It's Time to Pay the Piper!

Water is an expensive commodity at the beach but it is a necessity if you have a grassy lawn--and we wanted a grassy lawn.  Bill Griffin, our landscape architect, strongly urged us to install a sprinkler system.  I didn't want to but everyone I spoke with backed him up--if you want turf to stay alive in the hot sun, you have to water it.  So Bill's crew put the pipes in...

Bill's crew laid out the pipe according to the grid on the plan and dug trenches to bury the pipes.

It required quite a network in order to water all areas of the lawn and the beds.  Once it was covered up it was time for the turf.  I'll show you in my next post!
