Advantages of a drip system

Some of the biggest advantages of having a water irrigation system installed are saving time spent with manual watering and saving water since irrigation systems are a great way to give plants a consistent, adequate supply of water.

However, if you are trying to water a place with no lawn that is only occupied by trees, shrubs, and flowers, drip systems can be an even more efficient way to water than sprinkler systems. By providing water directly to the base of the plant, it is possible to make sure no water is wasted and ensure the plants get the exact amount of water necessary to thrive. Different size water emitters attached to the end of drip irrigation tubing will let out different volumes of water flow per hour, making it possible for each plant to get the appropriate amount of water that it needs. Many xeriscapes tend to use drip system irrigation.

A drip system can also decrease the amount of water that will evaporate as all of the water is directed at the base of the plant rather than the upper parts of the plant. Also, a few inches of mulch can also serve as insulation that will save hundreds of gallons every year.
