It's kind of the way it is with the entire Green Industry, though, isn't it? Is this a problem that's unique to the Sages of Outdoor Lighting? As you said, we see this all the time with irrigation. I also see it all the time with hardscapes. Plenty of fools out there installing crappy patios and walls that fall apart after a few years. Same thing with landscape installations too. And same thing for the lawn care side of things too. In fact, it's the same thing in general construction as well.
There are always Yahoos out there who do janky work for the rest of us to fix or redo. But that's one of the things I've always liked about Lawnsite - is that we have the opportunity to help change that here. An opportunity to share our expertise and professionalism and help raise the bar for others reading.
