* Water requirements: Water requirements per day at peak consumptive use and per year according to climatic   data and the needs of the planned landscape.

* Pressure Requirements: Water pressure required to provide the needed volume of water within desirable or   limited water window.
* Water Meter or Pump Sizing: Correct placement and efficient sizing for Points Of Connection to provide   adequate rates of flow to meet the above requirements or restraints.
* Sleeving Plan: For street crossings of water and low voltage wire.
* Design Guidelines: For consistent design and equipment use throughout a project.

* Sprinkler Head or Drip Emitter Layout: Providing for uniform distribution of water.
* Zoning: Separation of areas of differing water requirements and watering times. (Hydrozones)
* Circuiting: Control valve placement, routing and computer sizing of pipe according to topography and pressure   losses due to friction. Pressure differentials along a manifold or sprinkler lateral are maintained at 10% to 20%   of desired operation pressure.
* Programming and Schedule: Water management schedules as guidelines to landscape maintenance and for   compliance to municipal ordinance.
* Support: All specifications necessary to provide directions for proper installation.


Pre-construction Meeting
* Special circumstances: Discussions and descriptions of unusual site conditions.
* Intent of design: Explanations of intentions to insure contractor's understanding.
* Review of specifications: Discussions to ensure contractors compliance.


* Head Lay-Out. (Staking)
* Contractor Conformance. (Observations)
* Observation Reports.
* As-Built Drawings / Controller Charts.


System Evaluation
* On-site Observations: Review of existing irrigation products, system performance and current schedules.
* Water Used/Required: Comparison of the water consumed and the volume required.
* Recommendations: Irrigation scheduling, equipment substitutions, application techniques and methods.


* Value engineering: Review and Critique of existing plans for the purpose of reducing water and electrical utility   charges and irrigation system construction costs.
* Peer Review: Review and Critique of existing plans for the purpose improving irrigation performance and   reducing the potential for water related damage.
