Keeping It Green

This is a deviously hidden cache very near my home.   There are many tools used in the arsenal of the homeowner to help keep things green during the heat and dry parts of Texas, this is disguised as one of them, which one, is for you to find! :)

Feel free to explore the side of the house and yard area near the trail.  There is no reason to beyond the trail or driveway.   Good luck!

I had seen many of these sold online as a creative cache type.  When I came across one in descent shape that I could clean and fix up, I decided to make it into a cache.

Hint: The name of the cache is a good hint.  Think of it as what helps in the task of the cache name?
A new cache that designed myself after seeing a couple similar designs online that were meant to be hide-a-key, a mock sprinkler head.  I found a broken sprinkler head that has been discarded, but that was still in good shape.  I cleaned it up and sealed up all the openings to make it water tight, since it will be exposed to the watering schedule by real sprinklers and mother nature.   I created a PVC enclosure that I staked into the ground that the sprinkler head will fit into so it can be easily removed and replaced as geocachers find the cache.
