The Grass Patch crew showed up today to start digging and putting the irrigation pipes in our backyard around our new pool and in the front yard.
All this dirt is going to be taken to the back to try to flatten out an area that is sloped that I hope to be more flat. They'll build a short retaining wall in one section of the backyard to achieve that.
We've never had a sprinkler system in the front (I'm it), and I'm so glad to not have to worry about it any more. What a pain it's been, although I don't really have to water the grass very often because of our humid climate.
One totally ridiculous observation is that they put the valve box or what ever that rectangle green plastic thing is, in the middle of our lawn. What the heck? I don't think so! Of course, I didn't notice it today while they were here digging. I'm going to request that they move it tomorrow to a less "center of the yard" location. It was so bizarre to me that they'd think that would be fine.
