    We just got a new water well at home and its time to install an irrigation system in the front yard, its mainly grass and one flower bed but I plan on adding one or two more beds later down the road.

    What do you guys need to help me design and install ? measurements flow on well pump ? etc

    this is at my own house and I will do all the work my self will rent tools if I have to but I think the digging can be done by hand.

    I think some Home Depot's have a Saturday morning workshop that will teach you.:)

    A bunch of info needs to be provided but before we get to that do you know if your town in the Republic of New Jersey even allows unlicensed irrigation work by home owners?

    Personally, if I were you, and you can do the work yourself - simply take the survey plat of the residence and grounds to your closest irrigation supply house. Have those guys design it for you and provide the material take off. Buy your parts there and hack away.

    Then if your town allows home owner work you'll have everything needed to do a quality install.
