Course Description
Climate-based reference evapotranspiration (ETo) data can be used to achieve water conservation and effective water management in urban landscapes. Typical development guidelines and water conservation regulations require complex calculations to estimate ETo-based water budgets and irrigation schedules even though the formulas do not reliably estimate landscape water needs. There is a very simple yet accurate means of using ETo to estimate landscape water needs based on recent research. Participants will learn the new simplified approach for estimating landscape water needs plus how to use it and find ETo data.

Dennis is a sought-after speaker and nationally recognized expert in landscape water management, palm management, and care of woody landscape plants. He has conducted many problem-solving field research studies related to these issues, including noted studies on water needs of landscape plants and transplanting specimen palm trees. Dennis received the Arboriculture Research Award from the Western Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture in both 2010 and 2011. He has authored numerous research articles and educational publications and is the technical editor and co-author of the award-winning California Master Gardener Handbook. Dennis also leads U.C.
