This is a line from the FX newsletter just arrived in my inbox, referring to the mistake of placing fixtures in lawns...

Regardless of brand, fixtures prefer not to be mowed, fertilized or watered.

Here you go. This was pulled out of a job just the other day. The job was about 25 miles from the coast in a warm climate here in San Diego.

Hope your FX rusted photo doesn't get deleted just like mine was. Perhaps the moderator uses F/X?
