I live in Norcross, GA (metro Atlanta area) and I'm thinking about getting a small sprinkler system installed. I have about 3500 sq ft of grass to cover but I'm not able to cover all of the odd stretches with regular water hoses. I have a 30ft stretch that goes away from the yard and around a curb and a small strip of grass on the opposite side of the drive way that I have to water separate. I have to do an orchestrated sequence in order to water the whole yard and now that the heat is here, it's more important than ever to water correctly. I'm also going on vacation for about 2 weeks and I think my fescue will die if I leave it to the rain to keep it hydrated. So with all that said, does anyone have suggestions on the kind of system I need and or a good place that will give me a consultation? I'm trying to find out a ball park figure of how much it will cost and how much damage it will do to my lawn to install. Or should I just do the best I can untill the fall and install and replant any damaged grass.
