How to install an irrigation system in your garden?

An automatic irrigation system consists of pipes, usually buried under the lawn, and the appropriate number of sprinklers. The whole system is powered by electro-valves, which are placed in a special box

First of all, you need to make a design for the layout of the irrigation system so that the sprinklers can water the entire garden area. The best way is to install both static and rotating sprinklers. You can also connect to the system dripline and emitters for watering beds or vegetable garden. It’s best to install the system before the lawn is established, so you can avoid digging up the turf and then re-seeding the grass
