  • Irrigation Design for Severe Watering Restrictions

    Friday, 01 February 2013 00:00
    Watering restrictions are in place in many parts of the country that drastically limit the number of days that irrigation watering can occur.  This has resulted in a very confined watering window, limitations to the types of equipment you can use, and the need during the design process for a clear understanding of the runtime schedule and cycle and soak…

    Irrigation Training in 8 Videos

    Wednesday, 05 December 2012 00:00

    Irrigation Training is video training sessions on all aspects of Irrigation F/X. Each training video is meant to be about 20 to 40 minutes in length, so that it is easy to review one video at a time. These training sessions cover:

    • General Irrigation including water source, spray and rotor systems, and piping, pipe sizing, and reports.
    • Schematic Irrigation dealing with irrigation on a schematic level.
    • Drip Irrigation including emitters, dripline, piping, and pipe sizing.

    If specific questions about individual topics arise after watching these videos, go to the chapter topics ofIrrigation, Schematic Irrigation, and Drip Irrigation for detailed documentation explanations.

    If you are fairly new to irrigation, it would be a good idea to review the topic Irrigation Theory and Terminology for an overview of the irrigation process.

    Cost Estimating with Land F/X

    Thursday, 07 April 2011 00:00
    This webinar will show how you can assign a cost to anything in Land F/X, for the purposes of cost estimating. The process begins at the Schematic level, where you can assign a cost per square foot to each type of built environment. Then through planting plans, hardscape, and even irrigation plans.
