Every sprinkler head needs a dog collar

  1. regardless they still are a 100 times better than the STL ball rotor and distribute better than any rotor in a comparable design. Plus you can cheat on your spacing and still get great coverage.

    I thought that green dish was a bird bath that gets refilled every time the zone goes off!

    A lawn full of those would be attractive. Where do I get some? My kids would love to snap their ankles while playing on the lawn with those things on it.

    I did a new service job a few days ago and had a neighbour come across and ask why I don't make pvc sleeves to slip over the sprinklers so they don't get damaged by the mower. I asked why the original installer didn't install them properly so there is nothing to damage with the mower. Apparently this neighbour mows the lawn for my client. I started digging them up to drop them down lower only to realise the bodgy installer didn't use swing arms either. Nice. :rolleyes:

    Install upside down to protect those high heads too!
    All kidding aside that thing is a joke. ;)

    In common Bermuda or St Augustine (see Boots photos) you get layers upon of rhizomes/ stems in a season, especially when cut with rotary mowers, that invade those Maxi Paw cans and hang up those trip levers.

    I can see where those green mini satellite dishes might help around sprayheads too, just to find them. Better than the idiots who spray Roundup around spray heads.

    Can't argue with that statement one bit.
  8. Why are those aggressive rhizomes and stolons there? Cuz the maxipaw is doing such a fabulous job they are doing a group hug. A yearly finger swoop takes care of that problem.
