5. Irrigation

If you are away or just busy, it is easy to forget about your plants in extreme dry spells. For longevity, condition and growth plants need adequate watering. New systems are capable of dripping water to the root zone, turn off when it rains, fertilize or even reusing grey water. This means that they are cost effective and target water where it can do the most good.

It is disappointing when plants die, and you are landed with the cost of replacement planting and the time to get the new plants established. With hedges a dead plant can take years to fill back in. Irrigation is important regardless the size of your property. Many systems now are able to run dripper line that conserves water and reduces their long term running cost by feeding the plants roots directly.
