I am redoing my landscaping and I am a little bit confused about what to do about my existing irrigation system. A couple of things that are going is that I collected multiple quotes from multiple companies and most of them had a quote and most of them had an itemized entry for irrigation.
I do have a functional irrigation system in the front yard and I do not have any trees in the backyard but I do see that there are sprinkler heads. Which I assume maybe working if we do some testing.
Now, the person I am working with right now says that he will test it, and if it working then he doesn't think that we need to redo the irrigation system. Which sounds good because I save money in that case. However, what I am thinking that "Is it worth it to re-do the irrigation system anyways?" This is because, if I consider the overall cost of the project then within that the irrigation cost is less than 5%. And this property is 20 years old. Would it be worth it to just have him re-do the irrigation system anyways?
- Also, I am in California, USA and I am not even sure if the irrigation code has changed since and I need an upgrade anyways.
