If you are installing a new sprinkler system or are thinking of replacing an older one, this class is for you. We will teach you how to design and install a sprinkler system from start to finish. From backflow preventers to spray heads, this class will teach you how to design and install an efficient sprinkler system as good as the pros. Learn how to properly size pipes and proper placement of sprinkler heads for maximum efficiency.
Let’s face it, that little plastic box on the side of your house that controls the watering of your yard can be intimidating! However, it is important to know how to work your irrigation controller because outdoor watering is often the largest water use for a household. This class will teach you how to properly water the plants and grass in your yard. You will also get hands-on experience by learning how to program an actual controller in class. Take what you learn and apply it to your yard for a healthier-looking and more water-efficient landscape.
Early spring is a great time to find and fix those leaks in your irrigation system (before the summer heat arrives). If your system is giving you trouble and you don’t know why, this class will teach you not only how to locate your problems but also how to fix them! Whether you have sprinklers, bubblers, or drip, we’ll equip you with the knowledge and confidence to make repairs to your irrigation system.
Do you find yourself increasing the amount of time you run your sprinklers and drip to keep your yard looking good? It could be your irrigation system’s performance is causing the problem. Often irrigation systems were poorly designed and installed in the first place. Simply improving the existing system in most cases means you don’t have to rip out the old one and start over from scratch. This class will show you how to identify problems with the efficiency of your irrigation system and how to improve it. Increasing your irrigation system’s performance will mean having a great looking yard that uses less water.
