As you can see by the comments, it depends a great deal on how many heads or drip irrigation connections you have, and on how difficult it is to install (i.e. going under drives or walks, tree roots, rocky soil, etc).

One thing not mentioned yet, I don't think, is if you have hard freeze conditions in the winter, you have to get your system turned off, drained, and blown out with high-volume compressed air (much more than a home or shop air compressor can give) before freeze-up. This can add about $200-400/year for the winterization plus spring checkup (a few sprinkler heads or valves will always fail to work right, or pop-ups stick) and for timer programming.

Also, be sure to put on your calendar when water rationing goes into effect if your area has that, to reset the timing so you do not get ticketed.
