    That must be one heck of a house and yard to need a system like that.

    Heck... Look at the bright side. Plowing means no backfill dirt to get wet and no backfilling. You should have it done in a couple of days. :laugh:

    We refer to this as "100% coverage" or in some cases (like today) "wet fog." :laugh:

    Its just me and my right hand man this time of year. I'm shooting for about 8 days.

    I'm hoping to plow everything, except for one spot crossing a driveway, I'll trench that and sleeve it.

    Its so rocky that the plow lines look like the old cartoons where a rabbit or mole would borrow along the surface...We have to go behind each line with a shovel and pop out all the rocks, We installed 3 zones friday afternoon and we already have half a yard of rocks sitting in a pile.

    Its around 2 acres. About 4 360's per zone, or 8 180's :)
