First rental. New construction add sprinkler system.?

1 Reply

Currently finalizing details on a new construction home as my first rental. House is 148,000 with sod and sprinklers. 141,000 without. I’m planning on zeroscaping the front yard and for sure having grass in the backyard. The house should be completed in December.  Do y’all suggest I let the builder do it?  Or do it myself or find another contractor. Are sprinklers worth the hassle?  Thank you 

Sprinklers are a want not a need. A luxury item. So this is going to be up to you and your personal preference. If you want them I would get quotes from others in the area and compare that to your 7000 dollar estimate form your builder. Chances are your builder is up-charging you for the service and just subbing it out anyway.
