    Had a little set back on our GMC 4500 lawn truck. It's been a while since we've worked on it. Got back at it again. Here we installed the electrical wire and mounted the lights.

    You guys live on easy street that soil looks like compost. Do you think that machine could be retrofitted with a thin blade to make a line for drip? There is a new big interest in drip but few people are doing install after the sod is established.

    Show us another closer picture of your WORK truck and trailer that is in the back ground.

    You can say that again. This was by far the easiest, softest soil we have worked with. We trenched all that we could with the trencher of course being careful not to hit any existing water lines or gas. Anything else that we thought would be to close we do by hand. Its funny you ask about that machine possibly being retrofitted with a thinner blade for drip line. I've seen a couple of guys installing drip under new sod jobs. But only in Texas. The guy with the business named Eagle Landscape. He did a couple of commercial install like that. It was the first time I've seen that done. I asked him if that was drip being installed under the sod. Because I couldn't believe it. Haven't seen it here in California yet. I'll be glad to get some pictures of our truck and trailer on soon.

    Back out at this residential irrigation system installation. Here are pictures of the back yard trenched and pipe in the trenches. And also installation of the front yard valve installation.

    So are y'all licensed irrigators or does California not require that? Also what kind of backflow were you putting in there?

    No we are not licensed for irrigation. Not sure if California requires a license to do irrigation installation. I know that if you have your landscape contractor license in California, you can do irrigation work. Also we are not installing a back flow preventer. You don't need one when you use antisiphon valves as to in line valves.
