How To Select Garden Irrigation Equipment According To Purpose

Garden irrigation equipment ranges from drip to alternating portable systems and automated pop-up sprinklers. Choosing the correct irrigation equipment for the particular purpose and area is important to ensure cost savings and efficient water usage.

A few guidelines for the selection of appropriate garden irrigation equipment are briefly shared below to help you make an informed selection decision.

Shade Gardens

For the shade garden and hedges the drip system should be the preferred choice as water can be delivered to the plant roots instead of water landing on the driveway or walking areas. Easy to install and maintain, the drip systems are also perfect for areas where water restrictions are in place.

Manual Watering

If you need to use a manual watering system, make sure you get two long hose pipes which are sturdy and a few portable sprinklers. Choose a variety of sprinkler heads to ensure that you can cover the lawn area and also perennial areas.

Underground Sprinkler System

The underground sprinkler system is well suited for areas where you have ground cover and shrubs. If you want to water the lawn in this way as well, go with pop-up sprinkler heads. The planning of the lay-out is important and it is recommended that you get a professional to assist in this regard. The beauty of the system is that you can add automation ensuring that the garden can be watered at the right time even if you are not at home.

Drip Irrigation

The drip system is perfect for vegetable and spice gardens requiring daily watering in smaller quantities.  You can also purchase a drip kit for the patio areas ensuring that the plants can be watered while you are on holiday.
