Irrigation Training

*** Covid-19 update – courses are suspended at the moment. Please email and we can contact you when we have courses available. ***


When designing an irrigation system there are many different elements to consider. Plant type, location, soil type, water supply, applicable regulations, to name a few, and the way these are put together separates the professional irrigation installer from the rest.

Aim of the Course

To ensure the professional landscaper is fully equippers to design, specify and install the most suitable irrigation system for their client’s needs.

Although individual days can be booked, our irrigation course has been designed to run as a three day course, each day building on the previous.

Each day includes a mix of theory and hands on practical sessions, including designing systems from scratch and assembly of critical components.

The training courses will be held in Milton Keynes. The cost includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day, a folder containing the course notes and additional useful information.
