Still ain't sure what you're talking about here,,, but I would have to say that understanding Horticulture, including root environment, is only going to help... Even if L&O means 'Lawn Plumber' one would definately want to understand Horticulture...

An experience I had with your other point was 1 zone covered a sandy hillside full of perennials and shrubs, facing West, and the theflat shady lawn up on top of the hill... I did convince the client to get the Irrigation guy to come back and do it right...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
