Max Scott

Scott's Irrigation was founded by Max Scott in 1977. The family tradition of excellent service provided by Scott's Irrigation continues with Max's son, Clay Scott. Clay has been working with the company since he was 14 years old. After graduating from The University of New Mexico in 2006, he joined the company full time and became the manager for owners, Max and Carolyn Scott. Melissa Scott, Clay's wife, also graduated from UNM, and joined the company in 2008 as the company's office manager.

In 2018, Peggy Wright joined the Scott's Irrigation team to help with design, project management and estimates. Peggy Wright holds a Masters of Landscape Architecture from UNM and has over 20 years of landscape design experience in the Santa Fe area.
