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.

That Cold Weather is Coming….Are You Ready?

It’s been a warm October so far, but winter is on its way and it’s time to winterize your irrigation system.  It won’t be long before the temperatures will drop to 32 degrees, at least for a few hours. That’s when things start to freeze, and plastic and metal pipes start to expand and break.

How great is it when something you have been preaching to everyone actually comes back to you....  when someone finally gets it!
I have been telling people for several years now that if they use water efficient heads, an average homeowner can save 45,000 gallons of water annually. That’s the equivalent of flushing your toilet 63 times a day for a year or filling two average-sized swimming pools.

Water, Water Everywhere…

Water, water everywhere… …but is it costing more than it should?
If you’ve started up your sprinkler system, you want to make sure you don’t have any bad heads, that your spray heads are spraying the way they’re supposed to, and that all the parts are doing what they should. If you have some bad heads, you want to replace those. You need to make sure the heads aren’t leaking, that the rotors are turning properly, and that they are adjusted correctly. There’s not much point in spraying your driveway or your house.

As soon as the grass starts to turn green – and sometimes even before it’s green – customers start calling to find out if they should or shouldn’t start up their sprinkler systems. As the temperatures start to get warmer, the grass is going to come up and it’s going to turn green. But it’s also going to rain more this spring.
