Larger yards take a lot of time to water by hand, especially if you grow fruits and vegetables. Depending on the plants you grow, they may need watering twice a week during the summer. Installing an irrigation system may seem like a costly endeavor, including the labor involved, but sprinkler or drip configurations have several advantages.

Prevents Disease and Weeds

Specialized drip irrigation systems direct water specifically to each plant’s rootball, rather than sprinkling the entire garden like a typical rainstorm. As a result, surrounding weed seeds cannot germinate, so you’ll have less weeding to do. Water at the roots also prevents leaf diseases caused by standing droplets on the foliage. Because the water does not strike the leaves or flowers, blight diseases have no chance of proliferating.

Conserves Water and Time

Hand watering with a hose or watering can take substantial time and early morning and evening watering rituals take away from family and work. Both drip and sprinkler irrigation systems have timers that can be preset for daily or weekly watering so you do not need to monitor the watering because the timer shuts the water off when it has finished. Your water bill should be lower if the irrigation system is effective.

Preserves Soil Structure and Nutrients

Watering with a wide open garden hose may allow too much water to seep into the soil. As a result, nutrients leach out with the water runoff, leaving the plants with fewer nutrients available. The soil may also become compacted when you water with a hose. Plants may show signs of withering or root disease with suffocating, compacted soil. Using either drip or sprinkler irrigation produces smaller droplets, helping to preserve nutrients and reducing soil compaction.
