Although we wish people never left their gardens, the truth is we can’t always be there every morning to water. Typically lawn sprinklers either under or over-water garden beds. RTG is proud to announce that we now install automatic irrigation systems for edible gardens. These systems are very convenient for the busy or traveling gardener.
Our reliable, easy-to-program timers allow you to control when and how often you water, and attach directly to a hose spigot. At the garden we use water saving drip lines and micro-sprinklers. The drip line emitters deliver water directly to the root-zone, minimizing losses to evaporation. The micro sprinklers are great for the salad greens and seed propagation because they provide a light sprinkling that perfectly moistens the soil without compacting it. This irrigation jargon translates to the best way irrigate a raised bed vegetable garden. Systems start at only $200 and quickly pay for themselves in time and garden growth.
Advantages of automatic drip irrigation system:
– Eliminates daily hand watering
– Cares for your garden when you’re out of town
– Uses a fraction of the water compared to traditional sprinklers
– Does not compact soil
– Reduces diseases problems caused by overhead sprinkler and hose watering
– Operates independent of lawn sprinklers
