Grass Drip Irrigation

Solution for the difficulty of your lawn water delivery system.

Old-fashioned lawn maintenance has recently been getting a bad reputation as it appears to be unfriendly on the environment. Yet, with us helping you through drip irrigation, you can have your grass and be sustainable too. Drip Irrigation is a system of crop irrigation that involves in controlling the delivery of water directly to the individual plants through a network of pipes. It is the most effective method for supplying water and nutrients for growing crops, plants, or even grass on your lawn. 

Water and nutrients are distributed in pipes called ‘dripperlines’ which feature smaller units known as ‘drippers’ across the field. Every dripper emits drops containing water and nutrients, resulting in a uniform application of water and nutrients directly across the entire field to the root zone of each plant. Plants want to get their water and nutrients in a healthy way just as humans do. No one wants to eat food in one day for a month and the same goes for plants. That is why drip irrigation often and in limited amounts applies water and nutrients, maintaining optimum growing conditions that help to achieve the highest possible yields.

Here is why drip irrigation makes plants more productive:

  • Water and nutrient dosages adjusted to the growth needs of plants.
  • Avoids high salinity due to improper application of the fertilizer.
  • Strong water and nutrients supply.

There are several benefits that drip irrigation systems bring to the table, though some significant drawbacks are also present. Let’s take a look at each one, and see whether a drip system is the right watering solution for your garden or not.

A drip irrigation system’s most prominent advantage is their ability to conserve water. There is little or no evaporation as a result of being so straightforward with the water delivery. The soil soaks up almost 100 percent and a complete 100 percent in underground systems of water, meaning very little wastage. And if you use in irrigated water a soluble fertilizer, you will even save on the fertilizer. Drip irrigation completely cancels out wind drift. Wind drift is the impact wind can have on high-flow systems like sprinklers and can be an extremely inefficient one. The water supplied to your garden will end up in places that really don’t need it and get dirtied by it, such as driveways and footpaths. 

On the other hand, due to the fact that drip systems are built to emit only a tiny amount of water, many of their outlets and openings are similarly small. This makes the drip systems very vulnerable to clogging. If you have access to potable water in your yard, this minimizes the likelihood that clogs can grow as fewer particles are in the water, but even then it is advised to flush out the system every few months.

When all’s said and done, a drip system is the obvious solution to the question of watering your garden bed.
