Irrigation is the method in which water is supplied to plants at regular intervals. It is used in the assistance of growing crops, the maintenance of landscapes and helping rejuvenated disturbed soil in dry areas during periods of inadequate rainfall.
Absolute Paving are here to weigh over the pros and cons of installing an irrigation system in your backyard…
Advantages of an irrigation system include a lack of necessity for special skills which are usually required to operate systems. This means that more or less anyone can use the system reasonably well without previous experience or knowledge. Plus, irrigation systems have a high efficiency due to a uniform water distribution and expansive land levelling is not required, which means that you are likely to save money in the long run. Due to this, it is said that an irrigation system is an investment for the future.
On the other hand, there is an initial high cost for installation. Other disadvantages include a high and continuous energy requirement for usage. In addition to this, under heavy wind conditions and high temperatures, the distribution and efficiency can be poor.
Despite these disadvantages, soil moisture is said to be maintained at an optimum level by sprinkler irrigation systems and 20 higher yields of crops (or grass) are obtained with the quality being significantly improved.
