Mandating drip irrigation
Customers can enjoy their green and healthy landscapes while avoiding water bill sticker shock.
Drip systems are also flexible and can be easily adapted to accommodate changes in the landscape.
Water is seeped slowly at or near plant root zones. By contrast, flow rates from traditional overhead irrigation sprays and rotors are always measured in gallons per minute (gpm). Micro sprinklers, micro sprays and micro bubblers, connected by flexible tubing staked above ground, are also part of low-volume irrigation.
These are usually used for denser groups of plants, such as shrub beds.
Drip irrigation systems apply water at low pressure and low volume directly to or near the root zone of plants.
