  • Sub-Surface Irrigation Barossa Valley

    Sub-surface irrigation is an irrigation technology which is designed for a range of soil textures and significantly reduces the usage of water. By delivering the water directly to the plant’s root zone, sub-surface irrigation lowers on-going operational costs and improves the quality of the land. If sub-surface irrigation is installed and maintained properly, it can last for decades, vastly improving the value of the land, and the well being of the soil and plants.

    Sub-surface irrigation is the only system that can safely use recycled or treated water without having to go through the expensive process of polishing treatment, because the water does not reach the surface.

    The water is applied beneath the surface, which creates an artificial table below the ground. This ensures the moisture will move towards the surface, which causes minimum evaporation loss. Su-surface irrigation is an environmentally and economically sound solution to watering crops, sports fields, domestic gardens, school playgrounds and community areas.

    The advantages of sub-surface irrigation are varied and many, and the team at Gawler Irrigation are only too pleased to discuss them with you when you are planning your irrigation solution. Sub-surface irrigation is a wonderfully efficient use of water, because surface runoff, soil evaporation and deep percolation are significantly reduced or can be eliminated completely. Because there is better water control, the water application is more uniform, causing less wastage. Automation of the irrigation saves time and money, because it decreases energy costs both financially and physically.

    Gawler Irrigation can also discuss with you the benefit of the flexibility of the design of the sub-surface system. For any area, be it a sporting ground, a school’s play area or council areas like median strips of community areas, sub-surface irrigation can play a major role in the beautification of an area and assist in the efficiency and maintenance of the land.
