There are several advantages of drip irrigation over the usually used sprinkler mode of watering. For one, it is any easy addition to a garden and you can be assured that you will not only save time, but also money when installing a drip irrigation system. Also, each and every plant in the garden will get sufficient amounts of water.
The biggest advantage of drip irrigation is ensuring that those plants that need water get it directly. The water is available directly for the roots and no plant tends to get over watered. The usual irrigation system waters all plants equally without paying any attention to the needs of specific plants. However, with drip irrigation you can control this.
Another advantage of drip irrigation is that water is used efficiently. The watering line is placed directly in the root zone of the plant. This ensures that the soil under each plant is completely saturated with water. So, you can water the plant without putting water on the walkways or areas where no plants are growing. In addition, the amount of runoff is reduced, so this saves you water as well as money.
Not only is a drip irrigation system easy to install, you can also expand it whenever the need arises. You can add several emitters of different sizes giving you as many delivery options as you need.
And finally, once you have installed a drip irrigation system, you hardly need any maintenance. Of course, once in a way, you will have to clean or replace the emitter or delivery tip, but other than that the system will operate without any problems for years together.
