            Today we  offer sprinkler system services of all kinds; new construction design to installs,  repair Services all types, including pumps and pump house refitting. I am an expert at "broken wire locates" if you are in need? We service Chelan and Douglas.

  I found passion for the Water industry in 1983 working for David Burnett and "Cascade Irrigation". He was a wonderful mentor and  helped me establish Blackcliff Farms Landscape Contruction Co. in 1989.

            Over the years I began to realize most people  need help when it comes to repairing their Irrigation Systems.

We are here to help with all your irrigation issues. Whether a small residence or a large campus, we can help. Just give us a try. We always offer free estimates and are available 24/7 during the irrigating season for emergencies.


            I started out in the irrigation industry in 1983 in North Central Washington. I learned very early on that "not all irrigation systems are the same". In 1989 I formed Blackcliff Farms in Palisades, Washington. We designed and installed hundreds of irrigation systems, from small drip systems to large scale commercial systems. Designed and installed residential sub-division's irrigation complete systems from mainline to lot connections. I have always used conservative figures to determine use at "build out" of these developments. This insures the integrity of the system as the project unfolds and is complete. 

           Over the years the experience I have gained as a General Contractor in North Central Washington for 20 years and Facilities and Grounds manager for some of Washington's finest Resorts; The Freestone Inn,  Mazama, Washington. The Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort and The Cave B Inn in George, Washington. Each one of these complicated properties all had very extensive irrigating systems along with many pumping stations.

           In 2014 David Earhart (Earhart Sprinkler Systems Inc.) and I started working together. In 2017 David decided to retire after 36 years in business. His customers have been the most wonderful people anyone would ever meet. God Bless David and Marcia for your support! Have fun rock hounding and spending time on the Oregon Coast.
