Berardi Irrigation

Hi. I'm Gabe Berardi. Since 1998, Berardi Irrigation has been installing and servicing irrigation systems for commercial, residential, and golf course applications. Installation is a major part of our business but it’s not everything. Berardi Irrigation has a strong focus on personal service, water consumption, reliability, and superior design. After the appointment for a free estimate has been set, Gabe will personally walk your property, designing a system which will best fit your yard’s needs. Gabe will also describe how he arrived at the personal quote which is delivered on site. He will also be happy to explain exactly what you are getting and address any questions or concerns you may have. Gabe may even suggest the “separate meter option” which is allowed in some towns and can save you money on water in the long run.

This company was originally very prompt when I first reached out. An employee came to walk the property with me in a Wednesday in March. He was very pleasant and seemed knowledgeable. He promised me a proposal a d estimate by Friday. Nothing. I followed up by email see see when I would receive them. No response. I am annoyed that the wasted my time doing a visit to the property with no follow up. ...

For us, A Yard and a Half was a multi-year nightmare. In short, for a rate of $300/mo for 1/8th acre with nothing special, our yard looked like it was an abandoned lot. We signed up for regular service in addition to specific maintenance items, but in spite of pre-payment nearly ever time they had to be hounded or occasionally flattered in order to show up. Our grass was frequently over 6" long an...

I contacted them and they politely responded a few days later. They said that they had a $3,000 minimum commitment for any job so we should look elsewhere for our job. Wow! Obviously, we looked elsewhere.

Service Provider Response

We wish we were able to meet all of the demand for the variety of landscaping services that exist. Since that's not realistic, we try to only provide estimates for work where we believe we can provide the best value. Over the years, we have learned that there are other providers with different business models who can offer low-skill labor at a more competitive cost. Our $3,000 minimum is an attemp...

We met with Steven who is the estimator/designer for the company. He was extremely thorough at explaining the work that the job would entail and he took very careful measurements of the various grades of our sloping driveway. We had a second meeting after he had worked up the cost and he gave us three options based on differing grades of materials. However, it simply ended up being a more expensiv...

Description of Work
We were curious to find out about repaving our driveway with permeable pavers, but had no previous knowledge of whether it was the right solution for our driveway.

Service Provider Response

Thank you for your review, [Member Name Removed]. We're happy to hear that Steve, one of our designers, provided you with the information you needed. People are often surprised by the cost of permeable paving because of the extent of below-ground preparation necessary for 100% of rain water to get back into the soil. And yes, please do reach out in the future if there's another project you'd like ...
