    If you decide to go with the landscaper make sure he uses his own guys and doesn't sub it out to some part time irrigation guy.

    When your central air system needs replacing , call a professional , then call your landscaper and see if you can save some money . Go with the original installer , do it once , keep your warranty . You cant beat a man at his trade .

    I agree

    I had to say this to a HO the other day as he was arguing with me on everything because he was an 'engineer'

    Everyone is a professional in their own field.. You can only specialize in so many things, thereafter you only have limited or general knowledge. Just because you know how to change the oil in your car, doesn't make you a mechanic.

    I agree too, pay the extra $700 .You know you will be happy and the irrigation company will be happy.
