    What should a 4 head sprinkler system cost? Timer and 150 feet of tube...

    At least $100 per foot of "tube". I'd say around $2000 for the "timer".

    and make sure you get the gold sprinklers...say around $1000 each.

    So your probably want to bid in a little extra for labor, say $10000, So I'd bid it at $31,000.

    You forgot to factor in pouring a concrete base for your pvc tubes and valves. That will add another 2K.

    you need a backflow. where are you getting water from? does the pipe or "tube" need trenched or pulled in. what size pipe, water pressure, flow rate. 4 heads spread over 150' better be good pressure. etc, etc, etc
