Event Description

In this workshop, participants will convert sprinkler zones to the most efficient irrigation available - drip. Sprinkler to drip conversions are commonly performed by landscape professionals in this era of droughts. We most commonly see this in lawn conversion projects where the lawn is removed and replaced with low-water plants. Once the plants go in, the best way to irrigate them is with drip.

Participants will be converting two sprinkler zones at The Gardens at Heather Farm to drip. The session will begin with a short talk on drip design and hydraulics. Then, we'll install uniform grids of emitterline tubing for impeccable water coverage. There's nothing that beats learning by doing. Participants will walk away with skills and confidence that you can apply to future drip irrigation projects.
