Watering your plants with a house will make your ground very wet and water will seep in your soil. Water runoff will then remove vital nutrients from the soil. Your plants can get weak for lack of nutrients. Too much water can also compact your soil. Soon your plants will be suffocating in your compacted soil and will eventually die. Plants are protected with the right irrigation system since they are given water according to their needs. You can retain the nutrients of the soil and because there is just enough water in the soil, they don’t get compacted.
