Watering a garden can be one of the most time consuming tasks a gardener faces.  Because manually watering a garden is an inefficient use of time, many gardeners choose to employ a tool, such as a sprinkler or hose, to water their garden.  While these tools can save the gardener time, they are inefficient at properly distributing water and, depending on your location or the season, can ruin your garden by either over or under watering your plants.  A more advanced solution may be to invest in a drip irrigation system for your garden.  A drip irrigation system distributes water continuously in a trickle rather than a stream like a hose or sprinkler would.  This allows the water to properly seep into the ground over time, while at the same time ensuring that the garden’s plants have a consistent source of water. 

When choosing a drip irrigation system, gardeners have a choice between buying an above ground irrigation system or an underground one.  Above ground drip irrigation systems are inexpensive and easy to install.  If you will be moving your plants around frequently, an above ground irrigation system is preferable to an underground system since the above ground system is easier to move.  On the other hand, gardeners concerned with the aesthetics of their garden may prefer using an underground irrigation method.  As the name implies, an underground irrigation system is not visible because all the piping is laid underground.  The underground system also has the advantage of feeding water directly to the roots ensuring maximum moisture for the plants.  That being said,  underground systems can involve a complex installation and may cost substantially more than the above ground system so it is less suitable for a casual gardener. 

No matter which irrigation system a gardener chooses to utilize, buying a drip irrigation system is a smart investment.  Although initially more expensive than a hose or water can, an irrigation system helps plants thrive through distributing an appropriate amount of water and it requires very little upkeep, which will save any gardener time in the long run.
