Our Roots....Your Choice.
“I have always enjoyed working outside. During my college years I worked summer jobs in the Landscape Industry. In 1985, I started installing irrigation systems and the mechanical nature of the work was a great fit for me, as I enjoyed building things by hand! After graduating from College, I became Service Manager. I soon found myself repairing the systems that I had helped install over the past two summers. I quickly learned the company I was working for was doing it all wrong! Shallow pipe, faulty electrical connections, and poor overall workmanship resulted in broken systems after only one working season. Customer service was even worse! No communication, care or concern. Clients were angry, and I heard it! With a group of fellow employees equally unsatisfied with our company’s lack of service and ethics, we started our own company in 1987. We pledged to give our customers a quality product, backed with a solid warranty and great customer service. We put those promises into practice and our company flourished. As my partners moved on, I started Creative Irrigation & Lighting in 1990 with customers from the first company. I had learned how to install a sprinkler system, how NOT to treat customers and how NOT to manage small company finances. Creative Irrigation & Lighting, with a humble start of 75 clients, now numbers in the thousands. Most of the 75 customers I began with over 20 years ago are still with us! “Our Service Keeps Us in Business” is a motto that I am very proud of.”
