Well designed irrigation systems conserve water. Additionally, such systems also reduce weed pressure, decrease water bills, reduce nutrient runoff, and can lower maintenance costs.

In the first half of this class, we will learn about the basics of landscape irrigation systems and their components. Towards the latter half, we will design and build a demonstration version of sprinkler and drip irrigation systems.
