Home Irrigation Systems a Smart Choice with Limited Summer Water Supplies

Water matters to everyone. We need to be smart about using water sustainably, especially in summer when supplies can be limited.

Auckland can receive a lot of summer rainfall, leading gardeners to think they don’t need to worry about conserving water. In fact the opposite can be true. By conserving water when it’s plentiful you can help reduce or delay restrictions once the dry weather actually arrives.

Auckland gardeners who want to use water wisely in the garden should consider installing a home irrigation system. Smart watering is all about knowing how much your garden needs, when and where it needs water and what you can do to retain moisture in your soil.

That’s the benefit of automatic irrigation systems – they give you that high level of control over the amount of water you use, allowing for the proper amount of water to be distributed to the plants as they need it.

Automated irrigation using timing devices mean you can control the frequency and length of time the system runs. You can also use smart shut-off devices like rain or soil moisture sensors to ensure your automatic irrigation system doesn’t run when it’s not needed and save even more of that precious water this summer.

Irrigation Provides Greater Reliability

Using automated irrigation systems has many positive effects – for you, your garden, and as a  way of saving water. Irrigation systems make distributing water to your gardens easier and more reliable because they meter water volumes more precisely.

Irrigation can be set up to automatically deliver the right amount of water to the right plants when they need it, stopping and starting exactly as required. You no longer have to do it all manually.

When irrigation is set up with timing systems it is easy to operate it at night, minimising water loss from evaporation. You can also rely on an automated irrigation system to continue watering when you’re spending time away from home.

Irrigation comes into its own when it’s properly installed to distribute water to the garden and lawn in different zones. Each zone includes plants with similar water needs allowing for a very efficient reliable irrigation process.
