Drip irrigation systems are designed to be extremely efficient, which benefits you the owner as well as the environment. They rely on a low flow of water rather than the high pressure that is required to sustain traditional sprinkler systems. Drip irrigation channels slow drips of water directly to the base of plants. Delivering water straight to where it’s needed most reduces evaporation and cuts out wasteful runoff. Additionally, funneling water directly to plants means that this water will not become stagnant nor support the growth of unwanted weeds. Flexibility is another benefit of drip irrigation systems that boosts efficiency. These irrigation systems can be installed in both new and existing landscapes and can be easily adapted to work with a variety of terrains and environmental conditions.
