KC Irrigation was started in 2010 in the low point of the economic recession. During this period KC Irrigation learned the best and most efficient ways to operate as a company. Through hard work, dedication and customer satisfaction, KC Irrigation survived and has grown to be one of the largest and most respected irrigation companies in the Kansas City area. Our projects range from small additions to very large commercial installations.

We are a full-service irrigation company which includes servicing your existing system with Spring start-ups, repairs and winterizations as necessary.

In any project, we focus primarily on customer service. No project or service is complete until 100% satisfaction is obtained by our customer.

With KC Irrigation’s senior staff all being trained and developed in the Golf Course Maintenance industry, you can feel comfortable knowing we can help develop the best plan for your landscape’s needs.
