Benefits of Drip Irrigation for Your Landscape - Enviroscape LA
Drip Irrigation is also commonly referred to as micro-irrigation, trickle irrigation, low-volume irrigation, or xerigation. The Drip Irrigation System is an irrigation method that minimizes water use by allowing water to drip slowly to the root zone of plants by means of a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters. Part of the drip family also includes “micro-spray heads,” which spray water in a small area instead of dripping emitters.
Drip irrigation is easily adaptable for use in home gardening, commercial landscapes, agriculture, greenhouses, and nurseries. With the drought in the news and water restrictions being enforced in some areas, conserving water and using it efficiently makes more sense than ever. With drip irrigation, water is not wasted on non-growth areas, and the plant root zone is maintained at its ideal moisture level.
It is generally less expensive to install than conventional subsurface PVC systems and uses much less water. We can help you put together the drip irrigation system that meets your watering needs. Drip irrigation is one of the most earth-friendly irrigation practices around.
