Border Irrigation and Watering Systems
Drip or mist border irrigation systems for planted beds and flower borders keep plants fresh and vibrant even in hot weather.
Drip line border irrigation systems
For reliability it is important the drip border irrigation system design specifies commercial quality drip lines for border irrigation projects. Commercial grade drip lines are manufactured to very high specifications and are designed to last for years. Normal weeding and bed maintenance will not damage the drip lines. To provide camouflage, the pipe can be buried beneath bark mulch; even when installed on the surface, plant growth soon hides the pipe work from sight.

Border mini sprinklers
For existing borders, or where you would like a more visually interesting method of border watering, mini sprinklers can be used. Typically these are placed every 2 – 3m down the length of the border and are supplied via a single 20mm supply pipe. The water supply to each individual bed can be delivered using tough, underground pipes; or if the watering system is being retro-fitted, then a garden hose connection point can be placed on the bed.

Border popup sprinklers
Traditional lawn sprinklers are too harsh for borders, damaging delicate plants. The MP rotator sprinklers use a very fine sprinkler nozzle to give a light rain-like coverage over the border.
Easily installed in an established border, the sprinklers are trenched into the front of the border and rise up 300mm when operating, throwing the water over the border. Once turned off they are almost invisible at the front of the flower bed. For smaller projects Access have designed a border spray kit that can be ordered online
