    We have put a fair amount of drip line in established yards. There isn't any machine yet that does this on small scale. So we use a trimmer to make the line and a simple edger to cut down to the correct depth. Then you flood the edge and simply push the line down into place using the anchors to hold it down. It doesn't take very long on small area like that. One guy on the edger can stay ahead of two guys dropping the line.

    i have a mechanical asphalt edge cutting attachment for a backhoe/excavator that might work well for making the cuts for small applications such as these.

    well, another ugly Fing wall. what the hell is the purpose of that? it ruins what otherwise looks like a fantabulous lawn and trees and such. that is ******ed and a waste of money, and resources on the part of both the client AND the sculptor. idiots

    It's a jumped-up sod-cutter with a plow blade, and light enough for you to steer it by forcing it left and right
