Re: Drip irrigation

Hi @brkylnm94,

 

Welcome to Workshop. We trust that you'll receive loads of helpful information, advice and inspiration for all your projects around the house and garden from our amazing community members. 

 

I would recommend you start by taking a look at the D.I.Y. Advice series from Bunnings on how to install a new garden irrigation system.  I will also pop a couple of videos below. 

 

Have a good look and then come back to the community with your specific questions. Installing a system is not difficult - I'm sure you will be up and running in no time with a bit of help from our members. 

 

There's also some helpful advice in these previous discussions:

Re: Drip irrigation

If I could go back to when I first started installing my own irrigation, I would give myself the advice that not every single plant needs a dripper directly aimed at its base. A number of times I've gone back and taken out extra drippers or tricklers because I had way to many for a small (often part-shade) space. I've shaken my head at my past self's decisions, but when you don't know any better, you can get carried away. Go with the minimum you think you need, and see how it goes on that. Adding more later is generally easier than removing them and having to use plugs to fill the holes.
