Anyone can make their own drip irrigation system if they have the desire, patience, knowledge and good counselor. In recent years, this method of irrigation has become more and more necessary, proving its effectiveness. However, in contrast to the Polish conditions, to build such an irrigation network in a garden environment is a slightly different task. Arranging a beautiful garden involves the cultivation of various plant species and a recreation area, as well as alleys. If you want to grow both flowers and vegetables, the task becomes even more complicated. We will offer you two ideas for building drip irrigation systems based on the idea already described separate garden beds - "Garden in the garden".

In the first case, the so-called "Serial connection", which is suitable for unevenly distributed irrigation areas, and in the second model is "Parallel connection". As a number of details are important for both models, we advise you to consult a specialist before starting work. In the general case, the necessary materials are: two types of hose - ordinary for the connection between the gardens and drip (irrigation pipe), the choice of the latter is particularly important and may be different for different garden beds; connection between the two types (plug); connecting element with the tap or stopcock (connector) and limiter for the end of the network (plug). The laying of the hoses can be both underground and above ground. To pass through the areas between the garden beds, it is best to dig a gutter in which to lay and cover the garden hose. The entrance of the same in the gardens can be through pre-drilled holes or below the level of the frame (for underground laying), as well as above it (for ground).
