a house and driveway on that .9 acres.

    No sidewalks to go under dont need to run any lines under the driveway. Its pretty much wide open.

    What is a ballpark estimate for getting a sprinkler system installed

    Brian, you have some very competative rates for such specs. Probably add another $10K down here.

    They are just kidding with you. The variables are so great it is impossible to give an estimate. What do you have for a point of connection? How many zones does it need, is it all lawn, what about planting beds, how much pressure and flow are there? All this goes into consideration.

    There are guys that will figure the smallest number of zones to cover the ground and then times that by a predetermined number for a price. Probably end up with a problem system where the shrubs get watered with the lawn, too many heads on a zone, etc. Each system needs it's own design and therefore it's own price. Hard to do via email.

    Best bet is to call licensed guys, get estimates and then check out some of the systems they have done in the past.
