For a turn-key system.

Just so I wont win the unquestionable idiot of the month award for the 44th month in a row....

20k sqft

butt load of trees

with quality as good as Mr. Leary's, kiril's, jims, boots, AI, and all you others...

ball park price in california? for a parts and installation, turn-key job?


P.S. and then, if I could push my luck by requesting a second freebie...
suppose a second example was only 2500 feet?

3/4", 1", 1 1/2", 2" tap? Pressure and volume at tap? New lawn or existing? watering just the turf? or watering the butt load of trees separately with drip or something else? calsense type controller? or more conventional type?

There are too many variables, and not many places I've seen for a "turn key system".

as many zones as necessary, to properly irrigate the lawn in the best way possible.

but thats difficult to say, because
Im not doing this install, this is all theorectical, im trying to learn pricing, so that i quit telling people 5k for example , for what i am beginning to think is more properly 20k.

with stainless steel 5004 plus prs sam (rainbird owns the rotor world now, i dont care how cheap they are at Dollar General) The 5004 PRS is a cadillac up against ALL Iv seen. Which, today, isnt much I can promise you. )

double check and all the code related gadgets , excluding turf drip in narrows. Yes.

plus any other suggestions that could be sincerely suggested by the only "beat-around-the-bush-until-its-frustrating-old FARTS-that-i-oddly-trust"

getting a roundabout price for a sprinkler system installation including parts, must be the hardest thing for a person to possibly accomplish.

but just before i go crazy, some day! i'll first call the competition and waste their time for a bid on an install I dont really intend to purchase.

F competitive pricing objectives, I only want to install the BEST! period, if that cost me and customers both extra, even extra money, so be it.

______________
so lets say about 12 zones with about 80 rotors and sprays

matter of fact, I actually have done a 20k 12 zone with ~80 heads,

didnt make a nickle
