conventional sprinkler system, you may want to convert it to a dripper irrigation system. While an automatic sprinkler system is nice for watering large lawn areas, it is not as efficient when watering plants and garden areas. Drip watering systems are much more water efficient and are relatively easy to install on a basic sprinkler head connection. Drip systems are especially good for vegetable gardens and rows of shrubs. You can also use a watering timer to automate your drippers or micro sprayers just as you would a regular underground irrigation system. Dripping irrigation systems are also nice if the area where you live is experiencing a drought and cut backs need to be made.
To save yourself some money and cut down on water usage, consider converting your lawn sprinkler system to a drip irrigation system. Installation is simple and you can purchase drip converter kits with all the parts you need to make the switch.
