    Is Hunter popular in MI? I did an estimate last night for a couple that just moved here from MI. They said they had 2 previous irrigation systems , but had never heard of Hunter. Is Hunter not that popular in MI?

    Yes sir, very popular. Other than Rain Bird valves we pretty much use Hunter heads and controllers across the board.

    Maybe they're yoopers?

    You will find Hunter products everywhere around the Detroit area. I would think everywhere else in the state too.

    Are you serious?

    It's absolutely horrible. On top of things Brickman has infiltrated the area ruining the market for all of us. We have lost several large properties due to their ridiculous pricing.

    Out of work auto workers are cutting grass and doing landscape enhancements furthering the down slide.

    Hard to blame those guys though........we all need to pay bills and feed our families.

    It's the "Walmart" of the industry thats really screwing things up around here for us. The housing market is bad. Hard to believe the devaluing of property going on. Too many people loosing their jobs due to auto manufacturing going down. It's depressing. Gota stay positive though.
