    For the last few years i have been doing hundreds of aerations in my area and have always placed flags by the sprinklers of my customers lawns, of course this is very time consuming and i waste alot of time marking them do many of you do the same thing or just not worry about the marking?

    I provide the flags for the customer, they have to mark any and all obstacles.

    We do the same...either the customer or the sprinkler people have to mark the heads. We're not responsible for them unless they were marked and we accidently damage one.

    That is how I do it also. 5 seasons of aerating with cam driven aerators, I haven't broke one yet.

    We have the customer or irrig. company mark heads. I talked to an irrigation contractor last fall who fixes all heads broken by the local TG/CL branch. They don't bother to mark heads, just wing it and if customer calls, they send this guy over for repairs. He say's he goes non stop thru spring and fall fixing their damage. He loves it, and so do I as those pissed off customers end up calling me!! :cool2:
