    I see some guys grade after the landscape is in, then I see some guys let the sprinkler people do there install then grade. I think if you put the sprinklers in first then all the grading is by hand this is very time consuming and lends the harley rake useless. What do you all think?

    Sorry, all I have is what I see for experience, but most of the guys around here rough grade, install irrigation and landscape, then final grade.

    Is everything being done at once and what is your part?

    Final grade and be done with it.....let the irrigation people be responsible for doing a clean and professional job.

    It comes down to you having to do more work if they come in before you. Assuming you're the guy making everything "pretty".
