Have you ever seen sprinklers and other water dispersing systems installed around a front or backyard? These are just a few examples of landscape irrigation system to disperse water on and around their yards, mainly for the purpose of keeping shrubbery, grass and flowers green and healthy.
A landscape irrigation system is basically a water dispersing system that ensures water is distributed regularly and evenly throughout lawns gardens and custom landscapes. Various irrigation system types are used based on factors like lawn size, geographic location, environmental regulations and underground utilities.The type of plant life involved such as trees, vegetables, flowers and even the type of grass will also influence the type of irrigation system that is required.
Micro-irrigation systems disperse water directly to plant roots, typically using as much water as needed to satiate the plants.This method utilizes a network of pipes, valves, tubing and emitters to allow water to drip slowly to the roots of plants.This system is usually best for watering smaller fruit trees, shrubs and ground cover rather than lawns and other forms of turf.
Flood System irrigation system floods the entire ground instead of spraying greenery. It comes in the form of a bed sprayer, bubbler or a jet system.The flood irrigation system isn't suitable for plants like fruit trees, ground covers or flowers, since they're prone to attracting mold and disease if over-watered.Environments with adobe or clay soil thrive under a flood irrigation system.
The rotary sprinkler consists of a rotary spray head that rotates in a circular pattern.As it rotates, it sprays as much as 100 feet(30.5 meters) across an area.Turfs and landscapes benefit the most from this water irrigation system.High water pressure is required to make this system work well.
Spray irrigation is probably the most commonly used landscape irrigation system. It's essentially an adjustable, traditional sprinkler that sprays water over a single area. Many sprinklers cover as much as 15 feet (4.6 meters), so they're best in smaller areas with a consistent shape. They also work well under lower water pressure.
