Drip Irrigation (also known as micro irrigation or trickle irrigation) is a irrigation method that slowly applies water to plant roots by depositing the water either directly to the root zone or on the soil surface. Drip irrigation systems use a device called a micro spray head which sprays water on a small area which make it an efficient, low volume, and reliable way to water. This irrigation system is one of the most important innovations in watering since the impact sprinkler was invented in the 1930’s.
In ancient times, drip irrigation was accomplished by using clay pots that were buried and filled with water which then seeped into the soil. This type of irrigation is an efficient, low volume, and, reliable way to water hanging baskets, vegetable gardens, ground cover, and flower beds because the water is delivered at or close to the root zones of the plants. The benefits of this type of irrigation include less work for you, healthier plants, and design flexibility. Irrigation Solutions can install a drip irrigation system for your home or business.

A head matrix of sprinklers can be designed to diagram the locations of sprinkler heads, the type of sprinkler heads, and the number of zones to increase the efficiency of watering. In addition, regular maintenance checks can be scheduled, evaporation can be reduced by watering when the sun is down or low and the temperatures are cooler, and a drip irrigation system employed.
