About the Author:

Straw has worked in a nursery and landscaping business for 15 years. He has designed, installed, and retrofitted irrigation systems for residential landscapes, nurseries, and specialty plant growers. Currently he works for Florida Nursery in Hemet, CA.

From Booklist:

An irrigation system contributes to a landscape's overall health. However, gardeners who might be considering putting in some sort of watering device should be aware of the cost and often considerable work involved. This guide should promote understanding of techniques used in installing such devices and how to evaluate the soil and microclimate of a given yard. Line drawings and photographs illustrate many types of equipment as well as various designs for irrigating systems. Whether the reader is a do-it-yourself gardener or someone about to hire a landscaping contractor, Hendrix and Straw have written a manual that provides accessible definitions, usable plans, and concise explanations of how systems work. Alice Joyce
