A stunning and captivating planting scheme containing healthy plants is what makes a garden, and efficient irrigation is key to establishing new plants and sustaining healthy growth.
Using watering cans and hose pipes is a very wasteful method of watering your plants, hand watering means that water just hits the foliage of the plants and fails to reach the root ball and soil directly under the plant. By installing an automatic irrigation system the volume of water used in the garden drops considerably. An irrigation system is a responsible and efficient method of applying water as it ensures the water gets to the right places.
Whether you want to irrigate your pots, beds, borders, hedges, trees, green roof and lawn, we are able to design irrigation system to suit any garden. Flexibility in the design and installation of the irrigation system will give you more options of where you can grow plants.

At a touch of a button systems can be programmed to come on more than once a day, preferably during the night when evaporation rates are less. This kind of regime allows for water to get deep into the soil, resulting in healthy, tolerant plants with strong root systems. This feature is particularly important for newly planted schemes, an irrigation system is vital if plants are to establish properly and get a good start in life. Having an irrigation system in place will also safeguard your financial investment in the garden.
We encourage water conservation throughout the garden by instilling other methods, such as mulching over beds, this will save water by helping to maintain the moisture levels and improving soil conditions. Rain sensors are installed to stop the system working in the event of rain fall, preventing the garden from becoming water logged and ultimately helping to conserve water.
