A common question asked regarding irrigation techniques is "what is the best type of irrigation system for my yard?" It is important to use irrigation water wisely and efficiently. Depending on the type of vegetation and specific micro climate within your landscape, a few different types of irrigation are recommended. Here are some common irrigation methods for general watering zones and climates.

Drip irrigation

Drip irrigation systems save water because they deliver a slow, steady amount of water directly to plants’ roots. As a result, drip systems cut down on evaporation, run off and over spray. Zoning is a concept used in xeriscape design, which by grouping plants with similar water needs together in specific zones, your landscape can use water more efficiently. Let Green Thumb design a water wise system for your yard.

Why spend the time and trouble on manual watering when you can have it done hassle-free with an automatic sprinkler system. The automatic timer never lets the landscape go a day without the proper amount of water and never floods it as we all have done by forgetting to turn the water off. Let the professionals at Green Thumb design a sprinkler system that will work best for your lawn and garden.

Arid Zones

Drip irrigation is ideal for the driest types of landscape. This form of irrigation is best suited for Xeriscape plants and perennials. A drip system saves water because very little is lost to evaporation or run off. By delivering water slowly and directly to a plant’s root zone, drip irrigation promotes healthy plant growth. Fifty percent or more water can be saved by using drip irrigation when compared to traditional sprinkling.

Transition Zones

Spitters, a type of in-ground sprinkler, is an efficient choice for moderate water use. Flowers, perennials and some shrubs highly benefit from this type of sprinkler system. Small areas of ground cover can also be efficiently watered using this system.

Oasis Zones

Sprinklers can also be an efficient way to irrigate some densely planted xeriscape flowers and ground covers. Use low spray angle heads on lawns and low ground covers to reduce water loss due to wind.
