I have decided to install an underground lawn sprinkler system. It's costing me over 3g's but I couldn't be happier. It takes me about 5 hours of shuffling hoses around the yard in the spring and summer to water the bloody thing. I get it installed within the next 3 weeks. Usually when I spend more than $50 on anything I get some form of buyers remorse. With this decision I keep pinching myself to make sure I'm not dreaming. The best 3g's I could ever spend. Too bad it didn't come with an automatic lawn mower.
The hood is ok too.
Because we have these hoity toity neighbours who point fingers and laugh at us slobs. I also like to have a decent looking lawn.
have u ever tried letting it die and never looking at it at all? and leaving dog turds on the front door steps of those who laugh?
Hire someone. Three thousand bucks would go a decent way in having someone do the work for you....no?
Even if I did, that doesn't add any value to the house. An inground system is a desirable selling feature. The cost would likely be recovered in a sale whereas hiring people to do the yardwork is a basic unrecoverable expense.
My neighborhood's getting worse. Property taxes keep climbing because these boneheads from Hongcouver and other places keep selling their shoeboxes in the city and buying places here to build their monster houses on. Friggin arrogant as$es can't even be neighborly and smile at anyone, but they do find time to whine about the lack of Canuck Tire stores, Costcos, etc.
Anyway, I only water the parts of the lawn that get dry. Worked for me in Kloneville, too. That way, it didn't grow all that fast and stayed nice and green.
About cutting the lawn, Kreskin, you need a self-propelled lawnmower, one of those screw stakes that people leash their dogs to, and some rope. You screw the stake into the middle of lawn, tie one end of rope to the stake, wind the rope around the stake, tie the other end to the lawnmower, start the lawnmower, and let the lawnmower go ahead and unwind itself from the stake. Whgen it reaches the end move the stake to the next part and perform the procedure all over again.
