From the Publisher
Focusing on water conservation methods, this textbook provides a thorough introduction to the design and management of landscape irrigation systems. Coverage begins with the soil-water-plant relationship, discusses equipment and installation and ends with management. It is the only book that does not endorse a specific manufacturer or line of products.
From the Back Cover
A total, all-in-one guide to modern landscape irrigation strategies, techniques, and hardware
Landscape Irrigation is designed to function as both a professional reference and a junior- to senior-level text for students of landscape architecture, landscape design, and turf management. It is also an excellent study guide for young professionals preparing to take the LARE. Emphasizing water-conserving irrigation design throughout, author Stephen Smith covers all the bases, providing in-depth coverage of:
- Irrigation methods and components
- Drawing techniques and presentation
- Sprinkler and drip irrigation methods and hardware
- Pipe characteristics and hydraulics
- Control systems
- CSI irrigation specifications
Throughout Landscape Irrigation you will find many informative examples of irrigation strategies now employed around the world. Corresponding hydraulic reference data for all the examples are contained in a separate appendix for easy reference.
Landscape Irrigation is an indispensable tool-of-the-trade for landscape architects, landscape contractors, irrigation professionals, and turfgrass and golf course managers.
