Drip irrigation is something that our Baytown irrigation installation team is extremely excited about. We've used drip lines to cut our clients watering bills significantly while giving them larger flowers, stronger shrubs and gorgeous trees. Here's how it works:
We come in and do a full water coverage audit on your yard (commercial or business). Once we have determined the watering needs of every zone of your lawn, we then design a drip system to handle all of the bed plantings that you have. That includes your foundation plantings, flower and vegetable gardens, and any and all trees and shrubs. We redirect your current spray heads to cover the grass areas of the lawn and install the drip lines.
The drip lines do several things better than a standard spray head. First, they deliver water right to the root systems of the targeted plants. This helps develop a deeper root system. This deep root system allows the plants to reach nutrients that have been locked in the soil for years. Plants with these root systems grow larger and stronger than they otherwise would. They produce deeper foliage and bigger, brighter flowers.
Drip lines also reduce the amount of water used for irrigation. Water is targeted to each individual plant so it only gets what it needs and nothing more. There is no overspray from nozzles or rotary sprinklers. No excess water means no weed growth. There is also no loss of water to evaporation.
Drip irrigation doesn't cost any more than standard irrigation to set up. Sometimes it costs even less. The lines themselves are relatively inexpensive and the drip heads are comparable to pop up heads. The only real cost there is is setting up another run on an existing system and programming it into the controller.
Call us to get an estimate on a new drip irrigation system for your landscape. It can cut your watering costs significantly. We can do a quick sketch on site and see if you are interested. Then, if you would like, we can schedule a full mock up and estimate.
