    Is $35/man hr plus materials a good quote for irrigation install? Consider this is my first attempt at an irrigation install

    We (and many other that I know) charge a flat fee per zone for irrigation installs. I have also seen a charge per foot of pipe laid. Naturally, you need to figure your material costs (pipe, heads, couplers, etc) and find out exactly what the job will cost you in materials then put a markup on materials and add your labor and profit margin.

    4-5 zones should be able to be laid in a day from start to finish. Up to 8 zones in a day and a half.

    Good luck.
