  • Placement and flow rate of sprinkler heads
  • Landscape type and sun exposure
  • The amount of sun exposure per zone

  • Outline the potential savings and associated return on investment by improving your system with efficient scheduling, and hardware or controller upgrades
  • Create a customized irrigation watering schedule that is tailored to your property’s landscape

The goal of the assessment is to identify cost effective ways to increase the efficiency of your system and reduce water waste. The return on investment section of the report will help you to identify and prioritize areas in need of improvement.

A WSIP assessment can:

  • Ensure the health and beauty of your landscape while saving money
