Abstract/Contents:"If water conservation does not get your attention, perhaps improved turf quality will. Both of these effects are products of a properly designed and managed irrigation system. Simply installing an irrigation system to provide coverage to a lawn, golf course, or athletic field does not constitute design. Climatic conditions, rootzone properties, grass species, turf use, and water source must all be considered. In addition, pipe size, nozzle diameter, operating pressure and spacings, which together determine the rate and uniformity of application of water, must also be considered. Efficient use of water will, in time, become the most important design consideration for an irrigation system."
