WAIT! Before you "flip your strip" make sure you know what CITY CODE requires. It may be tempting to rip out all the irrigation from your park strip, but city ordinance still requires vegetation amongst the rock and hardscape design. At least 33% of the park strip must be covered with vegetative material (trees can be included). So, don't rip out those pipes just yet -- you'll still need them for your DRIP SYSTEM.
