Irrigation Services in Columbia, Illinois


Welcome to Hancock Irrigation, a proud provider of commercial and residential irrigation services in Columbia, Illinois as well as surrounding areas in the St. Louis Metro East.

Our company offers comprehensive solutions to a variety of irrigation needs, including winterization, spring maintenance, drip irrigation, sprinkler system repair and full irrigation systems installation just to name a few.

There’s something very special about irrigation as compared to other services. That’s because if it’s not done right – the result becomes apparent almost immediately. Lawn goes yellow, flowers wilt, and what should have been a blooming garden looks like it desperately needs a hug.

Our growing list of happy clients and a reputation for care and professionalism are there to testify that we are really good at what we do. The irrigation systems we install operate with clockwork precision and are always kept in their top condition by a dedicated crew of specialists.

Combining Tradition and Innovation

Our irrigation services in Columbia, Illinois, rely on good, old irrigation methods, while also introducing hi-tech, water-efficient machinery to better take care of your garden or back yard. This becomes very important in the hotter months of the year, where excess water usage will amount to pretty hefty bills. Saving money by installing a smart, timer-controlled sprinkler or drip irrigation system simply makes sense.

In addition to this, we have innovative insect misting systems available that will rid you from the necessity of bringing bug spray with you every time you go outside, or putting fly traps everywhere. Let’s face it, those things don’t look good and don’t really work that well either. Flies, mosquitoes, wasps – all those unpleasant, unwelcome guests will be gone from your life, allowing you to host parties or just enjoy the weather in peace.

This is in fact our primary objective – your peace of mind. And we are happy to say we have gotten very good at providing just that to our valued customers over the years.

Transparent Pricing and Billing

When we sign a contract, you get a full breakdown of what’s included and what the rate is for everything. There are never any hidden fees, no surprise costs, or anything of the sort. You get what you ordered, when you ordered it, not a moment later.

We serve residential and commercial clients, including schools, office buildings and other businesses. Whether you need to install an efficient sprinkler system in your back yard, or require our services for a company or business, we are here to provide it.

Every one of our customers without exception enjoys the same royal treatment, and gets to enjoy the same end result.

    A Class Act! I could easily tell by the initial professional approach of Hancock Irrigation Systems, all aspects of the job-in-hand would be well covered. This company showed skills and abilities beyond the norm. The amount of detail oriented attention and awareness of home owners property was refreshing to see. Thorough follow ups are also performed - Absolutely no need for personal reminders or date books. . . As a friendly hint to all in the market for irrigation systems - If you accept the "Fly By Night" crews trying to make a quick buck and save you money initially - You surely will regret the consequences. Do yourself a favor and have it done right by the Hancock Crew.  My hat's off to this company . . .

    This company installed a full lawn sprinkler system:  Hancock Irrigation was outstanding.  Excellent product, installation time, instruction, and customer service. This was my second experience with Mr. Hancock and he validated why I chose to go back to him.  I am thoroughly satisfied with this experience, again!

    They installed an irrigation system in out backyard.  There was some coordination with sod company and everything went smooth.  Todd always answers my phone calls and texts and I have never had an issue that he can't address.  He's no only professional but friendly and trustworthy.  Everything went better than expected.

    Todd Hancock who owns and runs Hancock Irrigation used to work for the landscape company that I used for landscape type work. So when he branched out with his own irrigation business, I followed him. He installed the system and if I have problems, a lot of times he comes out and looks at it without additional charge. If it is something pretty minor, he just comes and does it which I respect because he installed the system. So when there is a problem with the equipment, most of the time he comes out and takes care of it without an additional charge. Sometimes if there is part or something, he has to charge me for the part, but he is good about backing up his work. His price seems very reasonable to me.

    I chose Hancock Irrigation because of his customer service. Todd had challenges to face with invisible fence but still had amazing service during the install. I will recommend them to anyone looking for irrigation service.
  • Installed new system at our summer house. Unbelievable service from all phases of installation to start up and shut down. This was my third system in three different states for for once I have had no problems! I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a quality service after the install.

    I recently had an irrigation system put in by Hancock and the experience was above fantastic! Todd came out to give me a great bid and scheduled the work. They called me the week before work was to be done, they showed up when they were supposed to and completed the job on time. Due to a fence being installed right after their installation Todd made 3 extra trips out to make sure fence guys knew were his lines were put. Yes disaster happened! The fence guys cut the main irrigation line installing the fence post. Todd came out with his crew to repair the broken line so the fence guys could finish. I can’t tell how happy I am in the entire process. I used other companies before and NEVER experienced the service Todd and his team has shown me. If you want a great system from a fantastic company call Todd Hancock!

    Thanks for getting that done yesterday. I meant to say something but we were running late for the track meet. I was very impressed with how clean and neat your trailer and equipment were and I think it speaks to the kind of job you will do. I also sent a response to the invoice about moving the two heads in the front.

  • Thank you for an excellent job this morning. It has been a frustrating two weeks with the backyard project. Despite good work on the wall, the contractor has dealt us fits on all the side issues. I was quite surprised and relieved by your responsiveness in both coming out and in completing the work...and arrival was five minutes early both times. We really needed a victory on something this week and you gave it to us. The irrigation system is now in the best shape it has been since install. My wife and I have dealt with a lot of contractors over the years. Many are wonderful, many we will never call again. You have won our business in the future based on this week. Thanks again to you and your entire team.
