I can not for the life of me understand why people who have these automatic sprinklers don't shut them off when it's raining !

But I have noticed that these people also have a lawn service to cut their grass.

So you pay money to have these sprinklers installed,then pay money for the water to water the lawn and finally pay someone to cut your lawn.

Every year mine would leak or not work. Haven't used them in five years. Living in Ontario we are getting plenty of rain this year.

Hey, proper lawn care ain't no joke. ;}

I'm one of the few people that actually mows their lawn as opposed to paying someone to do it.At least in my neighborhood.

The local cricket club which I am a member of, has these sprinklers on their main ground. The only problem they have the switch to turn off or on is the neighbouring state.

I put some cool ass sprinklers in when I built my house.

No grass etc yet, so easy to go sick with lines everywhere.

A couple of years later we had some serious drought so watering gardens was banned.

Washing cars with a hose was banned.

Crazy shit and a serious overreaction.

Actually the biggest overreaction was the government building a huge ass desalination plant.

Then the drought broke.

Then they cancelled the desal project half way through.

Now the dams are pretty much full and they have started continuing the desal plant as a backup.

I used to think artificial lawn was the way to go, but the more i see them, they look a bit tacky. Even the really good ones. At least you only have to take a hose to it to wash of the bird and dog shit.

Saw a dude vacuuming his lawn yesterday.

    • I'm with you and think it might be similar for me. I always loved H.E.A.T with Erik and was pretty much a Kenny basher as I wasn't a fan of those first 2 albums at all.  I had very low expectations and really didn't think I'd care much for new music with Kenny.  Anyways, I've slowly come around on Kenny as the singles were released and I'm enjoying the new album.  Yeah, it's not exciting me quite as much as the Gronwall albums did but Kenny sounds excellent to my ears and I'm having no issues with sound or production.  Just sounds like some good melodic hard rock to me.
    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun.

    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
