The Many Advantages of Drip Irrigation Systems

Irrigation systems are an important investment for Houston property owners, particularly commercial property owners. An irrigation system can help property owners keep lawns, plants and trees healthy and hydrated regardless of the season or weather conditions. This is especially helpful during the brutal Houston summer heat and humidity. A drip irrigation system is a method that drips water slowly and directly to the roots of plants or trees through the use of narrow tubes or pipes. Drip irrigation systems offer several key advantages to property owners in need of automated, consistent watering.

Significant Reduction In Water and Landscape Costs

One of the biggest advantages to having professionally-installed drip irrigation systems on commercial properties comes from the immediate reduction in water costs and usage. Property owners can see a great reduction in water costs since the drip irrigation applies smaller amounts of water in strategic locations. In addition, property owners can schedule the irrigation system to run during cooler times of the day, maximizing the benefit of the irrigation.  Property owners will also spend less on removing and replacing dead plants and flowers that die due to improper watering.  

Efficient Watering Means Healthier Landscapes

Drip irrigation systems offer strategic and efficient watering to plants, flowers and trees, resulting in healthier soil and root systems. Plants and trees are able to gain more nutrients from the healthier soil, and as a result, increase in strength and beauty. In addition, drip irrigation systems ensure that the plants and trees receive water where it is most needed, since some types of plants and trees need more water than others.

Drip Irrigation Protects The Environment

As the population of Houston continues to rise, there is a growing concern about water usage throughout the region, leading to a greater emphasis on water conservation. Drip irrigation solves this problem by significantly reducing water runoff or waste. In comparison, watering with garden hoses, basic sprinklers, or even outdated irrigation systems can lead to massive water waste and inefficient watering of property.
