If you really want to out-lush your neighbors, an irrigation system can give you an edge, especially if they don't have one. The trick is to water the lawn enough, and evenly, so moisture soaks four to six inches into the soil. Costs vary depending on your plumbing, the parts you buy, water pressure, the shape of the lawn (square is cheaper than a trapezoid) and the landscaping.
