Drip irrigation is hip. More than that, drip irrigation works extremely well and is the most water efficient irrigation technology.
Where traditional overhead spray systems waste half of the water that comes out of a sprayhead, drip irrigation puts water directly onto the rootball, where it is needed. It also keeps fertilizers, pesticides, and pollutant-laced runoff out of our waterways.
Old style drip irrigation technology is a maze of parts and pieces that blows apart, falls apart, and otherwise breaks.
In this presentation, Nan demonstrates the best irrigation technologies, their parts and pieces, how they are made, how easy they are to install and maintain, and where to learn more about them. She discusses specific irrigation situations (vegetable gardens vs. ornamental gardens, slopes, mixed plantings, etc.) and how to use drip with them as well.
