How Does Micro Drip Irrigation Work?

Micro Drip Irrigation

Micro-drip irrigation waters each plant with individual care.

Micro drip irrigation is one of the most effective and efficient ways to provide water to plants and landscapes. It involves placing a system of valves and tubes at the base of each plant, which then allows water to slowly drip to plants’ roots.

With the harsh winter about to approach, yards will become brown and come spring you may need to hire a landscaper to bring both your grass and plants back to life. If you aim to have healthy plants and make your yard scream curb appeal, micro drip irrigation is the way to go.

Some of the benefits of micro drip irrigation include:

  • Conserves Water: With recent drought conditions and restrictions placed on water usage, alternative methods of watering plants and patches of grassy areas have become popular. The micro drip irrigation system’s most common benefit is that it uses less water. Once the drip emitter begins watering plants, specific amounts of water are directly applied to several regions and the roots of various greeneries. Additionally, most landscapers are gearing toward this method of watering landscapes and plants as it is both cost effective and makes their landscaping business stand out amongst competitors.
  • Healthy Plants: Micro drip irrigation is highly favored over the traditional way to water your garden when it comes to the health and well-being of your plants and other shrubbery. With traditional watering systems, a cohesive collection of plants receives one water spray; however, micro drip irrigation specifically targets each individual plant resulting in nice greens.
  • Money Saver: Micro drip irrigation systems not only save money on your water bill but, with the right irrigation system in place, the intensity of the labor is less and the overall maintenance cost is low.
  • Better Design: Unlike traditional metal piping that can be found in your bathroom or basement, the tubes involved in micro drip irrigation systems bend more easily and can be shaped into many different molds and directions for the most efficient way to emit water. Another advantage to the design is that the system lays low on the ground making it less of an eyesore in your lawn or garden.

Micro drip irrigation is just one of many methods utilized in the competitive landscaping market. With the many benefits drip irrigation provides and the reoccurring issue of water conservation, micro drip irrigation has become and will become a trend to follow in the landscaping industry. As consumers and landscapers alike become more educated about the process and advantages of micro drip irrigation, the environment and the world in which we live will become a better watering hole.
