This is how underground irrigation works
The water pipes are dug into the earth. Even in very large or very winding gardens, the pipes can be laid so precisely that every corner of the lawn is blasted.
- Find out what's wrong with the lawn through soil analysis
- Separate lawns and beds with lawn edges
- The lawn is dry - what now?
Sprinklers, which are lifted above the surface of the earth by the water pressure, ensure that the water is distributed. When the water pressure drops, the nozzles disappear into the ground again.
Which sprinklers you use depends on the individual design and planting of your garden. You can irrigate the garden with circular, oscillating or extensive irrigation.
The exclusive solution: sensors
There are now underground irrigation systems for the lawn that are equipped with sensors. The sensors measure how much moisture the earth is. As soon as the soil gets too dry, they start the irrigation system.
This solution is not very cheap, but it does ensure that the lawn is optimally watered. For you as a garden owner, the system makes lawn care much easier.
The advantages of an underground irrigation system
- Neither pipes nor nozzles are visible
- Lawn can be mowed without hindrance
- A single installation is sufficient
- Irrigation times can be programmed
- Less water consumption through controlled irrigation
- Is frost-proof
Since the nozzles disappear back into the ground after the work is done, they are not an obstacle to gardening work. When mowing, you do not have to be careful not to drive over pipes. This means that a robot lawn mower can also be used to cut lawns without any problems.
The underground system is emptied using drainage valves before winter so that no frost damage occurs.
The times of the day at which watering should take place can be programmed. You can freely choose when the irrigation should start. This also works on vacation or when you are absent for a longer period of time.
Tips & Tricks
Underground sprinkling systems for the lawn can be easily combined with other irrigation systems from the market leader Gardena. The whole system can be adjusted so that you no longer have to worry about watering the garden yourself.
