When supplying water to all of the commercially potted plants in a city it is not recommended to send someone out to water the plants by hand. Drip irrigation can save money and water for commercial potted plants.
It is simple to install irrigation into a potted plant both from the bottom through the soil, or simply dragging a drip line to the surface of the pot. Sprinkler Warehouse is happy to provide knowledge to businesses on how to install drip irrigation for any potted plants.
