Life Irrigation provides the Ecodrip range of drip irrigation products to facilitate automatic watering solutions for garden and landscape irrigation systems. The Ecodripô irrigation products we supply and install are very high quality and, when installed and managed properly, can reduce water consumption by almost 90%.
When should drip irrigation be used?
Drip irrigation can be the ideal solution to provide an automatic watering system for slopes and uneven surfaces, or environments which do not normally lend themselves to a regular sprinkler-based system, such as furnished gardens, car parks or roof terraces. Drip irrigation is also suitable for all types of flower beds.
The benefits of drip irrigation
Sub-surface drip irrigation is invisible and can be activated day or night, making it ideal for areas such as roof terraces and certain lawn applications. Drip irrigation systems replace the need for sprinklers and therefore avoid water splashing and also have the benefit of an anti-siphon mechanism which minimises the risk of flooding in low lying areas.
With regard to water distribution, the Ecodrip drip irrigation system uses 1.75 litres of water per hour, per drip throughout the whole zone, regardless of distance from the water source. This ensures exactly the right amount of water is delivered to all areas in order to provide optimum conditions for healthy gardens.

How does Drip irrigation work?
Life Irrigation provides gardens and landscapes across the United Kingdom with a wide range of drip irrigation systems ("drip systems"). All are of very high quality and if managed and installed in the right way, save almost 90% on water bills. For the irrigation of uneven surfaces and slopes, car park environments or furnished gardens, Life Irrigation has its surfaced or sub-surface irrigation, the EcoDrip™. This is the perfect product for these types of surfaces, as it avoids water splashing and replaces sprinklers. In addition, it has an anti-siphon mechanism, which stops flooding in low lying areas.
Getting the right amount of water
In terms of water distribution, it is exactly 1.75 litres per hour per drip throughout the entire area, with no variation due to differences in distance from the water source. This ensures all areas get precisely the amount of water they need to grow optimally. If you require irrigation for roof terraces, the EcoDrip™ can do the job. The invisible nature of the sub-surface irrigation allows it to be activated either during the day or the night.
