Throughout the summer months in Kansas, it can be difficult to keep your flower beds and vegetable gardens adequately watered due to the extreme heat and humid conditions we experience. By running drip irrigation throughout your beds, you can keep your plants watered, and keep evaporation at a minimum, without the work of dragging the hose around your yard.
Drip irrigation consists of plastic tubing and tiny sprinklers or drippers, which are placed at the base of each plant. The sprinklers can be spaced between plants to water multiple plants. There are different types of sprayers to meet the needs of different plant types. Trees and shrubs will need something more than an annual or vegetable plant. Once you've laid the tubing and attached the proper sprayers, all you need to do is attach a hose, and your plants will be thanking you in no time. Not only does a drip irrigation system save you time watering, but also saves you money. When watering with drip, you will not need to use full force of the hose, even turning it on half-way will suffice. This way you can get a good soak down to the roots of all your plants.
