Check my price if you would be so kind...

I have 1.5 acres of mostly turf to fully irrigate with lake water.

I will be using a 2 hp pump that supplies 30gpm in the front yard.

Included are the following:
-pump install ($900 material cost)
-13 PGP rotars
-11 Pro Spray
-46 I-20 rotars
-700' drip line; emitters every 12''
-1960' 1.5'' class 200 pvc
-900' 1'' class 200 pvc
-2500' 14 gague wire
-10 1.5'' hunter valves
-pro c controller and rain sensor
-even water distribution--head to head coverage the entire property
-grading, valued at $600
-Bore under driveway 3 or 4 times

My price = $12,500

I'll have $8000 in it including my overhead.

Too high or too low?? 70 heads, grading, and 700' drip line.

Why would you need 3 or 4 bores under the driveway? Hire somebody to pull a 4" or 6" sleeve and only do it once.

I decided to loop the main line, and because of the slope I have zones designed by elevation across the property instead of covering each area all at once. Also, the driveway is a horse shoe to the street (2 entrances). It'll cost me a $50 in the rental to bore myself...I don't know if I would be willing to justify spending more than that to have it done--what is the cost for a bore that large?

trenching. Also doing rough grading before and seed, fine grade once installed, then silt seed and straw when done.... Total price is actually $14800 to irrigate, plant shrubs, grade, and seed.

why not a two wire system... If this place has traffic, I'd use SCD 40. CL class is thin walled.

I'd want SCD 40 or SCD 80 sleeves under the hard surfaces to run your CL class pipe through, or even SCD 40... One or two trucks & truck and you'll be renting a concrete cutter. Like someone suggested, bore a bigger hole and run all your pipe through. Your going to have to back-fill that hole properly or the hard surface will eventually crack or sink.

I don't know what your material costs are, but 50% + mark up sounds high. I get $700.00 for a simple 2hp pump installation, including the pump & pump start relay.

How far from the source are you? You might actually save some money & time renting a bobcat with a small trenching attachment. It's also an opportunity to learn where all the utilities are buried.

1.5 acre loop, I'd use a #12 single strand wire. #14 is good for about 1000' (my observation)

Anyway, I'm in Florida what do I know?
