    What's wrong with that? Looks like a professional Florida job...

    Imagine the fun they'll have when one of those lines laid right along side of the foundation or those rotors gets busted by the LCO" weed whacker.

    If that last was a boot shot, some hobo wants his shoe back.

    Florida mentality... put in the irrigation line and plant a Fichus or some other tree on top of it. Then 25 years later hire a hack to redo the sidewalk because the root has broken through it, and don't worry about what's in the ground.... gee, where does that water come from?

    This guy hacked his way through the 4", and since there was no water in it didn't think he needed to fix it, so he went ahead and poured the crete.

    found this the other day. It looks as though there used to be a planter box in the deck that they closed up.

    Maybe they planted a tree under it.

    That underground RP is nice. Don't think they had 12" of clearance between the vent and the ground. I'm guessing backflow testing isn't enforced in the area.

    Yes, other than it not being connected, it's prefessionaly installed. See, they have rock in the bottom and they left their trash to show the owner the work was done. A true sign of a professional.
