So, you’ve heard good things about drip irrigation for the home garden, but it still sounds intimidating. Are you still stretching a hose out to water your plants or even using a sprinkler?
There really is a better way and there are many compelling reasons to install your own do-it-yourself (DIY) drip irrigation system. The obvious benefit is saving water. A drip system can be 90-95 percent efficient compared to hand watering. It will save time and labor.
Drip systems can be used in flower and vegetable gardens and even for container plants. Drip systems can reduce weeds and disease making for healthier plants.
