    Here's my problem: I have a customer with existing irrigation, my problem is she wants flower beds in the exact location of her irrigation piping and sprinkler heads. Do i have to move her piping? can i rototill over the pipes, i'm pretty sure they are shallow. Can i just put extensions to raise the heads? Any help would be appreciated thanx in advance.

    How about raised beds? Try bringing in new topsoil with ammenities for the flowers. You can either raise the sprinkler heads with risers, get a taller pop up head, or use poly pipe to move the heads. You may have to use a combination of the above. shouldn't be too hard with the right materials.
