MICRO & DRIP IRRIGATION
We specialize in micro and drip irrigation. “Micro-irrigation" refers to a family of irrigation systems that apply water through small devices. These devices deliver water onto the soil surface very near the plant, such as through micro spray emitters, or below the soil surface directly into the plant root zone.
Micro-irrigation systems can be modified to suit your needs for precision water application.
Drip irrigation is a special form of micro- irrigation that can be set up underground to deliver water directly to plant roots, or as individual above-ground drip emitters.
We also work with traditional automatic sprinkler systems.
