Considerations Regarding Garden Irrigation Supplies

Buying the correct irrigation supplies is essential as mistakes made with the purchasing decision of irrigation supplies will be costly later on.

Keeping the garden in tip-top condition will require adequate watering. If you have the time to stand around watering the garden for long periods it is fine to use only a hose, but if you are serious about a lush green lawn throughout the year, consider some of the tips regarding irrigation supplies, choices, and installation below.

An automated irrigation system is of course the best solution as regular timing can be set, the pressure, radius for spray, and more. With an automated system you will not forget the sprinkler system on or need a reminder to water the garden.

Choosing the right sprinkler heads is just as important as selecting the sprinkler system. You will want to alternate between fine spray, drip types and rotary systems for the different areas of the garden. You will also want to consider the cost of the system and settings available to prevent water being sprayed onto the driveway and thus wasted.

Rotary heads are well suited for large areas such as the lawn. Mist spray heads are perfect for plants requiring humidity and drip types can be used in hardscape areas where you have also placed plants. If you can, go with the pop-up types for the lawn since the lawnmower blades will miss the heads. Pop-ups are also ideal for areas where you have groundcover and where you want to ensure that the water is delivered to the soil beneath.

Locating the system is just as important as the selection of irrigation supplies. Mistakes made at the installation stage will be difficult to correct and may be costly.
