I live in Denver and am replacing old sprinklers/sod for a 100ft. by 100ft. area. My landscaper has brought up the idea of installing a latticed drip system under the turf instead of the usual sprinkler heads. He says the advantages are: 1. More water efficiency, especially in the high desert where we live. 2. Can water anytime Disadvantages include: 1. At least 30% higher installation cost 2. A little more complicated to repair problems, but this should be offset by fewer repairs as sprinkler heads are always failing. He's not pushing is at all, but I'm pretty intrigued by it. His general impression is that these systems will do well in the long run, but the longest installation he currently has is 5 years, so he's not willing to say he's a huge fan yet. The questions for this esteemed group of professionals: 1. Would you add any other advantages/disadvantages? 2. What is the long-term reliability of these systems? 3. Do any professionals plan to have their own yards done this way? 4. Am I crazy for even considering this? I know I have a couple of moles around my house. 5. What brand should I consider? Thanks for any contributions!
