15 May Finding the Right Irrigation Systems for Your Landscape
Irrigation is an essential element of a desert landscape and it helps you ensure that your plants get the proper amount of water. Use this guide to figure out the right way to irrigate your landscape to keep it looking its best:
In Southern AZ, most landscaping is installed using drip irrigation. Drip irrigation is a cost-effective way to water your plants to keep them looking healthy. Consider using multiple zones (values) to allow specific watering schedules for specific plants; (trees, shrubs, containers and citrus). Planning is the key for an efficient system.
If you prefer a more eco-friendly method of irrigating your hard, you might want to consider rain harvesting. You can use rain barrels or cisterns on your property to hold onto rainwater. If you can use at least a little bit of this water, it reduces the cost of your water expenses and helps the environment. If you want to try to use rain harvesting, you should talk to your landscaping company about it before they complete the design so they can fit into the plans.
You can take a more hands-on approach to your yard with a simple garden hose. Using a hose gives you complete control over the way you water your plants so you can ensure that your landscaping gets the hydration it needs.
