What Is The Best Irrigation System?

There is no single answer for this question but in general the best irrigation solution is one that has been designed especially for your site. A properly designed irrigation system will need to be designed to work with your property's natural setting.

For example very shady areas will not need as much watering as exposed full sun areas, valve zones should be designed to water each area with only what is needed. A combination of irrigation technologies should also be used to maximize efficiency and minimize waste. For areas with no turf, a drip irrigations system is better suited, uses less water and has increased plant growth but little coverage.

The best irrigation designs will incorporate both a rain sensor and a computerized controller that will be programmed to deliver water when it is needed and even adjust timing for the seasons and weather. more on irrigation systems
