When To Consider Drip Irrigation:

Drip irrigation systems are most effective for smaller watering areas, like:
  • Planters
  • Hedges
  • Gardens
  • Decorative flowerbeds

How Does Drip Irrigation Work?

Using a specially designed irrigation system comprised mostly of valves and tubing, drip irrigation slowly drips water onto plants, flowers, and sometimes crops. The system is designed to get water right to the roots of plants, rather than spraying it onto leaves, petals, and stems. Some systems use as little as one-fifth of a gallon of water per hour for the average-sized planter or flowerbed. Micro irrigation is a form of drip irrigation, noteworthy due to the especially small tubing used throughout the system that allows for an even slower, more controlled drip.

There are two types of drip irrigation and micro irrigation methods:

  • Surface: The dripline is placed above the ground or rests on the soil, where it drips near the roots. Surface drip irrigation systems can be moved and modified as needed.
  • Subsurface or subterranean: The dripline is buried beneath the soil, sometimes as deep as 12 or so inches. Subsurface drip irrigation is a fantastic way to get water right to the roots of your property’s greenery, but it is more difficult to move and modify due to its subterranean placement.

The Benefits Of Drip Irrigation

Drip irrigation is one of the most effective ways to irrigate landscapes without wasting precious resources. Here's why:

  1. Saves Water: Drip systems deliver water directly to plant roots, reducing evaporation losses significantly compared with traditional sprinkler methods. We can help you conserve water by up to 60%.
  2. Promotes Healthy Growth: The slow release of water ensures plants receive just enough moisture they need without overwatering or underwatering them which promotes healthy growth.
  3. Reduces Weeds: Since water is applied only to the plant roots, it discourages weed growth that often thrive with traditional watering methods.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can drip irrigation be installed in existing landscapes?

Yes, drip irrigation can be retrofitted into existing landscapes. Our drip irrigation systems are tailored to what is best for your home.

Is a drip irrigation system easy to maintain?

These systems are relatively low maintenance, but they do require periodic inspection and upkeep to ensure optimal performance. Our team’s maintenance services will keep your drip irrigation system running efficiently, and include checking for leaks, cleaning filters, and adjusting emitters as needed.

Can drip irrigation be automated?

Yes, we offer smart irrigation, meaning that our drip irrigation systems can be automated using timers, controllers, weather sensors, and soil sensors to regulate watering schedules! This allows for precise control over watering frequency and duration, ensuring that plants receive the right amount of water at the right time.

Best Uses for Drip Irrigation

  • Potted or Hanging Planters

    Drip irrigation works great for potted or hanging plants on decks, porches, or balconies. Plants in hanging planters or decorative pots can benefit from getting water straight to the roots so they can thrive all season long. Plus, this will save you the hassle of individually watering each container.

  • Gardens and Raised Beds

    Deliver the precise amount of water to each row or patch of your garden. Utilizing drip irrigation in fruit or vegetable gardens also helps decrease the likelihood of weed and fungus growth. Conserva technicians are experts in designing water-saving systems for your gardens.

  • Trees and Shrubs

    Drip irrigation can also be used to water more than just gardens or individual plants. Laying drip irrigation lines around a tree or shrub will keep the roots moist without wasting water where it isn't needed.

  • Hard-to-Reach Areas

    Drip irrigation can help you effectively water those hard-to-reach or oddly shaped areas of your landscape. Weaving drip irrigation through areas that cannot be reached by normal sprinklers can help your entire landscape look lush and green.

Benefits of Drip Irrigation

1. Precise Watering

A drip system places drops of water directly onto a plant at its roots, or even delivers water steadily under the surface. This system virtually eliminates runoff, as well as all chances of water evaporating before a plant has a chance to absorb it.

2. Water Conservation

Using drip irrigation gives adequate water to your plants without using more than a few gallons a day or much less, depending on the size of your property. Help out the environment and get greener with a new drip irrigation system from Conserva Irrigation.

3. Water Bill Reduction

Drip irrigation allows you to use less water and also helps out your finances. Less water consumption means smaller water bills. If you or your company are looking for ways to cut costs, then you should start by thinking of using drip irrigation where possible around your property.
