One of the biggest challenges of landscaping is ensuring that proper levels of irrigation are provided to every inch of the landscape.
Because of this, the team at Rosehill Gardens takes great care when our clients contact us requesting irrigation system design.
Depending on the landscape, proper irrigation might require a combination of irrigation systems. Among these, drip irrigation is ideal for flower beds, gardens, and other areas where you want to target individual plants without watering the mulch, rocks, and other landscaping materials surrounding it that don’t require water.
Drip irrigation systems deliver water directly to the root system. This cuts down waste, reduces evaporation, and virtually eliminates any runoff that might occur. This makes drip irrigation system design eco-friendly and incredibly cost-efficient.
Another option to consider is to use soaker hoses. Openings cut into the hose at the appropriate places allow water to drip water exactly where you want it. Lengths vary, but these types of systems can be used for short runs or runs up to about 200 feet over flat surfaces. This gives landscapers considerable flexibility regarding installation and positioning.
Soaker hoses are more temporary in nature, and they are less efficient than drip irrigation systems. However, since they require less planning to install, they are easier to set up.
Once in place, they can be adjusted and moved around as the conditions within your landscape change and evolve. Thus, if you are still in the process of finalizing your landscape design, they are an ideal option to consider.
Our experts are available to assist you in planning out the best irrigation system to ensure your residential or commercial landscaping receives just the right amount of water this winter. Contact Rosehill Gardens at 816-941-4777 for more information today.
