During the summer months water restrictions are common during droughts or period of below average rainfall. Not only in time of drought, but also when you have too much rainfall. Consequently your yard cannot absorb anymore water or runoff is eroding your soil. Good irrigation is about balance and controlling water through out your landscape.

  1. An automated irrigation sprinkler system ensures watering times for your landscape or garden.
  2. Sprinkler systems ensures that your landscape and all your plants get the right amount of water.
  3. Less chance you risk of over-watering or under-watering areas of your landscape.
  4. Saves Money: No longer needing a garden hose and other extra watering tools.
  5. Greener grass and healthier plants will help improve your property’s value.
  6. Less run-off.  Automated sprinkler system can reduce this amount of wasted water.

  2. Superior water drainage performance.
  3. Relieve ground water pressure.
  4. Protect landscape & building foundations.

Using Drip Irrigation System

The dripped lines distribute water slowly and is absorbed into your soil evenly for optimal growth and a healthy landscape.

The Benefits of Installing a Drip Irrigation System:

  1. Water is distributed slowly and exactly where needed at the root of the plant without high pressure.
  2. Less evaporation on the surface level of your landscape and savings on your water bill.
  3. The soil surface between plants remains drier, discouraging weed growth across your landscape.
  4. Smaller amounts of water distributed evenly over time provides ideal landscape growth conditions.
  5. Environment friendly: Saves water; drip irrigation systems uses water than conventional watering methods.
  6. No manual watering as the drip irrigation system waters for you.
  7. Adaptability: Drip irrigation systems are easy to install and use with other systems.

    Wow! I never knew that one can opt for either a French drain or drip irrigation to keep one's plants watered. My question is how should one maintain either type during the colder months of the year? Should they be hidden or kept out in the cold?

    It's good to know more about irrigation systems. We're looking at having one put in our new home's yard, so thanks for the information about our options. The drip system seems great because it's better for our bill saves water!

    When we move to our new house, we will look for experts to help us install an irrigation system for our lawn. My husband and I have no idea with those kinds of job, so we thought that it would be easier for us to hire a contractor. It's interesting that getting an irrigation system would lead to a better-looking landscape growth condition since the water is sprayed to the grass in smaller amounts. I can't wait to see my lawn grow beautifully. Thanks!

    Irrigation is an issue that I am currently trying to get a handle on. Right now, I am using a hose with a sprinkler and I cannot say that it is easy. I am constantly having to move the hose and the sprinkler, which requires adjusting the sprinkler frequently. I am considering how to install a sprinkler system and exploring the different heads in order to determine what should work best. I started my landscaping from scratch and I will have a variety of different areas and zones, some of which I have not yet determined therefore I am trying to factor that into how to begin the system of pipes but where to cap off so I can add more later. Drip irrigation is something I am becoming very interested in as a gardener. I would like to figure out how to add these to my sprinkler system setup in a variety of planting beds in addition to my garden because we get very hot, dry summers sometimes and watering the tops of some plants causes them to burn in the summer sun. An entire post on drip irrigation would be great!
