Thanks 93Chevy. We still have to see if the catcher is going to work. I feel strongly that it will. Its funny we are thinking of making our own walkbehind mower. A 32 or 36 inch.

I've been looking at your thread for a couple days. You guys do nice work. I'm a newby, part time, small (really small), basically grass cutter for now. I want to install a sprinkler system at my own house, but when I saw those pics of valves I now know there is some more research that needs to be done on my end. I can't see paying $3,000 on irrigation when I could use that money to buy some better equipment. I look forward to seeing updates.

Yeah, It cost money to install a nice sprinkler system. Even if you are doing it yourself for yourself. Are you buying your home or do you own your home. I would only install a sprinkler system if I was buying my house or own it. Right? Believe it or not we didn't know jack when we first started fooling around with sprinkler systems. Its all about learning on your own. At least that's how we did it. But don't get it twisted, I've put in my hours of reading and studying on flow control, psi, back flow prevention, designing, and a lot of other stuff. We were lucky enough to get to install a couple of system and use them as practice for some friends and family. At no charge for labor just the material and they were very good practice for us. I'll tell you your house would be a great practice for you.

Here are a few pics of the landscape job we have been working on. Went out today and finished up some final wiring of the valves to the controller.

Dang jefe, I bet your guys didn't like planting all those flores. It's a p.i.t.a doing that many but it pays good $$$. It all looks great man!

Yeah, you can say that again snapperman! We've had this account now for about 4 years now and we replace those flowers twice a year. But every year we seem to get faster at it. And its worth it. Money wise and how it looks.
