      Drip Irrigation Systems Design. Start by making a sketch or scale drawing of the areas you want to drip. Note the location and size of plants to be irrigated, and whether they are native (and drought tolerant) or introduced (requiring more water), and the location of water sources. Note distances needed for tubing and what fittings will be. Irrigation Design. Irrigation designers evaluate site conditions and prepare professional plans to meet the needs of an individual project. Whether focused on maximizing crop yield or landscape aesthetic appeal and functionality, effective irrigation designers: Evaluate site conditions and determine water availability and use requirements.

      Drip irrigation is a low-pressure, low-volume lawn and garden watering system that delivers water to home landscapes in a variety of methods. Through a drip, spray or stream, a drip irrigation system keeps roots moist, but not soaked, using less water than other irrigation techniques.

A great number of over-simplified “design it yourself” pamphlets have not helped the situation. A few of those pamphlets have even been scanned onto web pages (I was hoping they would be allowed to die a merciful death!).
