Drip systems are an irrigation godsend. In contrast to a conventional sprinkler system's wayward water output, a drip system uses a microtube and a pressure regulator to send controlled water flow directly to the plant's root. Because of its regulated water usage and flow rate, you can save money and save water in the long run.
While these irrigation systems are especially beneficial for sizeable commercial and residential crops and greenhouses, any lawn situation can grab a piece of the drip system pie. Luckily, Sprinkler Warehouse has the best, most affordable drip irrigation kits in the market. Did we mention how affordable they are? Whether you're faced with browning bluegrass on your two-acre lot or that one potted Mandevilla on your patio that just won't bloom, one of the many available drip irrigation kits could be your solution. Let's explore different models to see which fits within your budgetary and landscaping bounds.

This American-made, all-inclusive, convenience-clad kit just might fit your irrigation expectations like a gardening glove.
