Lawn Irrigation Self Audit (LISA)   arrow

LISA logo, toolkit, turf and plug tester

Arid climates like we have in Colorado require us to learn more about our lawns and how to water them. You can use the LISA toolkit to help you use your water more efficiently when irrigating your lawn. Landscape irrigation audits have been around for several years, however professional audits can be costly. For this reason, Colorado State University Extension developed the LISA toolkit for homeowners to take action against irrigation practices that can lead to over or under watering of lawns. The LISA toolkit has all the necessary tools you will need to measure the water application rates for your lawn irrigation system at home. The toolkit is designed to be used for lawns that are irrigated using sprinkler systems. Please visit to access additional resources or turn your lawn irrigation data into a customized irrigation schedule.
