Residential Lawn & Garden Irrigation

Irrigation of lawns and gardens is one of the most important aspects of residential horticulture. Unfortunately, the correct application of water to one’s home landscape is also one of the least understood aspects of home horticulture. Little time is dedicated by homeowners and gardening enthusiasts to learning about irrigation.

It is true that factors like poor soil fertility, improper amounts of sunlight, diseases, insects, and more can limit the production processes of plants and ultimately plant growth. However, water is generally seen as the most limiting factor in plant growth. Not only is it required for many production processes in plants, but it is also necessary for the proper absorption and transport of nutrients in plants.
