    I apologize for invading the domain of the professional irrigation specialists here but I thought this would be a good place to ask for advice....As stated above, I'm in the Charlotte, NC area & would like to have an in-ground sprinkler system installed in my home lawn, approx 10,000 sq ft of mostly grass with some landscaped trees & shrubs mixed in. Anyone with recommendations of who I should talk to in the area? Thanks in advance for your help.

    I've worked in your area before, but I'm swamped at the moment. There are tons of guys down there though, just use what you might have learned here and get some quotes. Make sure they don't mix turf and beds, and use a good quality product. Most guys in you're area trench and use PVC. You'll have the option to use sch 40 of course, I recommend it if you're going to be in the house for a long time. Don't forget rain sensor! You might ask Mike Leary to come in and supervise, if you have a spot for his airstream to park. Good luck!

    Mike's too busy installing his new favorite controller (WMSL painted blue to mimic Calsense) to spare the time :laugh:
