I have a lawn care company of my own and I am actually about to install a new lawn in my back yard. It is very small so I have decided to install a irrigation system. I am sure it is as simple as it comes for you pros that do it day in and day out. The actual area to be watered is only 50 feet long by 24 feet wide. Then I will need to pipe another 35 feet or so to go under the paver patio (not installed yet) and get my line back to the house into the basement and to my water source. I have a six inch ditch from the house to the end of the property to be watered. So my first question is where do I start. What kind of heads do you recommend, what kind of pipe do I use for the water line, etc. Can I just lay the proper pipe in the ditch and into my house so the line is run, then deal with the actual install of heads and such in the spring? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. My wife told me yesterday that if she doesn't have a lawn by the week of thanksgiving I will be cooking for both of our families by myself with no help from her. So I just hate the idea of just sodding my lawn now and then having to dig a ditch next year when all I have right now is dirt. So throw your ideas at me. And I thank you all in advance for your help.
