Drip irrigation, done correctly, improves water-efficiency, reduces costs, saves time, and leads to healthier plants and fewer weeds! Attendees of this class learn how to design, install and maintain drip/micro irrigation in the landscape. The class will cover reasons for using drip irrigation and how to hydrozone, or cluster together plants with similar water requirements in an effort to conserve water. We will cover components for various types of drip systems, installation procedures and considerations, scheduling and maintenance.
