Should You Get An Irrigation System For Your Home?

First up, let's define what an irrigation system is.

In short, an irrigation system is a means of delivering water to your garden. It can use drip-lines, sprinklers and misting systems. It allows you to turn on a tap and water your garden, rather hand watering or moving sprinklers around the garden.

Advantages of Garden Irrigation Systems

The most obvious advantage is convenience. By turning on a tap you can water your garden. If the system is automated, it can water on a schedule or water when water is needed by sensing the ground moisture.

Irrigation also provides certainty. We've probably all killed enough plants to know how easy it is to forget to water. As I just mentioned above, you can water based on moisture sensors. By doing this you can have a system that turns on and off when needed, even if you're away on holidays.

A good irrigation system will save water. By watering the correct amount of water when it is needed, it avoids over watering. By watering where it is needed, it does the same also. By combining things like drip irrigation you can water the plants that need it, giving them watering they need without excessive evaporation. You'll also avoid watering in the hottest part of the day. If you're not personally watering the garden, you're more free to choose an ideal watering time.

Finally, an irrigation system will give you a healthier and happier garden. Giving plants the water they need is the key to a good garden. If you've ever nurtured a plant, only to forget them for a short spell, and then had to nurture them back into health, you'll understand what it means to deprive you plants proper watering for a short period. Garden gain vibrancy by correct and consistent watering.

Planning Your Garden Irrigation System

The best time to plan your irrigation system is when you're planning your garden. By grouping plants with similar needs you can create irrigation segments within your garden. Perhaps your vegetable garden will benefit from drip irrigation. And your fenery will love some misting to create humidity. Combining plants with similar water needs will greatly improve the ease of designing an irrigation system for them. Some systems are easier to install into a new garden. Landscape experts can design the irrigation into the garden, laying pipes and sprinkler heads where required.

One you've decided what plants are going where, you can then decide how best to water them. In the image above, they're going to end up with a simple sprinkler system. Large areas of lawn can also benefit from sprinkler systems. Other gardens will need drip systems. If you're unsure what system will be best for you, then consult gardening experts like Focal Point Landscape Maintenance.
