What Is Irrigation?
Irrigation is the way in which the supply of water is delivered to your lawn or plants to help growth. When done effectively, it helps to keep land and crops alive and healthy.
Why do I need irrigation?
Often we have irregular patterns of rainfall making irrigation systems necessary. It is impossible for seeds to grow in dry soil as there is a required element of moisture hence the need for reticulation. Unless you are going to manually water your lawn and plants then it is important to have an effective irrigation system set up in your home.
Why Is It Important?
There are three main reasons as to why having an effective irrigation system is important:
- It ensures even watering – when manually watering it is easy to miss spots, irrigation systems cover every inch necessary
- It saves water and money – it is more efficient than manually watering as it only uses the required amount of water to cover the area
- It waters when you can’t (or don’t want to) – due to many reasons you may not be able fulfil your watering duties where as your irrigation system will be able to regardless of the circumstances.
