XERISCAPE: LANDSCAPING WITH STYLE in the ARIZONA DESERT

       


Take Photos and Update the Irrigation System Plan
  • Before backfilling the irrigation lines, photograph each section of the yard. Begin at one end and work in strips, either lengthwise or vertically.
  • Label the photos to correspond with the sequence you chose and keep them with your irrigation system plan. These photographs will help to verify the exact location of your irrigation system components when it is time to make repairs.
  • If you installed trenches or other system components differently than what appears on the irrigation system plan, revise the plan to show the actual location of each line. This updated "as built" plan can save time and labor in the future.

Irrigation components that are properly installed and easy to reach will contribute toward a water-efficient irrigation system
