Shrub Investment Protection
In a typical transplant project, as many as 20% of shrubs do not survive beyond two years. Over 50% of newly planted shrub mortality is due to water and nutrient stress. Rain Bird’s RWS-S provides subsurface irrigation and aeration designed to prevent shrub transplant shock. It allows the roots to grow deeper and broader resulting in greater stability, higher survival rates and long-term healthier growth.
Subsurface, deep root watering and aeration ensures tree health and promotes accelerated growth. Subsurface watering is intelligent irrigation. RWS-S minimizes the total water volume required to irrigate shrubs, reducing water loss due to evaporation, wind and edge control losses.
The RWS-S helps prevent shallow root growth by minimizing water run-off and damage to hardscapes. The aesthetically designed subsurface bubbler is contained with the RWS-S tube. The below-grade installation contributes to a safer and more reliable installation -no one is tripping over or breaking above-ground irrigation hardware. The below-grade installation promotes a landscape’s natural appearance.
