I have been a client of Laurdane Associates for more than 20 years. Ethan Shapiro, the proprietor, began working with me on small-scale projects as they occurred in my yard, including previously installed irrigation, pond and lighting issues. He is a patient and persistent professional who has always listened carefully to what I have said and offered advice without insistence – which is precisely the kind of personality that I needed in times of stressful situations. He is always willing to innovate and to try the most efficient and cost-effective solutions to a problem instead of immediately going to the most expensive and elaborate intervention. Ethan has arrived within hours of my requests and has trudged through all kinds of weather to arrive at my home; he notifies me when he intends to be on the property for routine maintenance and is always respectful of the land. He is well-informed because he researches solutions before recommending them. Over the years, I have learned to trust and rely on his judgment about how to fix most problems. I endorse Laurdane Associates with enthusiasm for comprehensive irrigation and lighting solutions.
Your expertise is greatly appreciated. The exterior lighting is soft and enhances the house. It’s obvious to me now that looking at the house across the street, I’m looking at bright landscape lights versus the house.
I first found Ethan after the person I’d found to put in an irrigation system at my home badly botched the job. Ethan came in and fixed the system at a really reasonable price. After we moved, though, we switched to the irrigation company that our contractor had hired to install the irrigation system. I soon realized the service was far below Ethan’s: the prices were higher, and the work was performed by folks who just wanted to check our house off their list. I switched back to Ethan for his responsible service, pride in getting the job done right, and always-fair prices. We couldn’t be happier.
I highly recommend Laurdane Associates for irrigation system service. Ethan is responsive, dependable and extremely knowledgeable. He diagnosed the problems quickly, thoroughly quoted and explained the job, and then executed at the fair price quoted. I have had our system serviced by several other companies, and Laurdane is the best.

I was really delighted to see there was no lake out there. That was quite a lot of rainfall. Kudos to you!
