    To start with I know nothing about yard Irrigations systems. So please be easy on me....
    The yard is 200 x 200 all I want to do is water the yard. I am on a well that is 225 deep with 22 gpm.
    What do you think this project would cost me. I'm in Piedmont NC.
    Here is the yard. It's not all that much in the back where you can't see.
    Anybody wanna give me a ball park figure?

    up north we could do that in 5 zones or less with 22 gpm from the POC inch and 1/4.

    Id bring a wire and good sized pipe to that island....prob toss a faucet in there for S and G's...

    With a pvb and RB esp modular clock that would tune in around.....hmmm

    5600 you take care of the backflow prevention.......

    not sure but I would think that the pvc boys would come in cheaper and make a bigger mess...

    Good thing the OP isn't in Texas - wait a month for some municipal pinhead to evaluate a plan they can't understand anyway.

    I would do it for a grand but I would need $10,000 for fuel to get there:).

    rotor is pretty close, not sure if you got to go ed but Stoneville is near Belews lake where we did that 2-wire install. It be safe to say you're price is in the ball park, maybe a little more for SCH-40 but the soil up there is wonderful to work with so I'd bank on easy digging. Of course if I did it it would have RB scrubbers and a real clock, and sprays on the shrubs instead of that stuff yall use up north.

    Okay, time to hijack this puppy. How far would you place the streetside rotors from the pavement?

    That question can't be answered until we talk to an inspector.

    i'd want at least 10" from the asphalt, since there is no curb. On one commercial job i did truck running out of the road was such an issue I put a zone of strips to cover the area from the rotors to the pavement... problem solved for the irrigation at least, the turf gets rutted up quite often though
