Foto Story Friday #51 -- Sprinklers

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

We decided to put sprinklers in the yard.
Cody got picked to dig the trenches.

Next morningTroy had to finish up the trenching.
Then the fun started..... running the pipes
Gluing this end to that one and not forgetting to place the attachments for the sprinkler heads.

Scott was the glue man.
The others had to get in on the action!
Pounding the re-bar into the ground for the control panel.
Attaching the controls.
Back filling the trenches.
Even I got in on the back-filling!
All done!

That looked like a major job of work. You had plenty of help by the look of it!
Hope it eases things for you.

Underground sprinklers are a must! Looks good:)

It looks like they all worked together nicely--that's quite a story in itself. Here’s my photo story happy Friday!

Brooke said...

What a job! Looks like you had fun though. We just did the same thing. It's nice to have a sprinkler system!

Emily said...

Great job! So, will you be posting pictures of the beautiful grass and flowers that will result from this system?

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

Yep, I'm thinking we need to rent you (err, him) this summer! What a sense of accomplishment that must be!

CC said...

2 summers ago I put in an above ground watering system. It kicked my butt. I can't even imagine all the hard work that must have been put into this (actually, I can...). Great job!!!! Want to do my yard too?

We're putting sprinklers into my mom's yard next month...maybe I should bring your PSF as a "how-to"!!

Robyn said...

That is a lot of work going on.

Cafe Mommy - said...

Wow...I'm impressed how those little ones jump into the action. Great job!

Rachael said...

wow, what a project!

Now your crew can lay down sod -- or plant grass seeds. ;)

We have sprinkler system, and it often needs repair. Sprinkler heads get smashed, pipes wear out and need to be glued or replaced, etc. But it is pretty cool.

Ryanne said...

I need that too! We did get some yard work done yesterday...We cut down the NASTY juniper bushes...yay us! Now we have some yard work ahead! What a great helper Scotty was! Yay you!

Amy said...

Looks like a lot of work! Good thing you had so many big -and little!- hands to help!

Laura said...

Sprinklers are a lot of work to put in, but I promise they will change you life :)

Lisa said...

"A" for effort! That's hard, hard work. Way to go, and great shots of the work in progress.
