There are a few different types of irrigation systems available today. Soaker hoses slowly squirt out water, as they are perforated along the length of the hose. They are the ideal option for gardeners who need to deeply water their gardens. Next, you have the traditional spray systems which are often used for shrubs and turf. Another option that applies more water than spray heads is rotor systems, which are used to cover large areas of land. Last but least, there are also drip irrigation systems, which have grown in popularity amongst landscapers in recent years.
What Are Drip Irrigation Systems?
A drip irrigation system is a watering system that supplies the soil with a slow, but a continuous supply of water. This type of system is comprised of emitters and pipes.
As stated before, drip irrigations have become a popular irrigation option. One of the most appealing benefits of a drip irrigation system is that it is water efficient. Since this type of system slowly drips water into the ground, it has time to soak into the ground. The water is not lost due to evaporation, and therefore less water is needed compared to the other types of irrigation systems. If you start using a drip irrigation system, you can expect to save money on your water bills.
Better For Plants
Drip irrigation systems are great for the health of a plant because they place water at the root of the plant. For most plants to thrive, that is where moisture is needed.
They Can Be Hidden
If you want your landscape to look its best, you may not want to have your irrigation system visually exposed. An advantage of drip systems is that they can be buried underneath a layer of mulch.
Since drip irrigation systems dispense water around the plant, weeds won’t have access to water, which limits germination.
