About

For over 30 years we’ve been installing, maintaining, and repairing automatic lawn sprinklers for homeowners and small commercial sites. We’ve proudly been serving the Richmond, VA area for the past 20 years, and were one of the first to offer landscape lighting in Richmond over 15 years ago. We put our customers first in everything we do, and take great pride in our ability to deliver fast, reliable service.

S&J Irrigation is your one-stop shop for all your irrigation and landscape lighting needs, including installation, spring turn-ons and fall shut downs, diagnostics and repair, and maintenance agreements. We only use the highest quality tools and parts and believe a proactive approach to service helps to reduce the downtime of your sprinkler and lighting systems. We’re a state-licensed contractor and fully insured.

We are passionate about our work and keep up with the latest trends in the both the irrigation and lighting industries.

Want to control your sprinklers with your computer, or set the timing on your lighting system with your smartphone? Ask us how.

Interested in installing a rain switch to turn your sprinklers off when it rains, or using new low volume/low pressure sprinkler heads to conserve water? We can help.

Want to improve the curb appeal of your home with landscape lighting? Want to convert your older halogen bulbs to new LED bulbs to save money and add more fixtures without running more wiring? We can do that, too.

We’re firm believers in water conservation. We work closely with each of our customers to achieve maximum water savings. While serving as the president of the Virginia Irrigation Association during the 1999-2001 drought, I personally served on the governor’s water task force to make plans on how to best reduce the risk of future water shortages.

My wife, a teacher in Hanover County, our two sons, our dogs and I have lived in Mechanicsville since 1991. For fun, and a great workout, I play competitive paintball. My team – East Coast Impulse – competes in the “old folk’s league,” over 40 in the EPL (Eastern Paintball League). Our home field and one of our great sponsors is KPS Paintball in Midlothian. This is a great sport that helps me stay in shape and keeps me focused. We’re always looking for more players, so feel free to reach out if you’re interested.

We’d love the opportunity to help you with your irrigation and landscape lighting needs. Please contact me if we can help in any way.
