  1. I've got to travel behind enemy lines today (OKC) but will be back at it tomorrow evening. Will report back with findings. I did not find a twist connect and did not strip the wires. I wasn't sure if they just hand twisted them together or not. I'm assuming not. It just seemed odd that out of 5000 sq feet of yard space, I find a spot of an extraneous connection
  2. Well I just ran every zone without them tied together and they work. I'm going to just flag the spot and keep on trucking
  3. Just so I understand correctly, tie the red and white wires at 5 o clock (in pic) together?
  4. So I was digging a short line to lay some flex pipe from a down spout. I ended up running into some irrigation wires and am wondering if I really screwed something up. As a note, I do have a pool so I'm sure the pool guys reworked my irrigation. Do I just tie the 2 together? Any chance they're just 2 loose wires? See below
  5. I've been trying to find some dimension for the past 3 weeks but siteone has been totally out. Am I screwed for waiting so late? What alternative do yall go with? 75078 (north tx)
  6. So, after studying the sun patterns over the past week it looks like I will need predominantly shade loving plants in the beds. There are only 2 or 3 spots where maybe 4+ hrs of sun will hit. Based on the spreadsheet above, any idea how I should diagram this out? Any other options I should consider?
  7. Fair enough. I'm probably going w it bc it is the most cost effective at something like $25-30/cu yd. And I typoed, it's dyno dirt out of denton. I have some pretty grand ideas for the landscape but need to figure out some details like pH before I plant. First set of pics are post freeze but before the start of renovation project. I already removed the dead shrubs. The spreadsheet are some plants we're thinking abt. Prosper zone 7b (1990 map) north facing so we have majority shade but some sun in a few spots.
  8. Edit: although it looks like dentons stuff is called dynamic dirt but it sounds like it's the same stuff
  9. I'm re-reading this thread bc I'm redoing our front landscape from the freeze. I am or maybe was abt to grab some dillo dirt from denton to amend the current soil. Not quite sure whether i should or shouldn't based on this article
  10. You ain't from 'round here, are ya?
  11. Don't what? We're someone who did a ruthless reset. Bought a new house last summer and wasn't a fan of the front landscaping. I pulled 75% of the shrubs last weekend and am currently looking at what to replace it with. I like some sky pencils, jack frost for privacy screening, fire nandinas, etc. I need to find a nice shrub with some color that will do well in shade since we are a North facing home. 1990 zone 7b Prosper
  12. Maybe an odd question, but I will be receiving a profit of about $35-40k from a (syndicated) real estate investment. What applies during a 1031 exchange? I'm kind of thinking the commercial/syndication real estate game isn't for me and am trying to figure out what to do w the proceeds. Can I just roll it into my personal mortgage? Do I need to create some other home improvement note on my home to make it work? We would love to invest in a nice covered structure for the pool and maybe a small pool remodel.
  13. @cman would add on gabled porch be under additional structures or part of the regular domain? Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but we can claim these losses on our 2021 tax return since it was declared a state of emergency, correct? Also, if you extended into 15% of the value of the home, then you can request a property tax exemption or something like that?
  14. One pt as nurse is discussing the "going to sleep" process..."we will put this catheter in you so that you can empty your bladder". Pt "wait, you're gonna put something in my butt?" Spur slowly backs out of the room to quietly say "wtf"
  15. Anyone have a recommendation for a good suction side cleaner?
