Since every great thing is first conceived in the mind, then is actualized in reality, the process of creating a great and awesome garden, likewise, follows the process of creating anything that is great. Hence, if you want to create a fantastic garden where flowers are abloom and vegetables and foliage thrive, you first need to conceptualize your garden in your mind; then put your conceptualization on a clean sheet of paper; and afterwards, meticulously actualize the conceptual design in reality.
Gardens need to be nurtured and taken care of. You need to create a holistic system of irrigation that would readily address the water need of each kind of plant. Likewise, you need to supply the soil with the needed nutrients of the plants to make sure that the plants will vibrantly grow into awesome foliage. Without enough water and soil nutrients, the plants’ growth may be stymied, and plants may wither away, and may eventually die. Hence, it is imperative that before you undertake the process of creating your own garden, you should plan beforehand the irrigation system. A poorly planned garden watering system may not be able to address the water need of your garden; and hence, later on, you may be required to revise the design, and that would be costly to you. There are agencies and services, however, that may help you design and plan your garden, and it would sometimes work to your advantage if you avail yourself of one of these services to ensure that you are on the right track in the creation of your garden and the installation of one of the best garden watering systems.
A good irrigation system should have the necessary components to make it function well. First, it has to have the timer which will serve as the control of the watering cycle. Then, it must also have a backflow preventer, which can preclude the siphoning of the water of the irrigation system back into the drinking water system. It also has to have valves that would serve as the automatic control valves. These valves have to be connected to the controller via a wire so that they would be automatically opened and closed by the controller. Likewise, it must have a filter to keep debris and dirt from clogging the drips and emitters of the irrigation line. It also has to have a pressure regulator to monitor and regulate the pressure within the irrigation system. You also need to buy pipes where the water would flow. This component may consist of either PVC or long hoses, and will serve as chambers through which water is delivered to the different parts of the garden. You also need micro-tubes which can deliver water directly to the root zones of the plants. Micro-tubes are around a quarter of an inch in diameter. Moreover, you need emitters that are connected to the tubing. Emitters are designed to slowly deliver water to the plants at a very consistent slow pace. You also need a flush valve to cap the end of every irrigation line.
There are other components of a good irrigation system, yet the abovementioned vital components are enough to enable you to build a highly efficient and functional irrigation system.
