Find a good subcontractor nearby. Locate a local sprinkler supply house and they should be able to recomend someone.

Or e-mail me a site plan and I might bid it. Looks like your about 3 hours from where I house trailer and trencher. :)

1. Trench time apprenticing with a master irrigator.
2. College or other appropriate classes to learn hydraulics.
3. Manufacturer sponsored seminars.
4. Classes that teach the relationship between water/soil/plant relationships.
4. Books for simple systems. Books for advanced theory.
5. Internet: http://www.irrigationtutorials.com/

As you can see there are plenty of places for a starting point.
