Watering your landscaping can make the difference between a vivacious yard and handfuls of dry plants. During the spells of hot, dry weather we get in Fort Worth, it can get pricey and even wasteful to run your sprinkler every day, spraying wide streams into areas that do not need watering. You can maximize the efficiency of your watering efforts by installing drip irrigation. At Andy’s Sprinkler, our engineers and specialists can ensure your plants and foliage get ample water delivered directly to their roots.
Avoid Going Dry
As we experience long periods of dry weather and drought, conserving water will be top-of-mind for consumers. Drip irrigation allows small drops of water to slowly absorb into the soil and into the roots. In Idaho, one Nampa farmer who used this method found they cut their water usage by more than half, dropping to two feet of water per acre from the five feet they used to use. On another farm, workers noted they used 25 percent less water and half the fertilizer they needed in previous years.
Residential systems also work to save water, which means cost savings on water bills. Drip systems can work in a variety of landscapes and topographies, and they produce fewer weeds and water-borne pests as the water goes directly to the roots of your foliage instead of falling on the bare ground. Working with professional installers can help you avoid issues and ensure your system is correctly in place.
