    ok true, but it sounds like the installation was half assed...the depth shouldn't really be in question here...aeration is 2-4" with 4" being the target depth

    I had customers aerate lawns that would never need it in a million years. Aeration is a big issue inside your head. Either get over it or lawyer up and go away.

    My neighbor has weathermatic rotors where the front lawn does not have head to head spacing. Two or three weeks ago when it was quite hot, her 20 minute per zone going every day was not cutting it. I showed her how to manually start her system . She had the system running 3 times per day or 1 hour per day per zone,every day.

    I had a client dial down his 3+-hours-per-week-per-zone-per-inch system to about 20 minutes every day, and the guy grew the thickest thatch I ever saw. Doubtful the grass roots got a whole lot of watering
