    a customer wants a price on installing drip around this sculpture so the sprinklers don't spray it. they want a 10' buffer. it is 150' long so i am looking at over 3000' of tube. have any of you had done this with existing turf on this scale? I have done it but it was either before the lawn was planted or it was a small area.

    that sculpture looks like the bastard offspring of Richard Serra's Tilted Arc

    I don't have advice sorry.

    But I find it kind of funny they don't want water on this piece of frabricated metal to help prevent discoloration but they are willing to have a weed eater/ edger beat it up and throw grass/ dirt all over it? The grass goes right up to the base of these
