In the desert, lush landscapes use a lot more water than native landscapes. For this reason, many residents are choosing to renovate their landscape to desert landscape with a drip irrigation watering system. Our experts at Water Wise Landscape have experience transforming existing systems into drip irrigation systems as well as installing completely new systems.
Our drip irrigation systems are plant targeted, meaning our systems are designed to individually water each plant with an emitter measuring the appropriate amount of water for each plant. This style of irrigation targets where water is needed and prevents water from reaching areas where it is unwanted. Landscapes with drip irrigation systems tend to have flourishing plants and less weeds. In addition, drip irrigation systems can be used to design hybrid landscapes made up of both desert landscape and lush green landscapes. A drip irrigation system can be custom designed so it waters green landscape more often and desert landscape as necessary.
It is common knowledge that water is scarce in desert cities. So backyard landscapes need to forego plants because it would not be sustainable due to the lack of water source. That is not the case with Water Wise Landscape. We can employ advanced drip irrigation systems that are very efficient at watering plants.
By contrast, the average sprinkle system has a water use efficiency of 75%. A drip irrigation system can exceed this with as much as 90% water efficiency. This marked difference in water delivery efficiency will make the use of plants in your backyard viable, and will also lower your water bill.
Drip Irrigation works by applying water directly and slowly to the soil. The underlying principle is that the water can be absorbed directly by the soil, and accessed faster by the plant roots. It leaves no time for the water to run off or evaporating, drastically improving the water delivery efficiency compared to conventional irrigation methods.
This efficiency is further boosted by only supplying water to areas of a landscape that need it. Water Wise Landscape also prefers drip irrigation system designs that are simple, because when there’s less moving parts, there’s less room for design errors or installation flaws. This makes our drip irrigation systems easy to maintain and not prone to failure over time.
