Irrigation Design and Presentation Services

Serving the San Francisco Bay Area

As a property owner, when you inquire about getting an irrigation system installed, you would be concerned about the detailed dynamics involved in designing irrigation systems. Professional landscape design companies like Flora Terra Landscape Management Services provide proper documentation of all the steps taken while designing and installing your irrigation systems.

At Flora Terra Landscape Management Services, we follow leading best practices for irrigation system design and presentation requirements. From commercial complexes to medical campuses, business parks, retail and industrial properties, estate properties and home owners' associations, we serve all areas of San Jose, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Livermore Valley, Walnut Creek, and the Napa region.

If you are looking for professional services from your irrigation system designer, call us today at 800-455-0304 or fill out our online form to schedule an appointment.

An Irrigation Association certified design company is required to present to the client an Irrigation Design Plan that includes:

      • Site-specific information like a site map, landscaped area for each hydrozone, prevailing wind direction during normal period of sprinkler system use, heritage trees and reference to local information regarding location of subsurface utilities
      • Identification and location of all irrigation components including points of connection and locations of water meters, station/zone valves, flow sensors, backflow prevention devices, “smart” controllers, and sensors
      • Basic hydraulics (pressure losses and calculations) like static water pressure, valve and pipe sizing criteria and recommended system dynamic (working) water pressure
      • Station/zone and hydrozone information for each station/zone or hydrozone
      • Design of monthly irrigation water budget
      • Seasonal (or annual) irrigation water budget
      • Monthly and seasonal landscape water allowance
      • Monthly irrigation schedule (for each station/zone)
      • Source of local historical or current evapo-transpiration data
      • Source of local historical or current rain data including sources used such as the National Weather Service, local weather channel, local weather station (state location) and state cooperative extension service
      • Recommendation for frequency of irrigation system inspection
      • Pumps (if required)
      • Component warranty and product literature (provide to owner)
      • Recommendations for water conserving devices like rain shut-off device, soil moisture sensors, high-wind shut-off device and automated control system

The purpose of obtaining an irrigation design package from your irrigation designer or consultant is to get complete and documented site and zone-specific information, and values used in design calculations. This ensures you know where your irrigation and landscaping dollars are going and that all regulations are met with.
