Tyson Carroll replied to CassieNichols's discussion 'What do you recommend for a bike path treatment in a floodplain?'

Tyson Carroll replied to Darren's discussion 'Tree Protection adjacent to High Rise Building'
"Depends on the size of the tree, species, location, time of year, water requirements, etc. Good arborist and company that has done work moving large sized trees successfully will be key for survival. Do you have any more project specifics?"

Tyson Carroll replied to Barbara Brem's discussion 'AutoCAD - Mac vs PC'
"Problem can be solved by running through a virtual machine like vm ware or boot camp. The cost will be comparable with mac being somewhat higher but not bad. As Andrew alluded to this falls into the larger debate of Macs vs. PC's. Like anything…"

Tyson Carroll replied to Dustin Maxam, RLA's discussion 'Irrigation - Master Valves and Flow Sensors'
"As long as the pump can kick the system on and off w/o the controller you are ok. The downside of not having it tied to a controller is that if does not turn on there will be no alarm to communicate there is an issue. "
