Finding a reliable and skilled reticulation professional can be challenging. When you search for the best reticulation companies in Perth on Google, you’ll find a variety of options.

We consistently share pictures and videos showcasing transformations, and our clients actively comment and review our work.

As well as a strong focus on improving your lawn and garden’s health, our approach blends practicality with aesthetic appeal. No one wants sprinklers shooting sideways or random elements sticking up in the air. We ensure a neat and organized reticulation system, avoiding the common issue of misaligned and haphazardly arranged heads – without sacrificing practicality! We focus on putting pipes, wiring and solenoids in the right spots to minimize future maintenance and damage by concrete, tree roots etc. We always go the extra mile!

Reticulation is often underestimated as a trade, but we recognize its importance. Like any profession, the quality can vary. We invest the time needed to complete the job thoroughly, ensuring the right parts are used, and we refuse to cut corners. While some jobs may call for basic repairs in one section and a more complex overhaul in another, we are adaptable to our customers’ needs. If you want the job done right, we are the right company for you.

We Only Use The Best Quality Parts!

We source the majority of our parts from Reece Irrigation and Pools and sell these at retail prices. As a small business, we aim to keep our parts prices within 30% of Reece’s retail pricing, acknowledging potential fluctuations throughout the year. For any parts or products acquired elsewhere, we strive to maintain costs within 30% of the standard retail pricing for that company. Generally it’s 30% more. We believe in being upfront and our focus is on giving you the best job possible.

Having the right product hand-picked for you is a massive help and our decades of experience and love for the job are a huge help here and well worth the money it costs even if it is at retail.. After all, price is what you pay but value is what you get!

Why You SHOULDN’T Use Retic Renovation!

retic renovation

You are after a ‘competitive’ quote

In the words of a wise man, “Price is what you pay, value is what you get.” Have you ever paid for a cheap product or had a bad experience? Ever bought a product that broke shortly after or faced terrible customer service? It feels like a total waste of money, doesn’t it? The same principle applies to reticulation.

The job is for a rental or home that is being prepared for a ‘quick sale.

For standard rental properties or homes prepared for sale, where cost minimization is crucial, we might not be the ideal choice. Our focus on quality may result in higher costs. An exception exists for long-term rentals by owners seeking durability and quality with minimal hassle.

The project is less than 2 hours

We avoid stand-alone small repairs unless it’s for an existing client. This allows us to maintain our focus on renovations, repairs over 2 hours, and installations – ensuring each project receives the time and dedication it deserves.

Our Service Area

Why do we do a paid initial consult?

I pride myself on delivering tailored services to ensure you achieve optimal results. Therefore, it’s crucial for me to visit your location, assess the situation first-hand, and understand your specific requirements. While some may prefer to skip this step and jump straight to booking, experience has shown that this approach doesn’t always yield the best outcome for the customer.

Think of this initial meeting as more than just a typical quote; it’s an opportunity for me to provide you with a tailored estimation that assesses your needs properly AND gives you the right advice from the start! During our consultation, I’ll take the time to listen to your concerns, thoroughly inspect the area, conduct necessary tests such as controller assessments and pressure testing, and evaluate access and time requirements. Based on this assessment, I’ll then provide you with a written estimate. Often, I need additional time to give you an estimate especially if we spend the first hour looking over things so I will need to charge for further time. (Note I can’t estimate some aspects of reticulation for example finding a kink in a pipe or locating leaks) But I can give you an idea of the process. And If you like my business then it is the way to get me on board with helping you! Getting my 20 years of experience and advice on-site can be valuable.

There are several benefits to this approach. Firstly, it ensures that the job is not rushed, allowing me to plan and allocate the necessary resources for a successful outcome. Secondly, it enables me to offer on-site advice and address any issues promptly. Many times, I’ve been able to resolve pressure problems and other issues during the initial consultation, saving you time and money in the long run.

By investing the time upfront to understand your needs and provide estimations, I aim to deliver exceptional service and exceed your expectations. I know it is not the usual way of doing things, charging to ‘come and have a look’ but then again, we are not your ‘Usual Company’.

Our Process


Site Visit

During our initial consultation, I come to your home or business to assess the situation in person. This is crucial for tailoring our services to meet your specific needs.

What You Get:

  • Written Estimate: Provided if possible within the consultation duration.
  • On-Site Advice: Immediate insights based on direct assessment.
  • Project Understanding: Clarity on what needs doing and the time frame involved.

  • We can do advice-only consults as well! Book us in for an hour to pick our brains!
  • Cost: Typically, $330 for 60 minutes. This fee covers the consultation and basic evaluation. Note that larger properties or more complex jobs may incur additional charges.
  • Installations and Further Evaluations: $330 for an on-site consult, $220 per hour off-site to prepare estimations for larger jobs or full installs. Extended site visits for installations involve comprehensive pressure tests and discussions about the project, requiring more than the initial hour to develop a detailed proposal.
  • Consultation Scheduling: Consultations are usually on Fridays between 7 AM and 1 PM, and occasionally on Saturdays or other days. We value this time as it allows us to fully engage with your project without rushing, ensuring we understand every detail.
