Lots of new people on the board that I haven't seen before since I am not as regular as I once was
Babies do that -- zap that hour of free time you USED to have int he evenings.
Anyways, working on a project at home. I often end up with orphan plants left over from various design projects that I need to keep watered. What I want to do is set up an above-ground sprinkler system that I could use to keep everything watered so i'm not stuck out there with a hose for 30 - 40 minutes every day.
My initial ide was simply using spray heads on pvc risers that would be secured to the fence where the nursery stock is. right now is pretty typical -- I have about 45 one gallon containers -- a dozen or so 5 gallon can and one or two b&b trees. they are ina space along fence that would extend about 50 - 75' I would have to supply water for spray heads from a hose since no water is currently run to this part of the property and am not going to trench pipe just for this.
I was thinking using a regular irrigation controller and valves. This should work rigt?
But hten I go to thinking -- would a drip system be better -- I have no expereince witht his -- but it seems that it would work well.
