    Thanks, it took a lot of time and money, and it turned out the way we wanted in the end.

    Spent a lot of time digging in the front yard this weekend. End-goal was to replace the water line from the street to the house with poly, and straighten out some of the mess of the sprinkler valves so I can more easily water the new turf in the back yard.

    Pulled up a bunch of sod and trenched down to the water line


    There were some especially fun places to dig where sprinkler lines were in places that are just bad ideas




    The sprinkler valves were just run straight out from the house, putting them almost out in the lawn


    also pulled up the sod in the parking strip, I want to plant some 'steppable' groundcover along here, thinking some low-growing mint would be nice


    big pile of sod to get rid of now


    front yard is always looking better


    and apparently I forgot to snap a pic of the new setup for the sprinkler valves...

    It's in the wrong place. Can't fix that.

    new setup for the sprinkler valves

    still have to build a cover/box for them, but it takes up a LOT less space now

    And a neighbor stopped by, and asked if he could take some of the sod

    Finally had a landscaper come through and fix up the front lawn. All old sod removed, leveled out a bunch of bumps and divots, new sod all-around



    and spent some time continuing to clean up the back yard
