    Be happy a homeowner is trying to get some helpful advice instead of just blaming the installer. I would like few customers like this.

    I was not cracking on your guy in particular, except for the crooked tree comment :), but rather agreeing with the fellow that said - it is a rare thing to find a proper install at a reasonale price.
    But I am glad that you brought 1 more point to the fore. Sprinkling with irrigation is not going to save your bushes, especially on the hill. Soak the darn things at install then again the next day then once or twice a week thereafter depending on the heat. Simple and no more problem. Watch for air bubbles and have enough of a dish around the base for a nice puddle b4 you shut the hose off.
    People who have shrubs and grass on the same sprinkling zones are NOT professional grade irrigation folk.

    wait till spring and post more pics of them, you will get answers. trees, shrubs, cutting grass, and fertilizing shouldn't be done once the temp. is over 85degrees but then again this isn't a perfect world.

    Most of us have made more money in the last 8 years then we ever had. Why change and take a chance?
