About garden irrigation

As anyone who has a backyard garden knows, plants require constant watering. Using traditional watering methods like buckets and hoses is not very effective and is also time consuming. The sprinkler system is also not very effective because water many times doesn’t reach the roots.

An in-ground irrigation system is the most effective of all because it delivers water directly to the plant roots.

Start off by digging a 6 inches deep ditch from the outdoor water source to the garden. The ditch will be the area that holds the hose. Place a garden hose in the ditch and cover the ditch with dirt. Connect a back flow preventer to the spigot. It will not allow contaminated water to go back into the main water supply. Connect a half inch wide drip tubing to the end of the garden hose and then place the tubing along the row of plants. At the end of each row, cut the tube, attach a connector and reattach a new set of tubing. Make sure the tubing is close to the roots of the plants. Use plastic stakes to secure the tubing into place. Test the system by turning the water on and checking for leaks.
