Most people think that irrigation is an unnecessary expense, but this is far from the truth. Irrigation systems are both necessary and affordable and for persons with just a few plants scattered around the yard, it is.
However here are a few points for garden owners to consider.
- Irrigation can free up up to 5 hrs of your time a week
- Simply set your timers to the intervals you want, and the wetting is done for you. You may extend wetting periods in the dry seasons to combat the dry scorching conditions.
- Benefit from the convenience of a basic system for a few hundred dollars. Once the initial investment is made the returns are lasting.
Every irrigation system should be equipped with a rain censor. This device, once hooked up to an irrigation system sends a shut off signal to the timer when the rain falls. This feature is very useful and it can save a lot of time and money.
