Good to know, I'll have to look into it. I'd much rather have a dump from seat. I used a Hustler with one and loved it.

Can anyone PM me a "role of thumb" to irrigation installations on new homes? We are in the process of putting together a budget for a new home owner for there landscape. 90% of our work is hardscapes so I really never deal with this.

For example, low voltage lighting we can get $125-$150 per light, with a $500 minimum. Is there anything like this for irrigation?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think its that bad. Just stay away from sugar and carbs. If you know someone who sells shaklee, performance is amazing. This is nothing like last summer. Personally powerade and gatorade is miserable in this heat.

Does anyone know of anyone who is looking for a part time job mowing this fall? I am going back to school at the end of august and picked up too many lawn this year to go back and forth. 48 lawns takes 14 hours with two people and around 25 with one. I would pay for the right people. If someone knows of someone let me know.
