DRIP SYSTEM- The BEST for Water Conservation


A drip system is the most efficient way to water your desert landscape, including drought resistant plants. Emitters are installed at the base of each plant for precise watering. Drip lines can also be installed to pots, hanging baskets and hard to reach planter areas.
 Studies show that well-designed drip systems use at least 30 percent, and in some cases 50 percent, less water than other methods of watering such as sprinkling.

A drip irrigation system delivers water directly to the root zone of a plant, where it seeps slowly into the soil one drop at a time. Almost no water is lost through surface runoff or evaporation, and soil particles have plenty of opportunity to absorb and hold water for plants. It also means very few nutrients leach down beyond the reach of plant roots. Furthermore, since drip irrigation delivers water directly to the plants you want to grow, less is wasted on weeds. The soil surface between the plants also remains drier, which discourages weed seeds from sprouting.
