As water becomes more scarce and more expensive, conserving water has become increasingly important. Here are a few tips you can use to understand how micro irrigation can help conserve water.

  • Drip irrigation places water directly on or near the ground, eliminating losses through evaporation.
  • Drip irrigation can water individual plants, which controls weeds and saves water.
  • By covering your drip irrigation system with mulch, not only is it made invisible, it also reduces water usage and evaporative loss.
  • Drip emitters are virtually immune to water losses from wind or overspray.
  • Drip irrigation waters slowly with no run-off, so the plants use every drop.
  • Drip and micro irrigation are the most efficient methods for watering individual plants, gardens and groundcover areas.
