Many, many thanks to Jim Powell and Bob Kelley for working with a professional service to repair our 20+ year old antiquated sprinkler system at the entrance - it's been patched so many times in an effort to save on repair costs, it was basically held together with a wing and a prayer. Plus some of it was deeply buried and previously unknown. What a relief that it's fully operational - and again, thanks to Jim and Bob!
