Irrigation products are designed based on the layout of the plants. Proper design of irrigation is best when the planting design is done with the irrigation design in mind. Irrigation systems for landscaping are frequently installed improperly or don’t even exist. I have observed this from my years of experience. Fixing any improperly installed drip irrigation system is a common requirement for most landscape refurbishment projects. Here is how you can set up a drip irrigation system for your garden.
Proper planting pattern
Irrigation fittings are designed based on the layout of the plants. Proper irrigation design is best when the planting pattern is done with the irrigation design in mind. Plantings are not only chosen for their form, structure and shape, but for the amount of sun they favor. The idea of planting zones will dictate the way the irrigation system is established.
Create Irrigation Zones based on the plantings
Zones permit for the irrigation valves to deliver water at various durations and frequency. Therefore, an irrigation station or individual valve is dedicated to a specific zone. Instances of zones would be containers, food garden, native plant area, north shrubs, trees, rear lawn, front lawn etc. Remember that each of these zones needs various amounts of water. Some need daily watering, other only once per week.
Decide Valve control Box location
Once you have a layout regarding which zones to be irrigated, you then find out where the valves should be located. The control valves will require a water source, so where that point of connection will affect the location of the control box. On newer homes, the mainline feeding the house might have a pressure reducer into the house. In some cases, they will install a stub out fitting for connection to the irrigation valves, if not, you will have to tie into that main line and run a line to your valves.
Find the irrigation controller
The valves need to be controlled and automated by an irrigation controller. The controller should have as various available stations as you have valves. The controller might be located indoors or outdoors and in either case, associated with a source of electricity. Control wire will run from the controller location to each of the valves, hence it’s not critical to find the valves near the controller.
Install the emitters and the lateral lines
Once you set up the mainline connection, your controller and valves, you can run your “lateral” lines that feed all the zones. Remember that if you have a single plant with a 1 GPH emitter and another with a 5 GPH emitter on the same zone.
