Head to Head Water Coverage

There will be areas of your garden which are known as turf; these areas require more water than other areas, so your irrigation system Cape Town will be laid out in such a way that the spray from one head crosses over to the head across from it and to the sides of it.  This way the water is overlapping and the turf is getting the extra drenching that is required to make your grass green.  Make sure that your garden irrigation system Cape Town is not providing head to head coverage in areas which are not turf!

Variety of Heads and Nozzles

Each garden irrigation system Cape Town is comprised of a variety of different heads and nozzles which are specifically designed for the area where they are needed.  Make sure that your heads are pointed up or down slightly for slopes so that the water is distributed evenly and correctly instead of just spraying out randomly and hoping that the irrigation Cape Town system is working.  On a regular basis you need to check your irrigation system and all the heads and nozzles to make sure that there are no blockages or leaks.

“Drip” Irrigation

There are many plants which you can have in beds that do not need a lot of water, placing similar plants together will provide you with a beautiful display of color and allow you to install a cost effective irrigation system.  A good irrigation Cape Town system includes ‘drip’ irrigation; this is where drip emitters are placed around the bed so that water is dripping into the bed.  A ‘drip’ garden irrigation system Cape Town saves you money as the amount of water used on the bed is a lot less than if you had to stand for a little while with a hose pipe and water the bed yourself.

Irrigation Controllers

There is a large variety of different controlled irrigation Cape Town systems these controllers are easily programmed and highly flexible.  Using a controlled irrigation Cape Town system means that even if you are running late in the morning your irrigation system will still switch itself on and off at a specific time.  The various controllers even allow you to have sections of your irrigation sprinkler system working while others are off, so if you have some garden sprinkler system that is close to the door or pathway to the garage you can set these to work when it’s almost certain that everyone will be away from the home or indoors, that way you do not have to worry about the water being a problem to visitors or members of the family.

Automatic Rain Shut – Off Devices

The point of an irrigation system is to water the garden, when it is raining and your controlled irrigation Cape Town system is still doing its job this is not only a huge waste of water, but it could also damage your garden, especially if some of the plants do not need lots of water, over watering can lead to killing the plants.  A good sprinkler irrigation system has an automatic rain shut – off device, this is a simple little device that shuts off the irrigation system when it is raining, saving you money on a wasted watering session as well as possibility of having to replace some of your plants.

With the right sprinkler system you can have the most beautiful garden in the neighborhood, by performing regular checks on your irrigation system you can ensure that you save money at the same time.
