About the BTLIA

Picture of irrigation in action

Agencies, organisations and individuals are all entitled to expect very high standards of work and service from the turf and landscape irrigation industry. This expectation is considerably re-inforced when they deal with a Member of the British Turf and Landscape Irrigation Association (BTLIA). They also enjoy additional peace of mind through the fact that Members of the Association must adhere to a strict code of ethics, more info: .

Set up in 1978, the BTLIA is a voluntary, non-profit making organisation formed to promote the development, proper use and acceptance of turf and landscape irrigation equipment.


The BTLIA aims to...

  • promote water and soil conservation
  • conserve energy through the efficient design and operation of irrigation systems
  • enhance the environment by expanding the efficient use of irrigation for landscape maintenance and dust and erosion control
  • collect and disseminate information of value to Members of the Assocation, allied industries and the public
  • acquaint public and private agencies, institutions and organisations with developments in the industry and the part the industry occupies in the economy and development of the nation
  • maintain agreed standards of design, installation and contractual codes of practice.


Code of Ethics

The BTLIA operates a Code of Ethics to ensure that standards are maintained. Every Member has to subscribe to this Code as a condition of membership. A copy of the Code of Ethics is available on request. Should a customer be dissatisifed, the BTLIA also has a formal complaints procedure.

The Association's Minimum Standards

All Members agree to comply to a set of Minimum Standards covering areas such as system design and submission of essential technical details with quotations. These have been adopted as the benchmark for amenity irrigation provision in the UK and provide an important insight into the technical aspects of design. Copies of The Minimum Standards are available from the Secretary at a cost of £15.00 plus postage and packing.


Our Members

As well as subscribing to the Code of Ethics, our Members must employ a minimum number of BTLIA Certificate and Diploma holders. This helps to maintain our high standards of practice and service.

Our Members operate world-wide so that, wherever you are, you can enjoy the peace of mind that is part of the package when you contract a BTLIA Member for your irrigation project.
