I'm looking at re-doing my own lawn (go figure) mine looks worse than any lawn I take care of. Anyhow, I want to start by installing a sprinkler system. Never installed one before but I do a good background of hydraulics so the calculations shouldnt be a problem. What I'm looking for at this point is some literature. Online perhaps, with some good install tips, possibly a list of materials needed. I havnt decided yet, to buy it as a kit, or individually. My lawn is small, about 1500s.f front and 1200 s.f of turf in the rear plus 3 beds in the front and 2 in the rear. So the system itself should be small and fairly simpl to design. I'm going to continue my search on lawnsite for similar topics, but thought I would ask anyway for links to online literature on installing irrigation systems. Also, while Im at it. Any tips on manufacturers. Since I dont work with wprinkler systems, name brands dont mean much to me. Suggestions on which ones to stay away from, or which ones have a good rep, parts availability and so on? Thanks in advance for your help.
