How Are Sprinkler Installation Costs Determined?
Every lawn is different, which makes coming up with an exact sprinkler installation cost pretty much impossible without seeing your yard first. The best way to determine a sprinkler system cost for your property is to schedule a free, no-obligation lawn audit with an irrigation specialist from GTA Irrigation & Lighting. You can also learn more about what contributes to the irrigation installation cost so you can set realistic expectations and ask smarter questions during your lawn audit.
How Much Does a Sprinkler System Cost Per Zone?
In the Greater Toronto Area, the average irrigation installation cost per zone usually starts around $500, with most homes ranging between 4 to 7 zones. However, it’s imperative to understand that the number of zones your property will have (and what each zone will cost) will vary greatly—and isn’t determined by the size of your lot alone. Just because you have a large property doesn’t mean your cost will be through the roof, and equally, if you live on a small lot doesn’t mean your entire system will only cost you $500.
Zones are determined by a mix of size and the individual watering needs of your lawns. For instance, a patch of grass that spends most of the day in the shade may have different watering needs than turf that is continuously exposed to direct sunlight. Similarly, a vegetable garden will require different nourishment than shrubs marking your property line. Overall, zoning allows your irrigation experts to design a perfect system that will keep your lawn, gardens, trees, and other vegetation growing healthy and strong.

Seasonal Operating Costs
The spring start-up checks the functioning of the system, looks for any damage that may have occurred over the winter, and tests for proper water flow. The fall closing winterizes your system by clearing water out of the system, shutting down machines, and ensuring that nothing becomes frozen or vulnerable to the cold Toronto winter weather.
Depending on your system, you may want more than just closing and opening, which is why we offer various maintenance programs to choose from that range from 2 to 12 visits per season.
