How do I select the best irrigation method?

A. Hand hosing If you are using a hand held hose measuring the flow rate into the bucket using the length of hose and fittings that you normally use (this may vary from different taps). If you want, for example, to apply 10mm of water to your garden. If you put 10 liters of water over a square meter area you will deliver the equivalent of 10mm. So if you are using a hose that takes 30 seconds to provide 10 liters, you should water each square meter of garden for no more than 30 seconds (50 minutes if you have a 100 square meter garden). It should be sufficient ensuring deep watering to the root zone. Longer time might be unnecessary. Use a trigger nozzle or water wand on your hose. This allows a gentle application enables water to penetrate to the root zone. Strong stream might run off surface.

B. SPRINKLERS: Sprinkler Irrigation is a method of applying irrigation water which its effect is similar to rainfall. Water is distributed through a system of pipes, sprayed into the air and irrigated entire soil surface through spray heads. The result - small water drops fall to the ground. Sprinklers provide efficient coverage for small to large areas and are suitable for use on all property types. It should be adaptable to almost all irrigable soils because sprinklers are available in a variety of discharge capacities. In fact, sprinkler is recommended for using for lawns and small vegetable or flowerbeds. We do not recommend using sprinkler system for watering pot and balcony plants.

 C. DRIPPING IRRIGATION Drip irrigation is an irrigation method which minimizes the usage of water and fertilizer by allowing the water to drip gradually to the plant roots either to the soil surface or directly to the root zone by using network of pipes, tubing, emitters and valves. Micro Irrigation enables to irrigate plants locating at different parts through the garden- irregular shaped gardens, slopes, and more. It is decreasing leaf disease and preventing humidity near the leaves. It is recommended using the dripping system linked to a computer enabling automatic garden irrigation.

How much water?

The water amount you need to apply in your garden is linked to location, soil type, climate, wind impact, planting and scheme, rainfall and shade. Quite roughly, mixed plantings in a warm temperate climate requires approximately 10–20mmof water every 7–14 days in warmer months, and every 2 to 3 weeks in winter times.

How long should I water?

To apply the right amount of water you will need to know how long it takes to apply the desired quantity using a hand held hose, the application rate of your irrigation system and the flow rate from your tap.

How should I test water flow rate?

You could measure how long it takes to fill a 9 or 10 litter buckets or watering with the tap fully open. Assuming it may take 30 seconds to fill a 10 litter bucket or watering can = 20 litters/minute = 1200 litters/ hour. Of course, tap pressure may vary, so numbers might be different.

How does soil type affect lawn and garden irrigation?

The soil type will affect your regimen for garden irrigation, both for terms of plant health and conserving water. Sandy soil types dry out fast. Therefore, they require frequent watering comparing clayey soil types. If applying on sandy soil types too much water at once the water will percolate very fast through the porous earth – right past the root zone which will be simply useless. For sandy soil types, you shall direct the timer to release water over several short periods. Plants in clayey soil types should be watered over several short periods as well, but the reason is different. The water needs time to soak into the earth. If you water too much at once – the water simply runs off being wasted. As a result of that clayey soil types retain water quite well, you could get away with watering less frequently, lest you drown your plants’ roots. Advantages of automatic irrigation systems Automatic irrigation systems are convenient, particularly for those who travel quite frequently. If programming correctly, automatic irrigation systems shall even s-a-v-e you money while assisting in water conservation. Dead plants and lawn grass should to be replaced, which might be quite expensive. The savings from automatic irrigation could go beyond that. Automatic irrigation systems can be programmed to discharge precise amounts of water in a specific area promoting water conservation.
