Drip is not just a four-letter word. It really works! Although drip has been misunderstood, maligned, and basically abused, it is the best watering strategy to keep plants healthy and happy.
Drip has the distinct and unique capability of delivering the exact amount of water that individual plants require. If the irrigation zone has plants that are all of the same water-need classification (like all low-water plants), inline drip grids may be effectively applied. If the irrigation zone has plants of different water needs (like low-water plants mixed with moderate-water plants), individual emitters can be used to address each plant’s water needs directly.
