About Us

Our Philosophy

Green Raven Services is an irrigation and lighting company committed to your property’s beauty and well-being. We install and service highly efficient irrigation systems and monitor the systems throughout the growing season. We can also evaluate and service your existing system.

Most systems fail the plants and turf because of either overwatering or underwatering. Our specialty is setting your system’s schedule to provide the optimum result, a healthy and lush landscape.  

At Green Raven Services we consider ourselves to be stewards of the land and play an active role in helping your property to flourish. We evaluate, assess and oversee all aspects of proper land irrigation and take immense pride in the services that we provide for our clients. For over 25 years, Green Raven irrigation and outdoor lighting specialists have been serving the needs of New York and Connecticut residents.

Bob Byrnes has been in the irrigation and landscape industry his entire career. Beginning in Southern California in the mid 1980s, Bob learned how to design and install systems that would adequately water a landscape while being tested in extreme drought conditions.

After moving to the Northeast, Bob has spent the last 30 years working in the irrigation industry, focusing mainly on residential properties, but also on commercial and agricultural projects. Through his experiences he realized the importance of understanding plants and overall plant/turf care especially as it relates to water management. He studied Plant Health Care and completed courses at UMASS and Cornell extension programs. He also worked for a design/build firm in Fairfield County, CT, managing the irrigation segment of their business for close to a decade.

Bob is a Certified Irrigation Auditor. His passion is the environment, his expertise is water conservation.

Bob has also designed and consulted on many landscape lighting projects throughout the northeast. Lighting has always been a service Bob has offered to his satisfied clients, and his expert guidance has resulted in hundreds of installations.
