The most efficient way to water your landscaping beds, vegetable garden, or container plants is a drip system. Drip irrigation is for non-grass areas to deliver adequate watering without drowning or drying out your plants. Sprinkler systems range near the 75 – 85 percentile of efficiency, while a well designed/installed drip system typically is closer to the 90 percentile or higher in some cases of accuracy. That means, less water is wasted and more is concentrated on the desired location for maximum return.
We only use professional-grade drip tubing that incorporates the strongest UV inhibitors available. With our drip system services, we do everything from installations to repairs and upgrades including check valves, pressure-compensating emitters with redundant emission paths.
- This system is good for a small yard or for watering individual plants.
- Drip irrigation is highly effective at supplying one to four gallons of water per hour directly to the soil.
- The advantage of drip irrigation over sprinklers is that there is little water loss due to evaporation or runoff.
- It’s particularly good for mulched areas because it can directly soak the soil without washing away the mulch.
