Expert Drip Irrigation System Installation in DFW, Austin & San Antonio
Efficient Water Savings Using Drip Irrigation
With Texas facing continued drought and water restrictions being enforced in many areas of the state, conserving water and using it efficiently is sensible and saves you money. A properly designed drip irrigation system will have minimal water runoff, little if any evaporation, and deep percolation.
As part of Andy’s Sprinkler services, our irrigation specialists implement drip irrigation systems to ensure plants, trees, flowers, and foliage get proper watering directly to the roots.
How Does Drip Irrigation Work?
Using drip irrigation, drips of water absorb slowly into the soil and directly into the root zone. You won’t have any wasted water on areas that aren’t growing. By placing the drip emitters just at the plant root zone you can water using much less water and with better efficiency. This irrigation method allows the water to move deeper into the soil, encouraging deeper root growth. In addition, the low flow of drip system enables watering of large areas using a single water source.
Another advantage of using a low flowing drip irrigation system is that high pressure is not required to supply water to the drippers and micro sprinklers.
Benefits of Drip Irrigation System
- Water Efficiency and Savings:
Applying slow drips of water directly where it’s needed eliminates runoff and less evaporation from soil and leaves, achieving maximum water conservation and savings on your water bill.
- Professional Installation:
Andy’s Irrigation installs your drip irrigation system quickly and efficiently. You will have your system working the same day.
- Eliminating Weeds and Water-Borne Pests:
By focusing the water on the root base of the plants, weeds will not receive the moisture needed to germinate and spread. This process also reduces the standing water which provides mosquitoes the chance to lay their eggs and spread disease.
- Versatile and Flexible:
Slow drip irrigation systems can be used in new and existing landscapes, easily adapting to configurations where there are slopes, rugged terrain, and areas that receive a lot of wind.
- Targeting the Root Zone:
Andy’s drip irrigation systems are meant to improve and increase existing or new root activity, which creates a beneficial environment for plant growth.
Conservation and saving money are two great reasons why you should invest in a professionally installed drip irrigation system by Andy’s Irrigation.
As you can see, a low-volume drip irrigation system achieves multiple objectives by benefiting your landscape, improving the aesthetics around the outside of your home, and protecting the environment. So if you’re tired of losing your plants, shrubs, flowers, and trees to hot Texas summers, give us a call.
Drip Irrigation System Cost
Drip irrigation systems are a smart investment for homeowners. These systems are more efficient than traditional sprinkler systems. Unfortunately, they are less frequent. Recently, though, we have noticed an uptick in popularity for drip irrigation systems. The reason for this boost in popularity is mostly due to the affordable price and elevated level of efficiency when it comes to growing plants and improving the health of a lawn.
Scheduling professional installation for a drip irrigation system can vary in price. On average, homeowners spend a few hundred dollars on a new system. These systems are run off an outdoor nozzle. All-in-all, the system is affordable and provides excellent benefits. Of course, higher-end kits are also available. Some factors that will affect cost include:Yard size
- The terrain
- Soil type
- Large trees
We will consider these factors when writing up a quote. Just know that we do not include any hidden fees or charges for services and products you do not need. At Andy’s Sprinkler, Drainage & Lighting, we are upfront and honest about our prices because we know they are worth it!
