Change to Drip Irrigation

Upgrading your irrigation system to drip can bring water savings of 20-50% when compared to a conventional irrigation system.

Drip irrigation applies water at or near ground and directly to the roots of plants. This form of irrigation eliminates water loss caused by runoff, wind, and evaporation.

Next steps:

  • For smaller projects, visit your local hardware store to purchase a drip irrigation kit that you can install, to convert all or part of your existing sprinkler system to drip.
  • For larger projects, call a local landscaper to discuss irrigation options for your home.
