Sprinkler Trench

When we purchased our house, the sprinklers were wired to a controller for the townhomes down the street.  I then wired the sprinklers to our garage using recycled wire.  Now, years later, the wires experienced enough voltage drop that it wouldn't fire the solenoids.  I trenched a new path through the yard, and laid down conduit with new wires.  The sprinklers are working again.  And a new storage shed to keep outdoor-ish things outdoors appeared.
