more pics of our commerical work. this is the before pic.
the turf came in nicely in 2 weeks.
Can I be a little critical without offending you.
The tree should have been incorporated in bed that is in front of it. with seperate irrigation ( micro or xeriscape ). other than that its still is a good job though.
we did not install landscape. we just provided irrigation system design and install. bushes by building have drip irrigation. tree is irrigated by lawn heads. i know the tree should not recieve water from rotors, but, what can i do? on commerical work, the numbers are reeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaallll tight. that was all they were looking for. it works good.
xeriscaping is not very big over here. clients who have irrigation systems do not worry about the water bill or water situation. which can be good or bad, depending on how you look at it.
no offense taken. speak your mind...
In that case...
Why is there not double coverage in the forefront of the picture around the 1/4 circle planter and nothing in the middle going back to the perimeter?
Double coverage is standard here, maybe not everywhere?
if you look closer, that area you speak of is an area that cars and big trucks frequently drive over. rather than having to replace broken sprinkler heads, i choose not to install a rotor head in that area.
you are correct, though. there should be a rotor there.
Including some hardscape in the sprinkler design would've also help reduce that rock spreading. Something like a decorative metal post in very corner or something.... oh well..
all commerical projects have a budget. general contractors never want them to go OVER.
on this particular project, the place is a whare house for friehoffers. they do not care about the appearance. they just want to get thier c.o.
