I dealed with too many lawn problems, weeds growing everywhere. 2 months ago, my yard was half-filled with crabgrass, which I killed. I have this St. Augustine grass which I kept growing healthy now, but with this drought problem in the area and the extremely dry weather, I was thinking to let my grass die, let the weeds in and don't do ANY more work on the lawns. I am tired of wasting my time and energy to get a good lawn, which will never happen any time soon. When we first moved in, we poked a hole in one of the irrigation system pipes and left it alone for 2 years. The backyard irrigation system was working but 2 days ago, I hit one of the the sprinkler heads and I thought I made a hole in it. I looked at it, the sprinkler head was fine, but when I turned it on, water was dripping from under it. I guess when I moved the head, it broke the bottom or the elbow pipe that came to the head. I looked at it, it looked fine, but water gapes out of it a bit when I turn the system on. I thought maybe I can replace the elbow, I tried taking out the elbow out of the pipe, but the elbow didn't come out and I didn't pull harder because I thought I might brake it. If I brake it, water will run without stopping, the irrigation systems have water in them already. I just left it alone and I am tired of these sorts of problems. My water bill increased by 20 dollars a month because of no rain for about 5 months and I had to water the lawn and this drought is driving everyone crazy. My folks don't know anything about lawns or irrigation, and don't care about it either. They said if we can turn off this irrigation system for good. My only question is, if I let the lawns die out, and turn off the irrigation system valves for good, and I were to sell this house, would the price be effected by too much, or will this cause any type of problem or devalue my land? ~Thanks The front yard looks uglier than ever, but I used round up to kill the weeds that make me mow more, so I don't mow. I have no grass growing except wild bermuda grass, the St. Augustine is almost dried out. The only grass I have is wild bermuda that came out of no where. It looks ugly, but I don't really mow anymore, and I kill the weeds that make me mow. Where is the irrigation system valve located anyway? The side of the house has 2 of these pipe things with a T handle. There is this underground box thing too, I believe the water meter is there though.
