Michael J. Krones

Michael J. Krones

Michael started consulting in the irrigation industry as a sole practitioner after earning his Ph.D. in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Maryland in 1989. He shortly incorporated and grew the company, initially with a primary focus on golf course irrigation. The work soon spread to include other large landscapes such as athletic fields, parks, and cemeteries.

Michael presently addresses projects that include LEED construction, parks, campuses, streetscapes, athletic fields, and treated effluent disposal, as well as other large and small landscapes. Environmental sustainability is a guiding principal that informs all of his work. Water and energy conservation is on the front line of a quality irrigation design, but he also considers the cradle to grave concept with regard to the materials of construction of the systems.

Michael holds a B.A. in Chemistry from Tufts University and a Masters and Ph.D. in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Maryland in College Park.  He is a Professional Member of the American Society of Irrigation Consultants, and the Irrigation Association. He holds Golf and Commercial Designer Certification and Landscape Irrigation Auditor Certification from the Irrigation Association, and a US EPA WaterSense Partner.
