20 May Irrigation for Vegetable Beds
If you’re a keen gardener you may well have an area dedicated to growing produce. If so, you’ll know that watering is key to success with a kitchen garden. It doesn’t matter whether you’re raising leafy greens, fruit crops, root vegetables or legumes. All of these need plenty of water for the best results. Do you carry heavy watering cans back and forth? Or perhaps use a hose that waters more than just the plants themselves? There’s a better solution! Dripline irrigation for vegetable beds ensures regular watering in the exact amounts needed. It also allows you to specify exactly what quantity of water to give, and when.
The results speak for themselves
There’s no argument here really. Fruit and vegetables do best when they have the right amount of water at the right time. Installing irrigation allows you to set that to suit the plants that you’re growing. We can even set up a multi-zone system which waters different beds in different ways. The plants grow better, that’s all there is to it!
Why not water manually?
We’re not suggesting that it’s impossible to water your crops manually. We’re only telling you that irrigation for vegetable beds saves you time and effort. And there are other benefits too. Although dripline looks like hose, it’s exempt from hosepipe bans as it conserves water rather than wasting it. This is because water is emitted at soil surface level, with emitters positioned close to plant roots. Not a single precious drop is wasted. And if you go on holiday, you can rely on the fact that your irrigation system is continuing to water the vegetables while you relax elsewhere.
All in all, it has to be a yes! If you’d like us to design irrigation for vegetable beds in your garden, just give us a call and we can answer any questions you might have.
