The Historic Estate at Sunnylands
THE HISTORIC ESTATE AT SUNNYLANDS
Irrigation design solutions were provided to improve tree health by designing an irrigation system to span the canopies of the tree lines and separating their irrigation from the surrounding golf course. This allowed properly managed irrigation during summer months when the course is inactive.
The trees on the 200 acre site were evaluated and irrigation construction documents were provided in tandem with the golf course renovation. The system was designed to connect to the golf system utilizing HDPE lateral piping at the outer spans of the canopies using a vibratory plow to minimize damage to root systems.
Other design work included irrigation design for the historic residence, guest suites, perimeter streetscapes, and the administration and maintenance facility.
Design efforts received the American Society of Irrigation Consultants Merit Award, 2017.
