All experts agree that proper irrigation is a fundamental element for the well-being of plants and that, moreover, giving the lawn and plants the right amount of water has a considerable impact both on the domestic economy and on the environment. natural. Every time we open a tap, in fact, it is good to remember that water is a vital and increasingly precious element, whose availability is not unlimited and that its cost can weigh heavily on the budget of a family or a condominium. , especially if we are talking about medium or medium-large gardens. It must also be considered how the climate change underway, with less and less frequent rainfall and ever higher temperatures (we are talking about + 1.4 ° C more recorded in 2014 compared to the thirty years 1971-2000 – source CNR) more necessary a uniform irrigation, calibrated and away from the hottest hours of the day, to prevent the water from evaporating unnecessarily on the ground, even before reaching the roots of the grass and plants.
Fortunately, today the evolution of technology makes all the advantages of underground irrigation available to gardening enthusiasts, a system created to meet the needs of agriculture and large public green spaces. With a small investment, it is possible to create an underground system at home, equipped with an electronic programmer, solenoid valves and retractable sprinklers (“pop up”) to automatically water the lawn and plants, at the best times and without wasting water unnecessarily: even when we are absent for work or on vacation. Among the various brands specialized in the field of domestic irrigation, Claber is an Italian company that stands out for its experience, quality, ease of use and cutting-edge technologies.
