Drip Irrigation System in Anne Arundel County
Drip Line Irrigation Services
You have a few different choices when it comes to your garden or landscaping watering methods. You can water manually with a garden hose or watering can, use a sprinkler, or install drip irrigation. Drip irrigation systems are very convenient if you have a large lawn or garden, and they can save you time, money, and effort. Drip irrigation systems ensure the entire lawn or garden is watered efficiently and that it gets enough water throughout the day to stay healthy. At Arundel Irrigation, we have been providing drip irrigation systems in Anne Arundel County since 1990. We have extensive experience working with residential and commercial clients, and in addition to installing drip irrigation systems, we also offer maintenance and repair services.
How Drip Irrigation Systems Work
Drip line irrigation is a landscape irrigation method that uses small, thin hoses to distribute water evenly throughout a lawn, garden, or landscape design. The hoses are installed in a specific pattern according to watering zones or how much water each area needs to get each day. They are set on a timer that can be changed seasonally or as the weather changes. Drip irrigation system hoses release water slowly at key parts of the day so that you conserve water and makes watering more efficient and effective. Our experienced landscape contractors can install all four main drip irrigation systems: soaker hoses, drip tape, emitter systems, and micro-misting systems.
Benefits of Installing Drip Irrigation
If you have a large lawn, a front and back lawn, a lawn and garden, or landscaping with many different types of plants, a drip irrigation system will save you time, money, and effort. You won’t need to water multiple times per day or keep moving your hose or sprinkler system around your yard. You also won’t waste as much water. Our landscape contractors will evaluate the size of your yard or landscaped area, the types of plants, how much sun they get each day, and their specific watering needs. We will then design or map out the location for your drip line irrigation system to optimize the watering process and make sure each area gets the water it needs each day without any water waste. The biggest benefits of installing a residential or commercial irrigation system are:
- Customized watering solutions for different crops, plants, or landscaped areas.
- Drip irrigation systems are more sustainable and eco-friendly.
- Conserve water and lower your water bills.
- Won’t need to spend time and energy watering huge areas.
- Lawn, garden, and landscaping will get the water it needs, when it needs it.
- Drip irrigation system timers and schedules can be customized as the seasons and weather change.
- The drip irrigation system can be adjusted if you add new plants to your landscaped area.
- Reduce the risk of diseases like fungus by reducing the amount of water on the leaves and stems of plants.
- Reduces water runoff and soil erosion from overwatering.
- Keeps the ground between plants dry so there is a lower chance of weeds, crabgrass, and dandelions.
- Improves the appearance of your home or business.
How We Install Drip Irrigation Systems
Before we install a commercial or residential drip irrigation system, we will conduct a site visit. We will need to evaluate the size of your home or business’ landscaped area and the types of plants that need watering. We will also discuss with you the different types of drip irrigation systems we install so that you can determine which one is best for your needs. We will factor in the slope of the landscaped area, how much sun it gets, how often it needs to be watered, watering costs, and more. We will then draw up a plan or design for your drip irrigation system and obtain all necessary permits for trenching and installation. Our team of experienced landscaping contractors is fully licensed and insured. Depending on the type of system you choose, we may need to install a water pump. After mapping out the watering zones, we will install the hoses and emitters or sprinklers in key areas and install and set up timers for automation. We will then test the system and provide instruction and education on operation and maintenance.
Drip Irrigation System Maintenance
Keeping up with drip irrigation system maintenance will extend the lifespan of your system and reduce the risk of needing repairs. We recommend that you walk around your landscaped area regularly to check for signs of damage or malfunction. If you see any problems, you can call our team for maintenance and repairs. We can also assist with winterizing your irrigation system and protecting it from freezing during the winter. Generally, your irrigation system should last 5-10 years before parts need to be replaced.
