The typical spray system puts water on driveways, walks, has double or triple coverage areas, and they dump so much water in such a short period of time that run-off is inevitable.

The best of the garden irrigation systems is the drip system. Drip irrigation systems put metered amounts of water where you want it.Irrigation2 How to Install a Garden Irrigation System is applied slowly, it penetrates the soil instead of running off as is common in lawn sprays.

A properly designed drip irrigation system will save you up to 80% of the water you currently us in your garden and will improve the quality of the garden in the process.

Common spray system lose water to the wind, and the splashing water also promotes and spreads common garden diseases. Water, sprayed repeatedly on the base of plants or trunk of a tree, will actually damage the bark and allow pests and diseases an easy path into the plant’s tissue. Healthy, properly watered plants are not as attractive to insects as those under stress.

Using less water also means that you do not leach all the nutrients from the soil, and your will need to apply less fertilizer. Depending on where you live in the country, you may be able to grow legumes (peas, beans, clover) as cover or winter ‘green manure’ crops, and these will provide the nitrogen your soil needs.

In the drier parts of California, there are plenty of minerals, and nitrogen is the only nutrient that needs to be replaced. Since nitrogen is so soluble, it will leach out of the root zone very easily – drip irrigation keeps it where you need it.

  • Avatar cheshiremum How much do garden designers charge?
    May 22, 2008 by cheshiremum | Posted in Garden & Landscape

    We live on a modern housing estate - normal sized garden. Any idea how much a garden designer/landscaper usually charges for re-planning garden? Thanks.

    • Depends on what you want. If you want a large firm to handle the design and landscaping, or an "handyman". Depends on whether you want just a design and you do the landscaping or if you want them to do the hard …. That way you could save money by designing it yourself and then just getting someone to do the physical work for you. You could even try the BBC website which as a flash software downloadable package for garden design.
