A quick look on how the many decisions that we make in our landscape affect our water consumption. From the plants that we choose to the watering systems we install, to how we adjust our watering and the possibilities of rainwater and graywater. We will look at different ways to set up irrigation systems for small and large areas. Bring a part that you want explained or a picture if it might help me understand your question. Handouts will be available attendees to continue their research. 

Presenter Tom Bressan is the Co-Founder and the former President of The Urban Farmer Store, a 35–year-old company with stores in San Francisco, Mill Valley, and Richmond, selling efficient landscape irrigation and lighting to landscape professionals, homeowners and municipalities. Tom now serves the company in education and marketing. He published a Landscape Drip Manual in the late 70’s which was the first in the landscape industry and has presented papers at Irrigation Association Conferences as well as the Word Micro-Irrigation Congress. He has written numerous articles on all aspects of sustaining the landscape and the environment, including serving as a consultant for Sunset magazine, Ortho books, and the This Old House book. He has presented at Irrigation lectures to over 1,000 clubs, university classes, and organizations, and has served on many boards over the years.
