IRRIGATION


Irrigation is basically determined by the landscaping needs, water composition, water needs, different plants, watering zones, ground characteristics such as slopes, soil compositions, etc.

Among the options available, time-based automatic irrigation is widely used, they are practical and takes a major part of worrying while guaranteeing that irrigating your garden will not be missed.


Sprinklers

Water is piped to one or more central locations within the field and distributed by overhead high-pressure sprinklers or guns.

A system utilizing sprinklers, sprays, or guns mounted overhead on permanently installed risers is often referred to as a solid-set irrigation system.

Higher pressure sprinklers that rotate are called rotors and are driven by a ball drive, gear drive, or impact mechanism.

Spray Irrigation is the most common type of landscape irrigation system using traditional sprinkler heads. Officially known as spray irrigation, these systems tend to work best in small, regular-shaped landscape areas.

Sprinklers don’t require a lot of maintenance, except where the water supply is heavily mineralized. In these cases, plan to budget for periodic replacement of sprinkler heads and other irrigation system components.



Low Flow Irrigation

Low-flow irrigation systems, also called low volume irrigation or micro-irrigation, is an irrigation method that uses a lower water pressure than standard irrigation systems, resulting in a "low-flow" delivery of water. It saves water and it contributes to directing the water where it is most needed.


Drip Irrigation

It is one of the most effective ways to save water and control weeds while saving in costs!

There is a very wide variety of applications, and a most important advantage is that you water only the plants that you have to, preventing watering weed areas. Therefore, by no watering weeds you help with weed control while saving water.

Drip irrigation, spray or micro-sprinkler irrigation, as well as bubbler irrigation are localized irrigation methods.
