5 Top Advantages of Drip Irrigation
|We all know that water is the life source to all things. We also know that your lawn and gardenthrives with adequate water. But what’s the best way to do this? What’s the best way to get water to your plants without feeding those pesky weeds, watering the house or burning those precious leaves? That’s where drip line irrigation comes in. Dripline is fast becoming the most preferred method of delivering water due its efficiency.
Why You Should Consider Using Drip Irrigation in Your Garden
Unlike traditional sprinklers, drip irrigation delivers water through a series of tubes. This line can be laid directly on top or lie under a layer of soil. Water is dispersed directly to the base of the plant therefore minimising evaporation. Run off is another factor to take into consideration and dripline is an effective way to minimise this. Dripline ensures that all the water you use gets to your plants, meaning you can use less water to keep your garden in quality condition.
- Increases Fertilizer Impact
As mentioned above, run off is problematic. And nothing is more so than when you are feeding your plants with fertilizer orsimilar applications. With dripline you can rest assured knowing the product will stay put and do the job it is suppose to do.
- Reduces Weed Growth
We all know that with water comes weeds. The more area we irrigate, the more our lovely friends will thrive. This type of system reduces a weed infestation as the water is going directly to the plants you want to grow.
- Low Labour & Cost
Drip irrigation is simple to install and easy to keep in place with staples. If you are a dog owner than this type of system may also be of special interest to you. Too often our canine friends love to chew on sprinkler heads so dripline avoids this problem
- Different Plant Types
Shrubs, trees, flowers and grass all need different amounts of water. Delivering the same amount of water to every plant can cause the loss of plant life or you may simply be wasting water on plants that don’t need that much.Overall, the purpose of a drip irrigation system is to help your plants thrive. By making sure that they get the exact amount of water they need, you can make sure they grow to their maximum potential.
