The Green Pasture

A green pasture for the horses.
Most people keep their green pasture watered with manual sprinklers. No one has come up with a pop-up that can take a horse or tractor on top of them. I researched, designed, and tested my pop-up sprinkler for four years and two months.
My other problem was low water pressure, so I had to have separate stations for each set of three sprinklers.
Basically, I used a 4" PVC pipe end cap.
The pipe has a tall notch for the supply line. It sits on a brick. If this is pushed into the ground, it will not break the supply line.
The pop-up is held in place.
For years people have unsuccessfully tried to irrigate their green pasture automatically. I succeeded.
