    I thought Id take a couple snapshots of my water suckin life suckin project I got myself into 7 years ago! Id limit it to a couple next time. Ive got 12 cottonwoods and they are desert thirsty from march or April to october.I start watering in march and it peaks at about 50+ gal per day per tree during the hotest months june-sept or oct. Adding the other plants totals 1100 gal per day . Water drains through the decomposed granit soil UP TO 2.5 gal per minute in some spots. $2 per day(for the 12 mo av) is a rough estimate of cost.Thats including most all the repairs,of pumps etc ive had,probably cause these are deep residential pumps and not the shallow farm pumps I we had when i was as a kid.
    They rarely iif ever in 20 years gave a proble. But then they must have been a wee bit more $ ?

    Now I know what is meant by the term "sinkhole" when describing deserts.

    For those of you that are curious,the cottonwoods are Fremont and theyre about 25 ft tall and 10 ft at the base. trunks ar 32 in dia.lets see 32 /3.14= 10" trunk dia? is that right? they look more like 7 in dia with a ruler ...Im math challenged sometimes.

    NEVER AGAIN!


    Thanks for all the help fellas.
