Great for a beginner.,
This review is from: Sprinklers & Drip Systems: The Right System for Your Yard, Step-by-step Sprinkler Installation, Building Effective Drip Systems (Paperback)
I'm currently in a college class about landscape irrigation and have no prior experience with any type of sprinkler system. At 7 weeks into an 11 week term I've finally decided the instructor knows absolutely nothing about irrigation either as all we do in class is draw circles on graph paper with no explanations given as to the rhyme or reason of installation and use. In an act of desperation I ran to the library and picked up every irrigation book I could find and fortunately for me this was one of them. I realize the previous reviewer claimed that this book only provides basic information but for me that's exactly what I needed and it's been a huge help. Finally, I understand the various components that make up a sprinkler system, the termonology I wasn't quite sure about (from reading other inferior books) and the benefits/drawbacks of both sprinkler and drip systems. I wish I could have gotten away with just buying and reading this book instead of spending hundreds of dollars and enduring four hours a week for eleven weeks in a worthless class.
