Posted by on Oct 21, 2011 in Blog, News | Comments Off

Jim Davis, General Manager of Landtech Irrigation Consultants, is a certified irrigation designer by the Irrigation Association and an EPA ‘WaterSense Partner’. His 20+ years of experience in landscape irrigation design will be shared as a panelist at two educational series in the Fall of 2011.

Davis, together with John Bauer of Wahaso and Mark Coopersmith of ETwater, were chosen as a panelist for the 4th Water Smart Innovations Conference and Expo 2011. Water-efficiency professionals from across the United States and around the world gathered on October 5-7, 2011 at the South Point Hotel and Conference Center in Las Vegas. The purpose of this conference was to broaden the knowledge of innovations in urban water efficiency including products, policies, techniques and ideas and with this, one of the topics that was   “Harvesting On-Site Water Sources for Sustainable Irrigation”.

Later this month, Davis and Bauer along with Pat McIntyre of ETwater, have been chosen as panelists for the ASLA Annual Meeting and Expo 2011. This premier event for landscape architecture professionals happens on October 30 – November 2, 2011 at the San Diego Convention Center. Their topic again will be: “Harvesting On-Site Water Sources for Sustainable Irrigation”, in line with this year’s theme, “Landscape Architecture Rising: Knowledge Vision Leadership”. The annual meeting of ASLA this Fall, in San Diego, will be the largest gathering of the world’s landscape architecture professionals. More than 6,000 professionals are expected to attend, with an estimated 450 exhibitors participating. The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), which was founded in 1899, is backed up with their mission to lead, to educate, and to participate in the careful stewardship, together with wise planning and artful design, of cultural and natural environments.

Landtech Irrigation Consultants’ vision for efficient water use influences their entire approach to designing systems. They also encourage the incorporation of water-harvesting strategies and technologies, which reduces the need to use potable water for irrigation.

In addition to irrigation consulting with a focus on water-harvesting and high-efficiency applications, their rep-services business promotes installations of green roofs & green walls, and helps position a specialized team for consulting on ecological restoration projects. In all aspects of their work, emphasis is placed on using onsite resources in an efficient and responsible manner.
