Whats going on here? I gotta a bid going out for all sprays, but yet the specs for the plants are all 18" or higher. WTF

Sprays under the plants water the roots. There is your million dollar knowledge for the day.

NEW YORK (CNN) -- A pedestrian was struck twice by vehicles in Queens and dragged for 17 miles by the second vehicle before police found him dead in Brooklyn, New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters Wednesday.
Surveillance video shows a body in the middle of the street.

The badly mangled body was discovered under a van after several passing motorists motioned the driver to pull over, Kelly said. Police had not identified the victim Wednesday evening, he said.

The first driver called 911 to report he thought he had struck a pedestrian but did not see anyone.

It turned out the second driver, in a van, had driven over the man, whose body became lodged under its chassis, according to police.

Kelly said the van driver stopped at one point during the drive on New York City's highways and roads because he noticed the vehicle was not driving properly. But he failed to find anything unusual, Kelly said.

Police are retracing the route the van drove in an attempt to find body parts, he said.

No charges have been filed, Kelly told reporters Wednesday afternoon

Ok. How effective is it overall. I say rotor it from the outside of the bed edges. Almost the same price. Let me know. Thanks

It depends on the plant type and foliage.

a spray system in a tightly compact plant area have to be close together with small nozzles for proper distribution

if the foliage is low such as hedge lines I would go for a pgs / pgp- high pop system.

If it's more yearly hydrangea's I would go with pop ups. Either way you probably have shallow roots from the exisiting plants and trenching will be a B*tch

Plantings will be established after two years. No "thirsty plants" being planted. Idea around here is to plant native/drought tolerant plants. My idea, is what I think to be a year round, time after time, type of system. No need to move or add. What do you think?

Who was the designer? Was the designer paid to do the design? Is there more than one way to properly irrigate something (the answer is more than likely yes). It was the designers choice. Bid it, or walk away.

if your bid is around the same price it is your choice. there is no standardized way of doing it. I like to factor in as much as I can.
so I guess it depends on what you like

For love of not getting irrigation on the leafs surface which will become wasted water do to evaporation, not to mention the possibility of fungus inoculation....

screw what you like, do what is best for the plants and the water bill.

i know alot of irrigators that "do what they like" and half of it is illegal practice.

water on leaves is bad (most of the time, unless scientifically done to cool down the leaf surface and reduce the transpiration rate through to stomatas) but i doubt many ppl here know what that is:) (besides Kiril and Peter)

Anyone care to postulate how it can potentially reduce transpiration?

Gee, I guess I screwed up years ago using sprays and rotors causing no evaporation because I figured the watering window or any mildew or other plant diseases because I knew the correct application. Just got to know how and when to do it, Bucko. Drip is fine for narrow areas and tree rings, otherwise, :hammerhead:

Water waster ... disease promoter. :hammerhead:

Curious, how would you go about finding an "appropriate window" in a climate that receives no rain during the months when irrigation is required?

You got to do the off topic forum and calendar girl stuff to get these guys attention! If you can't post 3-400/month in meaningless drivel, they refuse to take the 40-50 real posts anyone makes a month as serious.

Start posting pictues of every golf ball that is driven off the #1 tee, that will get you up there.

Seems like others do just about the same. Not to name any names.
