Ever wondered if there was a way to water your flower bed or garden without having to use a traditional sprinkler? Spray and pop-up nozzles are great for watering your lawn or other large area, but not as efficient when it comes to watering plants placed close together.
A spray nozzle might be able to reach your garden, but it will only water the leaves and visible parts of your plants (and, let's face it, it'll probably water your house or sidewalk in the process). However, plants require water not at the leaves, but at the roots in order to thrive. And this is where a drip line truly begins to shine.
Drip irrigation systems are a great way to save on water costs and usage, but they work best for certain situations. A drip line is great for small areas that are densely covered with plants (as opposed to large lawn areas). If you have a garden, raised flower bed, large bushes, or small trees, a drip line will allow you to water straight at the roots. This eliminates evaporation concerns and, when set to a timer or smart controller, you can “set it and forget it.”
