Trusted Service Providers (Angies List Local)

We have been discussing trying to create a place to list local service providers we have had good experiences with. If you are receiving this post via email and have a good contractor / service provider you want to share with the sub please click here and comment on this post.

So we fired up our sprinklers today and looks like I need to replace a sprinkler head in the front. No big deal I have done them in the past but it's been a while. I dug it up and it appears to be a bit beyond my pay grade. Does anyone know someone that would come out reasonably to fix one sprinkler head? Any suggestions would be appreciated.



PS - Please us the comment feature on this post to post out service providers.
