About Us

Born and raised in arid Monterey, California Jim Mathys experienced the need for water conservation at an early age. In 1985 Jim founded Terra Design & Landscaping to provide the residents of California drought hearty, beautifully designed landscapes. Circa 2010 Jim combined his extensive experience in landscaping, horticulture, and irrigation with his love of conservation and Terra Irrigation Auditing was born.

We’re helping to steer the landscape industry towards using water as efficiently as possible. Our ultimate goal is to accommodate a fast growing population and changing climate so we can leave our children and grandchildren with an inheritance of sustainable water resources. There is no alternative to water.
