An effective garden watering system enables the correct amount of water (measured in millimetres) to deep in the root zone. This will be done over multiple applications so you don’t get flooding on the surface. This encourages deeper roots and a healthy root zone/p>
Small garden watering systems can run direct off your mains water supply (typically a garden of 20m x 40m), but we would advise that you check the local water regulations. For watering systems that irrigate larger gardens, a tank and pump are normally required.
Watering systems are divided into stations (zones). The size of the station should be dictated by plant type (water requirements, size of plant & root depth), climatic conditions (sun, rain, wind etc), type of sprinklers used (application rates) and flow rates.
Watering lawn areas is normally done by pop up sprinklers. When operating, the sprinklers use water pressure to pop up through the turf and then when finished, a spring forces the sprinkler down underground. For more information click here
Watering flower beds can either be with pop-up sprinklers, micro sprinklers or drip irrigation. Each has its benefits and draw backs. The best selection is down to plant type, size and shape of beds and aesthetics. For more information click here
