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:
- Saves Water: Drip systems deliver water directly to plant roots, reducing evaporation losses significantly compared with traditional sprinkler methods.
- 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.
- Reduces Weeds: Since water is applied only to the plant roots, it discourages weed growth that often thrive with traditional watering methods.
