All experts agree that proper irrigation is a fundamental element for the well-being of plants and that, moreover, giving the right amount of water to the lawn and plants has a considerable impact on both the domestic economy and the natural environment.
Every time we open a tap, in fact, it is good to remember that water is a vital and increasingly valuable element, whose availability is not unlimited and that its cost can weigh heavily on the budget of a family or a condominium, especially if we are talking about gardens of medium or medium-large size.
It is also to be considered as the climate change in progress, with less and less frequent rainfall and higher temperatures (we speak of + 1.4 ° C more recorded in 2014 compared to the thirty-year period 1971-2000 – source CNR ) makes it even more necessary to irrigate evenly, calibrated and away from the hottest hours of the day, to prevent the water from evaporating unnecessarily on the ground, even before reaching the roots of the grass and plants.
All the advantages of underground irrigation
Fortunately, today the evolution of technology provides gardening enthusiasts with all the advantages of underground irrigation, a system designed to meet the needs of agriculture and large public green spaces.
With a reduced investment, it is possible to create an underground system at home, equipped with electronic programmer, solenoid valves and pop-up sprinklers to automatically water the lawn and plants, at the best times and without wasting water unnecessarily: even when we are away for work, or on holiday.
