Landscape Irrigation Scheduling

 The California drought continues into its 4th year, and state regulators continue to impose restrictions on landscape watering. These new restrictions may cause confusion on the part of landscapers and homeowners.  UC Davis has created an irrigation scheduling worksheet that can help.The worksheet generates an annual calendar to irrigate an irrigation zone based on several factors. The user enters information about their site to find out how much to water their landscape.

Before using the irrigation scheduling worksheet, the user will need to first conduct an irrigation assessment to determine the distribution uniformity of the irrigation system.  If needed, download instructions at Landscape Irrigation System Evaluation and Management.
