Many people think of set and forget lawn and gardening systems as being very expensive and wasteful of water. This is true all too often, when the system has not been properly tailored to suit the garden and lawn layout, the plant species present, the climate, and the soil type. Fortunately, the irrigation equipment which is available nowadays is very sophisticated, and it’s possible to solve all of the problems which lead to over watering.

Designing an efficient watering system for your garden and lawn.

It’s very important to choose the right kind of irrigation equipment to suit your garden. You’ll find a wealth of information online, and good gardening equipment suppliers will provide a consultancy service to help you make the right choices.

Sophisticated controller systems which include sensors can be adjusted according to the time of year, and will not turn the sprinklers on if watering is not required.

There are several types of sprinklers, each designed for a specific purpose. The rotor head covers a wide area very evenly, and there is a high impact type which is ideal for low water pressure areas. Spray heads are very useful for covering a small garden bed or lawn area. Drip irrigation systems deliver water directly to the base of particular plants.

Self watering planters are a very water efficient, time saving idea. A cleverly designed system ensures exactly the right amount of water is delivered to the plant’s root system when it’s needed.
