You may schedule a free Irrigation System Evaluation if you are a customer of Austin Water or a qualifying water provider, have an in-ground sprinkler system, and use more than 15,000 gallons of water per month in the summer. We will check your system and help you determine an efficient watering schedule. We will also recommend irrigation equipment upgrades if needed.
Irrigation Upgrade Rebate Residential customers of Austin Water or a qualifying water provider may receive up to $400 in rebates for making improvements to their existing irrigation systems to increase water efficiency. New irrigation systems and expansions to existing systems are not eligible.
As a stand-alone or in tandem with traditional irrigation systems, we utilize alternative forms of irrigation for watering lawn, shrubs, trees, and gardens that do not require a broad spray pattern. In fact, a traditional sprinkler head would be counter-productive: too much water and wasteful overspray.
Micro-irrigation, or drip irrigation, applies water slowly to the roots of plants by depositing water either on the surface of the soil or directly to the root zone. This minimizes water usage and potential loss to wind or obstructions, distributes water effectively,andminimizes soil erosion from runoff. We have successfully revitalized trees that are outside of a typical irrigation spray pattern by incorporating micro-irrigation systems that provided focused and much needed water directly to the root system.

The city of Austin is leaning more towards drip irrigation these days. In our opinion, this move should not only be local but statewide. Other states have been closely monitoring irrigation system's designs, and in some areas only allowing drip irrigation. As of recently, the COA has been trying to enforce more rules and trying to allow drip irrigation during certain levels of drought.
If we are converting all or some of your existing sprinkler system to drip irrigation, it is done the same way as installing a new system. The only difference is that we use specific parts that reduces flow and have a self containing filter.
We were featured in the September 2007 issue of one of Austin's premier magazines. Our commitment to Client Satisfaction is one of the main keys to our continued success. We look forward to hearing from you to schedule a free consultation.
