Beautifying your property can be a substantial investment in money, hard work and time. Landscape Consultants can help you protect your landscape investment by designing a drip or micro spray irrigation system to assist in the maintenance of your estate or business.
Drip irrigation is a highly efficient way to water. A drip irrigation system delivers water directly to the root zone of a plant, allowing it to seep slowly into the soil one drop at a time. Almost no water is lost through surface run off or evaporation, making it ideal for slopes or windy locations. In addition, drip irrigation operates under low pressures and flow rates, allowing for odd shaped, narrow or larger beds to be irrigated more economically. Furthermore, the application of water at ground level eliminates wet foliage that can increase some plant diseases such as powdery mildew, rusts and black spot. A well designed drip system can use up to 30%-50% less water than other methods of watering.
Micro Spray Irrigation
Like drip irrigation, micro spray systems also operate at low pressures but use mini spray nozzles instead of emitters to deliver water. Micro sprays are designed to throw water over a larger area and are used in locations where drip emitters are not practical, such as large areas of ground cover, flower beds or in decorative pots and planters.
For a landscape irrigation system to be successful, it must incorporate the knowledge of plant water requirements, proper design, correct installation and the right component selection. Landscape Consultants will evaluate your needs, determine the right method and design a landscape irrigation system to fit your individual property.
