A "Down-to-Earth" approach written to fill a need for a simplified introduction and overview to landscape irrigation systems for people new to the industry and as a refresher for those with some experience in the business that may have some gray areas in need of clarification. Includes ways and means to achieve good design, installation and repair based on genuine "in-the-ditch" experience and in-depth product knowledge and applications. Suitable for Students, Professionals in the Trades and for Homeowners interested in doing it right the first time!

Includes methods and techniques learned both in the ditch and on the drawing board which most anyone in the business will find valuable.  Over the span of 50 years, the Author has witnessed both "old-school" and "new school" products in old systems and new as well.  Advice is given with these in mind.  He has been in irrigation since drip was first introduced.  The intent is to simplfy one's basic understanding of a landscape irrigation system and to stimulate creativity by the user in his job and/or his or her system.  His motto is "don't be irritated, GET IRRIGATED!"
