As we begin to move closer to the summer months, many areas of the country will have to deal with water rationing. A great alternative to using gallons of water to soak your lawn and garden is to put in an inexpensive drip irrigation system.
There are several good starter kits on the market that are very DIY-friendly, and one of the most cost-effective watering solutions you can use. Drip irrigation minimizes water use to a fraction of normal watering by delivering water directly to the roots of your plants in very slow drips or with micro-spray heads.
It’s perfect for gardens, flowerbeds, and even hanging plants. You can even combine drip irrigation with harvested rainwater. And the benefits are healthy plants and hundreds of gallons of water saved every year.
