New Windsor, NY (Zone 5A)
|I just move to a new home and my house is at the beggining of a hill. My neighbor installed an irrigation system. I did too. The problem is that when they turn them on, the water is going down hill to my lawn. My lawn on that side of the house is always wet a muddy. What can I do?

|If there is excessive runoff then it is possible that the system may not be well designed or there may be an installation issue or there may need to be an adjustment to the schedule the watering is done. Based on your description you might talk to your neighbor and your installer(s) about adjusting his/her watering system and adjusting your own system so they dovetail, function correctly and do not overwater.
