The Beginning

Since 1982, when I was just 10 years old, I have been involved in the world of irrigation. I still vividly remember the first day of summer vacation when all my friends were off to enjoy their break. Meanwhile, my dad, Ron Smith, had just started his new irrigation business, and I was right there by his side, eager to learn and help.

The Lesson

By the age of 16, after countless summers spent digging ditches, installing sprinklers, and setting valves, I felt ready for a change. I wanted what I thought was a "real job" and became a bagger at Albertsons. After receiving my first $80 paycheck for 20 hours of work, my dad gave me my first repair job. I earned more in that single afternoon than my friends did in a week. It was a hard-earned lesson that taught me the value of skilled work and the importance of dedication.


My next chapter took me to the United States Air Force, where I served as a mechanic. This experience enriched my understanding of hydraulics, electricity, and computers. During this time, my son Kyle was born.

After leaving the USAF, I returned to my true passion—irrigation. I began working for a national lawn service company as an Irrigation Technician. My drive and enthusiasm quickly propelled me to roles as an Irrigation Install Foreman and then Irrigation Manager. Eager to deepen my expertise, I went back to college to become an Irrigation Designer.

Professional Career

After college, I joined Miller Legg, a full-service engineering firm, as Head of Irrigation Design. Here, I spent several years building a solid reputation in the irrigation industry. It was also during this time that I met my wonderful wife Angie and her daughter Sarah. Not long after, I was recruited by Masuen Consulting, a National Water Resource Consulting firm.

Working with Masuen Consulting was transformative. My extensive experience in irrigation, landscape management, and water conservation was rigorously tested and refined. During this period, my wife and I welcomed our daughter Lily, and I experienced a spiritual rebirth by accepting Jesus Christ as my Savior. I also achieved numerous industry certifications, marking this time as an unforgettable and enriching experience that prepared me for my next endeavor.

Insight Irrigation LLC

Now, 40 years after installing my first irrigation system with my dad, I am proud to say that Insight Irrigation LLC has grown significantly. We now have a dedicated team of nine employees, all committed to providing the highest level of service and expertise in irrigation. Driven by a desire to give back to the community where it all began, I founded Insight Irrigation LLC as a Christian-based business. We take immense pride in our faith, our dedication, and our unparalleled experience in the field. At Insight Irrigation, we strive to uphold these values every day.

Thank you for being a part of our journey.
