    I just moved to Texas from Mississippi. I was doing irrigation installs for $800-$1200 a zone depending on conditions. I did not charge differently if someone had a million dollar house or a 100,000 house. Irrigation is irrigation.

    That is excellent dana. We need to keep that link on file and just post it without comment when we get these how much questions.

    I agree. it's probably better than me and everybody else taking shots at the person asking, and getting angry. There is no standard formula, and costs vary from company to company. I wouldn't bid "per zone", but backing out the numbers when done is good to see.

    Only experience, and years of it, enables one to "ballpark" a system. I spent many years/ hours going through every fitting cost, field labor, "unknown soil conditions" to come up with my "per zone" number and you all know what that was. Sometimes I was right on, sometimes I was high and passed the savings on to the client: I never lost.
