While planning out parts of your lawn you may be wondering drip or spray irrigation? While both types of irrigation have their benefits, the answer ultimately depends on the specific needs and preferences of the property owner.

Spray Irrigation

Sprinkler head in green grass spraying

Involves spraying water from sprinkler heads in a circular or rectangular pattern over the desired area. This type of irrigation is ideal for large areas such as lawns, sports fields, and parks. Spray irrigation is relatively inexpensive, easy to install, and provides even coverage of water over a wide area.

Drip Irrigation

This is the slow release of water directly to the root zone of plants through a series of small tubes. This type of irrigation is ideal for landscaped areas, gardens, and individual plants, because it provides precise watering and minimizes water waste.

Drip irrigation delivers water directly to the plants’ roots, reducing the amount  of water lost to the soil and lessons weeds.

Both types of irrigation require regular maintenance and adjustments to ensure optimal performance. Spray irrigation may require regular cleaning of the sprinkler heads and adjustments to the spray pattern, while drip irrigation may require occasional flushing of the lines to prevent clogging and adjustments to the emitters to ensure proper water distribution.
