Consistent watering is the key to a productive garden. Let’s face it, most of us lead busy lives and don’t have time to consistently hand water our backyard veggie patch with the garden hose. Some gardeners are lucky enough to live where it rains regularly and don’t have to worry about watering.
Here in drought ridden So Cal, it rarely rains, so watering my garden is a huge issue for me. I have used drip irrigation in my garden for years – it saves me a ton of money, time and best of all, my garden gets the water it needs to produce lots of veggies.
Many gardeners are intimidated by the thought of installing a drip irrigation system. No need to be – drip irrigation is quick and easy to install, and very inexpensive. I started with DIG Drip Irrigation Kit years ago as a total newbie, have added to my system over the years as my garden expands.
I teamed up with DIG Corp for the installation of a container drip irrigation system for our Smart Pots garden for my “Growing your Fall Garden Series”. Watch “How to Install a Drip Irrigation System for Containers” as DIG expert, Stu, explains why it’s important to have a separate irrigation system for containers, and takes us step-by-step through the install of a ML50 Raised Bed Drip Irrigation Kit.
