In this article, we will look at various types of irrigation systems, starting with some of the oldest and simplest ones, which will lead to an understanding of the more complex systems in operation today. But, first, let’s take a closer look at what plants need in order to grow well.
Plants grow in many different places-from plain old soil to richly fertilized soil. A division of horticulture known as hydroponics also uses specially prepared solutions of mineral salts as a growing plant field. Anyway, as long as there is a place to lay down roots and a large amount of the right nutrients, the plant will do its best to thrive.
After planting a seed, just the right temperature is required to germinate and begin to grow. Many seeds need to germinate at warmer temperatures than others. By relying on our experience of seasonal temperatures, it is easier to know when to plant what. Then, if Mother Nature doesn’t like it, you can always use greenhouses and other artificial structures to get the temperature right.
Air and Light
Plants make their own food by using a process called photosynthesis. During photosynthesis, the chlorophyll-containing green parts of the plant trap light energy and are used to perform a series of chemical reactions. This process involves carbon dioxide.
Water is important for plants. It brings essential nutrients from the soil and is an effective mechanism for germination and photosynthesis. Plants simply won’t grow without water.
Waterworks Irrigation systems are providing water. When it comes to watering plants in our yards or gardens, most of us don’t always like to depend on whether— we can use watering cans or sprinkler systems. This is the simplest form of irrigation. And while this is all right for the home gardener, when you’re a farmer trying to water the whole field, these approaches become impractical. So, how about the flood of the field? It sounds dramatic, but the ancient Egyptians used the technique extensively. Although the basin method is still prevalent, more advanced irrigation methods are in use today: surface irrigation, such as border irrigation, furrow irrigation and other types of irrigation that use floods.

New Sprinkler System
We will suggest a comprehensive plan for effective irrigation of your lawn and landscape. Starting with a new sprinkler system, we can integrate several variables that previous irrigation systems do not have without a major overhaul. When working with you on this proposal, we will suggest and explore the value of hydro-zoning. Hydro zoning is the application to establish similar waterworks requirements for irrigation zones throughout the region. For example, we want to keep the plants separate from the turf because they require different amounts of water. Another way would be to distinguish the full areas of the sun from the areas of the shade where appropriate. Such design features will result in less water consumption and better results for your lawn and garden if properly designed from the outset.
Other factors that we consider when installing a new sprinkler system are the types of sprinkler heads that are needed. We want to make sure that sprinkler heads share a similar or identical distribution rate across the land. Many times you see systems with a spray head and a rotor head on the same location, we’re never going to do that. In addition to the sprinkler heads, our product of choice is the Matched Precipitation Rotators by Hunter Industries. These sprinkler heads can gradually deliver water to the landscape and the grass, allowing every soil and plant form to collect water.
We are fully licensed throughout the state to restore and install new irrigation systems. We follow both local and state regulations to build your new system. Some of the items that are compulsory throughout the entire state are, installing a proper back-flow system, cutting off rain, and ensuring that all heads are 12 inches away from the house structure. These are just a handful of rules, and we are able to operate by the current regulations and give you a great irrigation system that will deliver results.
