What are lawn Irrigation Systems
Irrigation systems for lawns are great. They will
water your lawn while you are away from your home
and for larger lawns are a really useful time saver.
But they are not foolproof.

Lawn Irrigation systems fall into two main types.

Type 1  Lawn Irrigation System
is the drip irrigation system, favoured by DIY enthusiasts and people on low budgets. They are great, cheap to assemble and install and can be got working in an afternoon.

Type 2 Lawn Irrigation System
The second type is Spay irrigation, where the water is pumped through pipes underground to water jets, which spray the water over the lawn.

The first system of lawn Irrigation is the cheapest and the second lawn system is the most expensive but the more effective.
Lawn Irrigation Systems Drawbacks
Both lawn systems have inherent drawbacks.

The drip system, although cheap to install and not dependent on water pressure, is very inefficient and wasteful of water.

This is because most of the water dripped onto the surface of the soil, actually evaporates before it reaches the roots of the plants and it is not very practical for lawns.

The lawn Spray irrigation system is also wasteful because a high percentage of the
water evaporates as it is traveling through the air. Lawn Spray systems are also susceptible to changes in water pressure and blocked or silted up nozzles need regular maintenance.

So to summarise at this point about Lawn Irrigation Systems….
You are contemplating watering your lawn or flower border by delivering water to the surface of the soil and expecting what does not evaporate to percolate down to the roots.

This is extremely wasteful of water. Why not deliver the water directly to the roots of the plants?
