How to Make a Garden Irrigation System

Keeping your plants well watered and cared for is time-consuming, and you may not have a lot of time for the task every day. However, a good irrigation system will help your plants and crops grow better and produce impressive results. The main problem with taking care of your garden is being consistent, as many everyday tasks can get in the way. A garden watering system is the perfect solution to this problem and will make your life much easier. Besides, this system is easy to integrate without much effort.

Types of Garden Irrigation Systems

A healthy flow of water is very important for the growth of your plants. Therefore, there are three types of irrigation systems that provide the appropriate and necessary water flow depending on the needs of the plants.

Surface Irrigation

Surface irrigation uses gravity to distribute water over the surface. You can either fill the entire garden with water like a basin or supply water to the plants through small channels.

Sprinkler Irrigation

Sprinkler irrigation is similar to natural rainfall. Here, water is pumped through a pipe and then sprayed over the plants with sprinkler heads.

Drip Irrigation

In this method, pressurized water is directed to the fields or garden where it slowly drips onto the ground using drippers located near the plants. This method allows you to water only the root of each plant, which is very efficient.

Steps to Create Your Own Irrigation System

If you are wondering how to put the idea of a simple irrigation system into practice, then there are some simple steps that will help you build the system professionally. However, if you need a professional’s help, we can certainly help you install your system.

  1. Hoses are essential to get started because they regulate flow and prevent pressure. So, find the hoses and place them around the plants.
  2. Attach the cap to the end of the tubing and start drilling the small holes in the desired locations from one side.
  3. Attach the backflow preventer to the faucet to prevent water from flowing back into the water supply.
  4. Connect the hose to the faucet to test that the system is working properly and that you are getting the desired pressure from each hole. Then make any necessary adjustments as needed.
  5. There are several hose timers available on the market, and you can choose the appropriate option depending on your needs. Install the timer and reconnect the hose to the timer unit.

Advantages of A Garden Watering System

An efficient garden irrigation system offers you many benefits, including the following.

  1. Watering each plant in the garden individually is a tedious process, and the irrigation system will save you a lot of time. When you use the system with modern technology, it knows when and where how much water is needed and works accordingly.
  2. The system saves you from wasting water, as it provides the water you need according to the needs of the garden.
  3. The right garden watering system adds value to your home and also saves you money on extra water bills.
  4. Too much water can destroy a lot of extra vital nutrients in the soil that are important for your plants to grow. With the right system, the nutrients in the soil are also preserved.
  5. The irrigation system adds to the esthetics and beauty of your home by providing you with a healthy and green garden.

Very honest and professional service at a great price. Matt and the team were called to fix another plumbers dodgy (& expensive) job and completed on time with minimal fuss. Would definitely go directly to Matt first and would recommend others to do too – you wont be disappointed!

Friendly, honest and absolutely a pleasure to deal with. We had a leak in the ceiling from a bathroom upstairs and we received great advice and service. The team knew exactly what the issue was and was able to sort us out quickly. I highly recommend Royal Flush Plumbing and will use them again. Thanks!

I had issues with my toilet drain blocking up at my place of business, Royal Flush came out and saved the day on a Sunday morning before an event I had planned Later on in the evening. I had a chat to Matt about renovating the toilet and adding on an additional toilet and a new shower/bathroom and to my amazement he made this happen and I couldn’t be happier. Royal Flush, nit only provided the plumbing removal and install of this little project….
