Irrigation is an important component of planning your
landscape. That is because it plays a crucial role in the
overall function of your landscape.
Irrigation brings water to your plants and without it, your
plants will die and the time and energy you invested on
building your landscape will be put to waste.
There are several considerations when irrigating your
landscape. Below is a list of some of them.
1. Find a water source that’s efficient as possible.
Regardless of the size of your lawn, you will need to water
it regularly in order for the plants to survive.
You must therefore find a cost-efficient way to do it. You
don’t even have to use sprinklers all the time. What you
can do, for example, is direct rain water from your roof to
2. Check your equipment for damage. If the pieces of
equipment that you use for irrigation is defective, you
waste water and money for something that cannot do its job
So regularly check your hoses, sprinklers and other water
equipment for damage because you can save a lot of money by
doing this. As a rule of thumb, immediately change whatever
broken equipment that you have in your garden.
3. Do your watering early in the day – this method is
another cost-saver because by watering your plants early in
the day, the water doesn’t evaporate easily. This ensures
you that you are using your resources well and that nothing
goes to waste.
