What Is Micro-Drip Irrigation?

Micro-drip irrigation is flexible, conserves water, and saves you time and money.

If you don’t have a yard or lawn but still love planting and gardening, you probably have a planter, window box, or rooftop garden that you hand water. While it’s true that hand-watering is easier when you don’t have a huge lawn to take care of, it can still be a pain to remember to water every plant. Also, you may have a challenging schedule and aren’t available during peak watering times. If this sounds familiar to you, you should look into installing a micro-drip irrigation system with Aqua Bright.

Conserves Water

Micro-drip irrigation, or low-volume irrigation, delivers water directly to the roots of your plants. While a typical drip system uses many parts, a micro-drip irrigation system provides the most value, including water savings and better control of the system. Once the drip emitter starts to water plants, specific amounts of water are applied to the roots, so they are never over-watered or under-watered. The water-conserving irrigation is perfect for flowers or vegetables on your balcony, patio, or window boxes around your home.

Saves Time and Money

In addition to saving water, you will also be saving a lot of time. Instead of refilling a watering can and lugging it around to every plant around your home and patio, the irrigation system does it all for you.

Since micro-drip irrigation systems use much less water than typical irrigation systems, you will see considerable savings on your next water bill. Also, with the right micro-drip irrigation system in place, you will save money on the overall maintenance cost of keeping your plants and vegetables healthy all year round.

Flexible System

Another benefit of micro-drip irrigation systems is the flexibility of the tubes. They are easily bendable and can be shaped into many different molds and directions to best fit your plants while still efficiently proving water to their roots. Also, the system lays low on the ground, so it blends it seamlessly with your plants. At Aqua-Bright, we install micro-drip irrigation systems that are barely visible and operate with the same timers and rain sensors that our big irrigation systems have.
