In 2002, hometown entrepreneurs Reed Libby and Ryan Muniz applied their love of landscaping and customer service to start Affordable Lawn Sprinklers and Lighting. Nineteen years and 8,000 customers later, Affordable Lawn Sprinklers and Lighting is the top-rated irrigation, artificial turf and lighting provider in the Washington, D.C. region.

Q: What has been the biggest change in irrigation and turf demands during your career?

A: Climate change! We live in a new climate today. Temperatures are extreme. Global warming means more moisture in the air and longer droughts combined with higher evaporation rates. We have become water management experts. We manage 5,000 sprinkler systems. This allows us to see everything. We no longer just add water, we manage the property through both drainage solutions and synthetic turf. 2021 has been a banner year for synthetic turf. People are tired of looking at muddy backyards.

Q: How do you employ new technology to help your clients?

A: As a company, we are always looking to improve. With lighting, clients want more control of their lighting and the ability to change colors and dim. In sprinklers, customers want to access their controller through their phones. Our system now leverages weather algorithms to adjust the yard’s watering schedule. In our water management division, customers are loving synthetic turf!

Q: What makes you different from other landscape-solution companies?

A: Our “secret sauce” is simple. We repeat the basics, and we do them well. We return calls. We show up as scheduled. We hyper-communicate.

Q: What’s an example of something in your professional life of which you’re proud?

A: Our employee satisfaction and longevity make us proud. Affordable’s tech team includes 1st-generation immigrants who have made long-term careers with us. We offer a 401K and health insurance. Our team is loyal and passionately invested in our customer service out in the field.
