We are changing the world one garden at a time.  Automate your deep watering and take it subsurface to save water and irrigate more efficiently

Before developing the Root Quencher™ products, I had been frustrated for years trying to figure out how to get enough water to trees while not flooding normal planters. The water bills had gotten out of control and a lot of my more deep-rooted landscaping was not thriving. I needed a smart way to deliver enough water to quench the roots of fruit trees, regular trees, and bushes without wasting water. As for fertilizing, I’d been struggling with putting down fertilizers on the ground, scratching it into the surface around the drip line, and watering it in, hoping it reached the roots that were 9”-22” under the surface. It never seemed quite right or sensible to me.

As I installed early prototypes of the Root Quencher™, I found that I could use less water, control the flow to balance zones that contained regular planting beds or grass, as well as help my landscaping thrive. I’d rejected the notion that somehow an expensive subsurface drip system could give my landscaping the right amount of water and could work in conjunction with existing sprinkler systems. Short of tearing out all of my residential irrigation systems and starting over, I pursued the Root Quencher™ as the solution.

In Deep Irrigation is both a woman-owned and minority-owned business. Our products are made in the USA, specifically in California, and cater to the needs of Southern Californians looking to get the most enjoyment out of their gardens—and to save water and costs along the way!

With a modern design, the Root Quencher works by providing deep root irrigation for trees, bushes, shrubs, gardens, and plants. This water efficient system can be adjusted based on the depth of the roots and the soil conditions. As an all-in-one deep root watering tool, it can connect to water sources via a sprinkler system, drip irrigation system, or regular garden hose. While acting as an underground irrigation system, we make it easy to apply fertilizer via the top removable cap.

We know you will enjoy using our line of deep watering products and look forward to your feedback! Connect with us to learn more about the installation process or to place an order for yours today!

Our Story

In Deep Irrigation was created out of our love for plants, trees, bushes, and the need to care for them properly.

Growing up, I watched my parents avidly pursue knowledge about plants and trees through formal education. There was no Google back then to quickly do research, and because there was no Home Depot either, they even mixed their own fertilizers. I watched them tend to their many fruit trees, regular trees, bushes, flowers, and plants, and remember my father installing irrigation systems all over the yard that my uncle designed. His brilliant use of water and the manipulation of water drops to cut down on misting and evaporation were cutting edge in the 60’s and 70’s and remain very relevant today.
