We are putting drip into eight flower beds.....had to locate water line first then dig. One of the valves will be 100ft from bed and will have to be hand dug.

Thanks. That soil was very very soft. The trencher ripped through it fast. There was though about 100 feet of trenching we had to do by hand due to the trencher not being able to fit in certain areas. But although it was done by hand it was easy. From all the installs we have done I can say we have run into hard pan only once. The trencher was just bouncing.

Had some crazy windy weather here last week. This huge tree was blown over next to one of our residential accounts.

With our maintenance route keeping us busy as usual. And the extra install jobs that have been coming our way. We really haven't had time to work and finish the last to do's on our super lawn truck. We finally put some time towards it and worked on the custom air bag system we are designing for it. Here are a few pics of the work.
