When designing automatic irrigation systems, parameters such as length, contour and throughput of irrigation lines, radius of action of irrigation heads, working pressure in the water supply system (the type of water supply is also centralized or autonomous), soil type, slope and terrain, features, are taken into account its drainage system, the need for water of various green spaces (lawn grass, trees, shrubs, flowers, vegetables); automatic irrigation system should also organically fit into the landscape design of the site.
