Lawn irrigation Dripper v sprinkler in Canberra?

By 3 January, 2013 5

Hi riotact,

Im looking at irrigation for the lawn I will soon be seeding. It’s a big lawn (over 1000mtrs) and I’ve heard a few things about planting drip line underneath as opposed to sprinklers.

Any help or advice you could offer would be appreciated

Thanks

Pure hearsay…

I’ve been told that drippers are pretty useless for lawns since they have a limited range per drip-hole and this gets worse as the ground compacts over time.You’ll end up with little green patches of lawn among a sea of dead brown. Could look quite pretty from an artistic point of view ;-)

have a look at the KISS system that is an underground drip irrigation system. Are you wanting to do it yourself???

Here is a link http://www.kisss.com.au/

I know this was posted long ago, but I have had KISSS irrigation in my lawn in Gungahlin for 8 years and never had a problem. Use only when it is needed. I wouldn’t use normal droppers. The sticker on my control box has the phone number 0419296251. He was the only one installing KISSS at the time.
