Above: Drip emitters deliver water to plant root zones with very little waste.

Drip Irrigation
Drip irrigation (commonly known as “drip”) directs water right to where plants need it—at their root zones. Using a network of poly-propylene tubing, drip irrigation releases a slow trickle of water through properly placed emitters. As long as this type of irrigation system is properly installed, closely monitored and efficiently maintained, drip is a highly efficient water-delivery method. Drip emitters are often located under mulch, so, with a drip system, very little water is lost due to evaporation. In most cases, drip irrigation is the preferred form of landscape irrigation in New Mexico.
