Water Restrictions and the Benefits of Using a Drip Irrigation System on Your Dallas Landscapes

An Introduction to Irrigation

If you’re a resident of Texas, chances are you’ve encountered water restrictions before, especially in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Unfortunately, these restrictions can have a negative impact on your Dallas landscapes unless you have a drip irrigation system. What is a drip irrigation system? Allow us to explain.

Drip Irrigation Systems

Drip irrigation, also known as trickle irrigation, micro irrigation, or localized irrigation is an irrigation method that saves water and fertilizer by allowing water to drip slowly and directly into the roots of the plant rather than on top of the soil surface. These systems also:

  • Improve the growth of plants because a smaller amount of water over a longer period of time promotes growth more effectively than a large amount over a shorter period of time
  • Hinder the growth of weeds because water is going directly into roots of plants and nowhere else
  • Discourage the growth of fungal diseases because wet foliage can facilitate the spread of these diseases
  • Conserve your time, energy and effort because you don’t have to constantly move sprinklers each time you want to water a different area of your landscape

In addition, utilizing this system means your landscape will get the necessary water it needs, while meeting your district’s water restriction ordinances. After an irrigation system is installed, you must keep its’ maintenance up to code. Keane Landscaping doesn’t just install irrigation systems for your Dallas landscapes, but we also perform irrigation check-ups as well.

I Spy an Irrigation Irregularity

Have you noticed potential leaks in your irrigation system, or perhaps the water pressure is higher or lower than usual? If you believe your irrigation system is experiencing an irregularity, then it may be time for an irrigation check-up. These check-ups are vital to maintaining the long-term longevity of your system, meeting those water restriction ordinances and detecting possible equipment upgrades.
