We are going to take a look at the best garden watering systems for your home and Property. We’re going to look at the best ways to water the plants in the summer and even the winter. No two garden watering system are the same, and there are many cases where it makes sense to use one over the other. We will be going through all of the different variables and what you can expect from a garden watering system.
The cheapest garden watering systems available.
It almost goes without saying the cheapest garden watering methods are using a hose or simply a water butt with a watering can and rose. What’s the use in a hose in the water from your tap is actually pretty cheap, but beware; if you’ve got a water metre which most people have these days then of course is not that effective at all. The best way is to have a water butt and keep it topped up with rainwater whenever you can. This means that you can run the water around the garden with a watering can and it will give you some good exercise too.
From my perspective I really like a hose pipe because you can just simply move it around the garden and it’s relatively easy to do. But this all comes down to the fact that you might not have a water meter. Some of the luckiest people in the UK will actually have a water well. If you can get your own water from a well then of course this is going to save you a considerable amount of money, and all you need to think about is whether you have a manual method of drawing the water from the well or having a pump that will draw the water up for you.
Having a pump draw the water out will mean that you need to use electric which costa a little bit but obviously over the course of a month you might be surprised if you used even much more than a few pence of electric. After all, it’s not like you’re going to be supplying a massive farm and requiring huge amount of irrigation.
The best garden watering methods when balancing cost to performance.
Hands down the best garden watering system method is the drip irrigation. This method simply allows gravity to send water to the root of all plants. Not only did this method can serve huge amount of water, It also sends the water directly to the root of the plant which obviously means that no water is wasted whatsoever. Many plants don’t even like the leaves to be wet. So this is a huge advantage for almost all plants.
With this method being so effectively means that of course it extremely cheap to run once you’ve got the set-up done. The drawback with drip irrigation of course is the initial upfront cost. All of that plumbing actually equates to a considerable amount of investment. stomach the upfront cost then you’re enjoying reap the benefits for many years to come. One of the most amazing thing about drip irrigation is the fact that you can water a whole Garden systematically by just turning on one tap. You have a main water but that then links and has the watering hoses running all over the garden. Because this method so affected the water just runs to the end of the line then just slowly releases because of the small gaps and holes in the post pipe at the end. It requires almost no maintenance and you can even add fertiliser to the water so that you don’t even have to run around and fertilise the garden either. This has the added benefit of not spreading a fertiliser over the leaves which might be an edible part of your garden. From so many perspectives a water irrigation method is priceless if you’re planning to stay at property for a long time.
