H2O Sprinkler Co. able to handle all your lawn care needs

By Alannah Allbrett

   After high school, Larry Turcott went on the road in a camper doing construction work – bringing his family with him. When their son was old enough to start school, however, he and his wife, Nicole, wanted to be home – home being Orofino, where he was born and raised.

   In the spring of 2009, Larry started a new business in Orofino called, H2O Sprinkler Co. He had been helping a friend install a sprinkler system, and people kept asking him for estimates. ”Nobody else was doing it, and there seemed to be a need,” he said, so he spent a whole winter getting a business license, a contractor’s license, and obtaining the needed equipment for his own business.

   The work varies with the seasons, and in the warm months he takes on two to three full time employees. Larry enjoys staying busy, setting his own hours, and “getting to work with everybody in the community” whom he said has been very supportive.

   Doing this kind of work is not new to Larry; after his dad Jeff got hurt in a logging accident; his dad ran Jeff’s lawn Care for about 12 years. Larry helped his father while he was growing up. And now his dad works to help him succeed in his own business.

   Larry’s family has grown too, and he and Nicole now have son, Brayden 7, a daughter Kamryn 5, and are expecting a new baby boy.

   Some of the work Larry is able to do for his customers include: all landscaping projects, including sod installation, sprinkler systems, retaining walls, decorative walls, and paver work            In the fall, Larry does blowouts of sprinkler systems to winterize them, and in the winter he does snow removal. Larry has an impressive portfolio of pictures of his finished projects.

   Now is the time to start getting ready to check your sprinkler system.
