What Sets Us Apart

While participating in the metro area’s home & garden shows, we get the chance to talk to many homeowners. And, as most do this time of year; many homeowners have spring fever!

We spoke about the benefits of having a sprinkler system. We also talked to plenty of folks that have systems, but want to upgrade or make repairs to their sprinklers. One question people really what to know is, “What makes you different from all the other sprinkler companies?” Our customers choose us for many various reasons, but here’s what we think sets us apart from the other irrigation contractors in town.

We install the sprinkler system that best fits your needs.
We custom design your sprinkler system based on your yard, which means we take into account your trees and landscaping and still ensure that you have head-to-head coverage. We also make sure we’re not wasting water by watering your sidewalks or your house.

We offer three different installation packages so you can choose the one that best fits your needs and budget. All three packages have the same great design but we give you options on which components we install. You can choose to include energy-saving features such as a weather station and efficient watering heads or just the basics, but either way, it’s designed for YOUR yard and YOUR landscaping.

Nature’s Helper is Omaha’s Water-Efficiency Experts! We are dedicated to do our part to help conserve and protect our water resources. Nature’s Helper owner Howard Kucera, is one of only a few select contractors in the entire state of Nebraska that has partnered with the EPA’s WaterSense program. That means we offer our customers the latest technology and innovative products to help conserve water and save money on energy bills.

You can count on us to honor our 5-year warranty and provide service after the sale. We’ve been in business almost 14 years and we’ll be around for many more years to come. A warranty doesn’t do you any good if the company isn’t around to honor what it promised.

Our service technicians are friendly, professional and well-trained. And all of our staff is customer-focused to ensure you have a positive experience throughout the entire installation process and life of your sprinkler system.

We’re proud that for the third year in a row, we have been voted among the Best of Omaha in the Irrigation category. So give us a call and find out what the voters in Omaha already know.

Spring fever is in full bloom

The first few warm days give everyone spring fever. We’re starting to see the first signs of true spring — a robin here or there, some flowers starting to poke through. The first flowers to come up will be the crocus, then the daffodils and then three waves of tulips.

Our Customers are the Best of Omaha

Because of you, our customers, Nature’s Helper has again been named the Best of Omaha 2011 in our business category. Thank you to each of you who voted for us —  this means more to us than you can imagine.

Receiving this award gives us the confidence that our customers know we’re doing a professional job that meets your needs. You’ve shown us what kind of company we really are.

Thank you again for your vote of confidence. We look forward to continuing to earn your confidence and your business.

Get Ready to Throw Down…Some Seed

What a year this has been. From a harsh winter to a wet spring and a hot summer, your yard has taken a beating. But you can have a healthier lawn next spring if you do a little work right now.

Don’t Panic, Spring is Coming

Everyone’s yards look terrible right now. After a harsh winter, with months and months of snow packed onto our yards, the grass looks awful. And in fact, the top layer of most yards right now is dead grass. But that’s just what’s on the top.

We know It’s Coming, Maybe Sooner than We Think

That’s right, we all know the first hard freeze of the season is coming. We don’t know when, but with the cooler than usual weather throughout the summer, we suspect we might have an early freeze this year.

The good news is that we’ve also had lots of rain this summer, so the ground still has plenty of moisture to support late-blooming gardens, trees and, of course, the grass. The better news is that you can safely winterize your sprinkler system earlier than normal this year. Our equipment is prepped, and we’re ready to schedule appointments for winterization.

Are those Mushrooms Invading My Lawn?

It’s in the soil. It grows from old tree or bush roots. It shows up when conditions include high temperatures combined with high humidity. Fungus is a fact of life.

Baby, It’s Hot Outside…

Even though Omaha has had a lot of rain recently, that moisture will be gone in just a few days with temperatures in the upper 90s. Now is the time to keep your lawn watered properly. Maintain your regular schedule, but if you see that your grass is starting to go dormant or the ground is getting dried out, add in a manual cycle. The easiest way to do that is to turn it on before you go to bed at night. Here’s how to tell if your grass is going dormant: If your grass is turning from a shiny green to a pale green, it is starting to get stressed.
