We moved into a house with no sprinklers so we had them installed. Oddly enough, we had a really wet second half of the summer so it is kind of a bummer that we installed them when we did, but great to have it taken care of. It was a hassle due to poor communication from the company about the schedule, but it is done. Autumn started calling the workers, "My sprinkler guys." "Where are my sprinkler guys? When will my sprinkler guys be back?" And then down the street there was another installation and she wondered why her sprinkler guys were at that house and not ours.
They made a 2 foot ditch in the back yard before it started to POUR for HOURS.
