We have a lot of irrigation clients and the vast majority of them have sprinkler systems for their lawns only. You may be one of them. You want a lawn that’s healthy and green, and you know that proper watering (along with fertilizing and lawn care) is the key to having one. You see your irrigation system as an investment in your property.
What about your planting beds? Don’t you want trees, shrubs and bedding plants that are as lush and healthy as your lawn? If so, you may want to consider investing in a drip irrigation system for your beds.
Unlike a lawn sprinkler system that broadcasts water over large areas, a drip irrigation system uses low-volume drip emitters and micro sprays to deliver water directly to the root zone of your plants.
Trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals all need different amounts of water to thrive. A drip irrigation system can be designed to deliver the exact amount of water your plants need for peak health. Also, by delivering the water directly to the roots of your plants rather than spraying the leaves, diseases like foliar fungus are greatly reduced.
By giving your plants the exacts amount of water they need, no more and no less, a drip system lets you better control your water usage and still maintain healthy plants. Saving water means you save money!
