Spray irrigation is still the most common form of irrigation in the domestic setting, even though it is relatively wasteful, especially when compared to drip irrigation. This is typically achieved by the use of sprinkler attachments. It does have the advantage that it distributes moisture over a very broad area, though they do have a tendency to overwater. More modern systems use a finer nozzle to generate a fine mist, which is very effective at watering plants such as ferns. They also consume considerably less water.
Water efficiency in the garden is a reality that reflects the growing awareness that natural resources are finite. Many homeowners are installing rainwater tanks to alleviate the financial burden of maintaining a garden. This also eases the burden on increasingly scarce local water resources such as groundwater aquifers, dams and springs.
