    You should never lean your tools against the house and why didn't you run a drain tile for the downspout while you where at it? and don't park in the driveway!

    Very clean. Is that hose bib attached to the mainline of the irrigation system or house supply line. If house, is there a backflow device?

    I cant even tell you were there, awesome job on the cleanup. If only our grass here in Dallas could do that.

    Its connected to the irrigation main about 100 feet away I had to pull the pipe across the yard and then bore under the walkway. the originally wanted the plumber to do it off the house plubing but he said there was no way to get to that spot because that wall is the garage and they didn't want to start cutting sheet rock. I used a sod cutter to move the grass for my boring trench.
     
  8. The yard people have pounded that downspout. I bet within a year that post will have those ugly weedeater slashes.

    So now the question everyone wants to see the answer to. How much ya get paid for that?
     
  10. I'd guess 1500.00 Sod cutter rental, bore, pull, material, cleanup
