Please help me get started

Hi all, please see my sketch of what I would like to do with my yard. I'm in the process of sending this diagram to the free design service offered here by the equipment manufacturers, however I fear I'll get back an over-engineered plan and not the best one that it can be from those on these forums. Any help is greatly appreciated.

"Over-engineered" plans can be better than something a savvy pro would come up with, when all the purchasing and work will be done by a third party.

ok..then I will fill out the pressure info they require and send it along. I was trying to avoid the over-selling tactics that I saw others have commented on. Thanks.

The info that you give them should be as accurate as possible. Use the graph paper, measure gpm and psi accurately.

I used the Toro service. It taught me allot, I still made mistakes. The Hunter DIY manual is very good you should read it. Also Rain Bird seems to be preferred here over Toro. Doesn't cost anything to get plans from both services.

Read the SW blog also.
