  • Sub Surface Irrigation Adelaide Hills

    Sub-surface irrigation is the process of water being applied beneath the ground by creating an artificial water table below the ground surface. The moisture moves upwards andinvolves minimum evaporation loss and surface waste by the water getting to the roots, which makes it an environmentally and economically sound way of irrigating crops, fields and gardens.

    There are many advantages to using sub-surface irrigation. It is a more efficient use of water, for starters. Things like surface runoff, deep percolation and soil evaporation are significantly reduced or eliminated completely. The water is better controlled, ensuring greater water application uniformity, and less wastage. Cost wise, the automation saves time and the decreased energy costs save money.

    Another benefit is the increased flexibility of the design of the system. Whether it’s a sports field, school playground or median strip, sub-surface irrigation can play a major role in the upkeep, beauty and efficiency of the area.
