Lautner Irrigation, Inc. had its beginning in the home of Dan and LuAnne Lautner in 1972. For three years, we installed systems with products purchased from a local distributor but the area soon demanded a higher quality line of products. In 1975, we responded by becoming the area’s only Certified Dealer for Toro Sprinklers.
As growth continued, specialized personnel and equipment were added which covered every aspect of irrigation from professional design, installation and quality service.
Our Do-It-Yourself Irrigation Showroom opened on Front Street in Traverse City in 1983. The success and need for our store necessitated an expansion just two years later in 1985. The following year WaterCare Water Treatment Systems were added to round out the family of quality products sold, installed and serviced by Lautner Irrigation, Inc.
Today, after 40 years, Lautner Irrigation’s commitment to quality and professionalism has earned us national recognition. In 1994, we were featured in the Landscape & Irrigation Magazine. In 1998 we were named one of the Top 100 contractors east of the Mississippi River by the Irrigation Association, and then again in 1999. In addition, we have been awarded the Toro Residential and Commercial Contractor of the Year in 1982, 1991, 1993, 2003, 2004, and 2005.
