Despite the fact that humans are newcomers to Earth, their achievements have been enormous. One of those achievements is the skill to control the water flow.
One of the first successful efforts to control the flow of water were made in Mesopotamia and Egypt where the remains of the prehistoric irrigation works still exist. One of the first duties of pharaohs was the construction of canals. They were used for controlled flooding of large areas near the Nile when its level rose. Similar successful attempts for controlled irrigation were made in many regions, such as: North America, Mexico, China and Korea.

Technologies have developed and today you can find a range variety of products for the specific needs of the landscape architecture.

Leading factor for the intelligent use of irrigation system is the well designed and thought plan, so as to satisfy not only the aesthetic needs of the client, but to use the minimum amount of water. The good project and the sequent adjustment of the irrigation system are based on the Climate of the specific area, the basic characteristics of the soil on the terrain, the type and the specific need of the plants in your yard, as well as the proper separation of the different areas for irrigation.
