Watering / irrigation system?

Postby OscarSidcup » Wed Mar 30, 2016 2:12 pm

Hello,

I have built 5 raised beds at the bottom of my garden and wonder if anyone has any advice with regards to installing an irrigation/watering system? There seems to be quite a lot of choice out there from different brands, so am wondering if anyone could share first hand experience in installing and using?

I laid the composite seeping hose pipe to my raised beds at home in the garden in 2013.
I chucked it all away today, starting to split and break up.

I also ran a normal hose out at same time and have 4 hozelock auto stop outlet connectors on it, can plug in at various points for watering. Not auto but could put a timer on if I feel the need

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

Thanks Pa Snip - I was wondering about these seeping pipes, so will stay clear of them. The hozelock route seems the good one to take. Have a nice day!
