Irrigation designers evaluate site conditions and water availability, then design an irrigation system that meets the client’s requirements and budget. Designers create detailed drawings that specify which types and brands of products should be used and how they should be installed. Irrigation designers also develop detailed lists of materials and cost estimates for their projects.
