Are you searching for ways and ideas to enhance your curb appeal and surrounding landscape? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Drip irrigation systems are a practical and surefire way to accomplish this goal. Below are some of the many benefits of a drip irrigation system and how it can improve your home.
Save On Water Costs
While drip irrigation decreases the water you use and increases water efficiency, drip irrigation systems ensure that 95 percent of the water reaches the soil surface. When you water with overhead sprinklers during the day, you may lose 20 to 30 percent of the water you apply. If you lose that amount of your water by using a sprinkler, then that cost is spent on water that never reaches your plants. That’s not an efficient use of your water or money. Utility bill savings can quickly pay the cost of drip irrigation installation leading to a return on investment.
Prevent Erosion And Runoff Within Your Landscape
Erosion and runoff can be significant issues for many homeowners. When water isn’t absorbed into the ground and flows into a storm drain or body of water, this water often carries harmful elements such as sediment, pesticides, phosphates, and fertilizers. It then deposits them into these drains or bodies of water. Reducing erosion and runoff helps maintain the integrity of your soil and our water supply. With drip irrigation, erosion is a thing of the past.
Reduce Weed Growth
Weeds are unsightly and can, without question, harm your lawn. One way to reduce weeds is with drip irrigation. With these systems, water goes directly into the plant roots. This means there will be fewer weeds to compete for water and nutrients. Allow enough spacing between emitters or holes to match your plant spacing for optimal water efficiency.
