A perimeter drip system is a form of irrigation you can add to your flower beds or landscaping. It is suitable for plants that need lots of water, if you have many plants you need to tend to, among other reasons. Many people wonder if the cost of having a system like this is worth it. C Greens Landscaping is here to tell you that the system pays for itself. You will not be disappointed by investing in a drip irrigation system, and here’s why.
In Dallas, TX, the soil is not great an excellent foundation for your house. You don’t want your home to be on unstable land. A perimeter drip system will rescue you from damage to your house due to foundation issues. By installing a perimeter drip system, the soil under your foundation will stay hydrated and refrain from sinking or settling.
You might feel like having a system of constant running water would be detrimental to your water bill, but it is not. For a drip system, 90% of the water emitted goes directly into the soil, leading to water preservation. Compare this to a sprinkler system where almost half the water used is evaporated. Especially in Texas, your landscaping can use all the water it can get, so a drip system puts your water to better use than other traditional watering techniques.
With sprinklers or watering with a hose, you tend to overwater and cause runoff in your yard. This creates things like mud puddles, which can be fun for kids to play in, but not fun to clean up. By minimizing the stream of water and containing it to a specific area, you will have less runoff and fewer puddles on your lawn. This is beneficial to the appearance of your landscaping as well.
Reduced Damage To Your Home
You probably do not notice the damage to your home that could be occurring because of a sprinkler system. The problem with sprinklers is they spray whatever is in their reach. You cannot control where the water goes. It is probably spraying planter boxes, the siding of your home, your shutters, etc. This causes things like rotting in wood, which can be costly to fix if not caught enough. With an irrigation system like the perimeter drip method, you do not have to worry about this at all. The water is going directly into the soil.
A perimeter drip system can seem intimidating to some, but the evidence is clear. This kind of irrigation system is probably your best bet for keeping your plants watered and conserving water.
