we have a lot of shallow tree roots. Last year I used a edger to cut the grass and make a small ditch. Then I used a narrow pick and irrigtion shovel. We plan to demo this thing but it looks like the ticket.

The big companies doen't do installs on old lawns. On new stuff they lay the drip and them put the sod squares on top of it.

Can't you run the line in a Galvanized Pipe to push it under the ground?? I am not explaining that real well but it works great.
