PLANNING YOUR IRRIGATION SYSTEM
Step 1: The first step in designing a residential system is to measure the property and indicate the location of the house. We'll create a sketch your property with measurements and locations of all concrete or brick walks and patios, driveways, and fences. While measuring we will also locate any trees, shrubs, and lawns and draw them on the sketch.
Step 2: We will draw the plot plan to scale on a graph paper. Included will be lawn, shrub, ground cover, and large trees.
Step 3: We will divide the property into areas on your plot plan. Please see image to the right for a sample plot plan.
