We install simple irrigation systems - they can take the form of micro or drip sprinklers with water supplied from a garden tap.

 

With the aid of a battery operated timer, this is an effective way of reducing water usage, ensuring that plants are watered more efficiently with reduced maintenance.

 

With the hosepipe ban in the South East that took place in early summer 2012 , many Water Authorities permitted  the use of a timer based drip irrigation system to water the garden. Existing micro spray systems can easily be adapted to a drip system to water hedges and shrubs.

 

For long runs of hedging or trees, dripline irrigation is very effective and ensures recently installed planting gets off to a good start.

 

Pop-up sprinklers for smaller,  town garden lawns can even be run off mains water pressure.
