Smart Irrigation uses automatic sprinklers or drip watering system to apply the least amount of water for the best health of the plant. Smart irrigation sprinkler systems water grass. Smart irrigation drip systems water shrubs, trees, ground covers and other plants. You may have one or both irrigation systems to water your landscape.

The Irrigation Association has a variety of information for both sprinkler and drip Smart Irrigation systems on their website at www.smartirrigationmonth.org.
