All about Drainage And Irrigation Solutions
The love for nature is something that should remain in our hearts by showing up efforts to take care of it. We should think of how to take care of trees in different ways. We need to take care of them, and we enjoy many benefits. They provide us with shade as well as attracting rains. Trees also maintain the beauty of the environment. Others will also use trees for medicinal purposes, as well as some products that come from them. We will only enjoy the benefits of trees after we take care of them, and it is something that we should not negotiate about.
Any time we are cultivating trees, we should not forget to provide them with water. It is also not a wonder to find some trees with slow growth as a result of the poor drainage system. We should therefore not forget about the drainage system as well as water. There will only be proper growth and development when we subject trees to irrigation as well as a good drainage system. We are likely to suffocate roots when there is little water as well as a flooded situation. There should only be enough water so that oxygen could circulate well, thus increasing the rate of respiration. Photosynthesis is likely to stop in flooded conditions after a few hours. We are also likely to miss out on some microorganisms. In the event of drought, trees will also be affected in one way or another. There will be wilting as well as reduced growth.
Flooding will also be a result of applying much water at frequent intervals. In that case, therefore, the grade of the land will change as a result of the poor quality of the soil. Trees in flooded conditions will lose roots since oxygen will have been reduced. As much as we will subject trees to different water levels, we should bear in mind that it will depend on age as well as environmental factors. It is newly planted trees that require frequent watering. Even though watering will lead to the maturity of the trees, we should also expect some problems. It is a good idea to subject trees to deep soaking so that the root system can be productive. The biggest mistake we tend to make is wrong timing when it comes to irrigation. The best time we can always irrigate is early morning or late at night though there are fungal infections. There are different ways of irrigating which will depend on our choice. Many people prefer sprinkler irrigation even though it has some setbacks like soil surface compaction. When we use mulching, it will reduce soil erosion but again, it is likely to lead to soil crusting. There is also high-pressure water injection as well as drip irrigation. Drip irrigation reduces water absorption and allows more water to be absorbed by roots through water evaporation. There is also basin irrigation which fits young trees, but again it is used for single trees. We get to find that most irrigation systems are installed.
