Irrigation Update

Well, I managed to patch the wires. Unfortunately, there still doesn’t seem to be any current traveling to the valve box. It’s looking more and more like I may need to have a company come out and update our sprinkler system. I just don’t seem to have the time to do what I want to do these days. And with the kid on the way, I can only imagine how much less time I will have.

We’ve been fortunate enough this summer to not really need to use the irrigation system. Our lawn has only slightly suffered. The majority of the damage has resulted in a few dead spots in areas that were weakened by the salt and sand from winter. In the dead spots, we have have crab grass rearing its ugly head. Ultimately, I may have to dig up these patches and put down some seed or new sod.

Debating just covering everything with concrete…
