I'm not talking about even 1/2" away, I'm talking about physically touching the cement.
If the customer hires a lawn company that edges, they will break heads, call out for you $$$
If the city replaces and parts of sidewalk, replacement heads, call out for you $$$.
Cheaper to install, $$$ for you.

Ok sarcasm off, why do some people install heads against cement, instead of giving some clearance?

I don't do any irrigation and can tell you that is dumb. Most companies around here install them touching the sidewalk or curb. Then they charge the cust. to replace them when they tear them up edging. Its crazy.....

It's a form of planned obsolescence; once the HO figures out they are getting screwed, the irrigation co. is obsolete.

I kept heads 4 fingers away from sidewalk. Literally put my hand on the ground and cut accordingly.
