I just ran a new irrigation line and the backfill is in and sod is ready to be installed.
How high should the sprinkler head be installed?
Should it be flushed with the grade/ground or should it be flushed with the finished installed sod?
I am trying to figure out how high to put it, I am thinking once we have a heavy rain the backfill and sod would settled lower. I don't want the lawn mower to run over the heads that may be sticking out an inch too tall.
A month late, but......hopefully the sod was rolled, lightly, and the grade is stable. Don't know if you are using pop-ups that only come up and inch....or something that comes up 2 inches or more. You can have the sprinkler head flush or below grade and inch or so.
