Drip Irrigation – Lee Engineering Company
For homeowners in North Texas, maintaining healthy, beautiful landscapes can be challenging, especially with seasonal droughts and local water restrictions. The most efficient way to offset Texas’ problematic clay soil is by installing a professionally designed drip irrigation system.
What is drip irrigation?
Drip irrigation, also known as micro-irrigation, uses dripline and pressure regulating emitters to apply moisture directly to a plant’s root system. Drip irrigation provides precise and efficient irrigation and eliminates water waste due to evaporation and runoff.
“About 30-40% of water emitted through a traditional sprinkler head is eliminated through evaporation.”
Drip Irrigation Conserves Water
In Texas, irrigation water waste is typically higher during the scorching hot summer months, and especially on windy days. A properly installed drip irrigation system ensures that more than 90% of the water applied is deposited directly into the soil, eliminating waste and reducing your monthly irrigation water usage.
