SUBSURFACE DRIP IRRIGATION FOR LAWNS

At present the method of subsurface drip irrigation has been widely adopted. The principle of operating of this system is the following: the pressured water runs through the deep earth layers and thus reaching directly the root system of the plants. The underground drip irrigation also allows applying liquid fertilizers. This method of irrigation improves the aeration of soil and favors good root nutrition and consequently the development of plants. Underground drip lines are one of the best options for lawn areas that are difficult to irrigate abundantly. Such lawns may include narrow strips of grass or other plants, they may be situated on the undulating ground or just be of unusual shape. The other advantage of the irrigation system in question is the water saving as it is not wasted aimlessly during the process of evaporation or overwatering. In the issue weeds disappear from your lawn and turf diseases are significantly reduced.

However it should be noted that underground drip system will not do for every lawn, especially if we take into consideration areas with deep and vast tree-root systems. The same can be said about lawns where moles or gophers are encountered. The given drip system consists of an emitter line processed with herbicide. The herbicide treatment does not let roots growing into the conduit. The emitter line is laid approximately half a foot lower the soil. It is recommended to arrange the surface drip system before creating a new lawn. However if you decided to install the system on your existing lawn, it should be admitted, that in this case this problem can be solved, as you can dig ditches.

While choosing the right place for the emitter line, take into account the type of the soil and incline of the lawn. If the soil is sandy, choose lines with emitters that are placed every foot. Place the lines approximately a foot apart. If the soil is clay, give preference to lines with fewer emitters. In this case place the lines approximately 18 inches apart. If your lawn is situated on slopes, take into consideration that water will run downhill. So space the lines closer to one another at the top of the hill and then apart as you reach the bottom of slopes.
