Craig Penner, Owner, City Rain.

City Rain began as the restructuring of Craig Penner’s landscape business in 1979. Craig decided to wear one hat and focus solely on irrigation. Based in the Madison Valley of Seattle we serve customers in most areas of King County. Our niche is residential service work. Our company is small and we take a personal approach to each property with an eye for detail and maximum water efficiency. Combined, our staff has over 70 years of experience solving the trickiest problems in the field. City Rain is a member in good standing of the Irrigation Association
