The summer months are perfect for enjoying your yard and your garden. But of course, that green space needs to be maintained and cared for. A green lawn and healthy plants require regular watering, which can be a time-consuming chore. Chris Sumner, installation technician and sales rep for Rainforest Sprinklers & Lighting, wants you to consider an automatic watering system.

“The number one advantage is the convenience,” he says, speaking roadside by telephone during one of his many busy days in the Sarnia area. “You can essentially set it and forget it.” Rainforest are in the business of providing clients with fully automated irrigation systems and outdoor lighting solutions, taking the worry out of maintaining a beautiful yard.

Both commercial and residential properties can benefit from an automatic sprinkler system, on a large or small scale. Typically, you might imagine this sort of set-up on a golf course or sprawling estate, but Sumner is keen on the power of a tailor-made system that can work for anyone’s needs. “Your lawn, for example, needs to be watered differently than your hanging baskets,” he explains, “and we can make sure the spray heads are optimized to do that.”

Aside from saving you the physical work, an automated system also conserves water – the spray can be fine-tuned unlike standard sprinkler heads, in order to avoid wasting water over concrete areas or the side of your house. Rainforest will even update and refine existing systems for you.

Outdoor lighting plays a pivotal role in getting the most out of your lawn, as well. “We’re basically interested in setting the mood that you want in your yard,” Sumner says. Whether lining your driveway with adequate illumination, or installing a modest glow along your yard’s fence, Rainforest will work with you to get the results you seek.

If you are interested in giving your residence or business a customized, efficient watering or lighting system, give Rainforest a call at 519-337-1855, or visit and send Chris an email. He makes a point of personally visiting at your convenience, typically within a couple of days, to walk through your needs and begin the design process. In about two weeks, you can expect Rainforest’s team to install the system, leaving your yard with minimal scarring that typically disappears a week later. And Sumner stands by their work – “I don’t leave until you’re happy,” he says.

You have probably seen their distinctive vehicles around town, sporting their tree frog mascot – Rainforest offers coverage to most of southwestern Ontario, with the Sarnia office able to help customers from Wallaceburg to Grand Bend and Goderich. Their technicians have 25 years of experience in the Sarnia area, and their design and installation process will leave you with a beautiful lawn and one less chore to worry about.

For those who are still on the fence, Sumner underscores his favourite advantage to customers. “If you want to keep having to drag your hose across your lawn,” he says, “you can. But if you want to simply enjoy your yard with family and friends, then give us a call and we’ll make that happen.”
