 Irrigation Repair and Maintenance 

Saving water in your landscape doesn't have to mean watering your plants less.  It should start with making sure that the plants are getting ALL of the water that you use in the yard.  In many cases water could be wetting sidewalks, dripping where there is no longer a plant, or spewing water out underground from a leak.  In this class you will learn how to fix these problems and many more.  Lots of demonstration with real irrigation parts and 20 years of experience shared with you by Jonathan Manning, Professional Nurseryman.
