Spray or Drip? Inline emitter or spaghetti tube? Manual or automatic valves? A well designed irrigation system can be a key factor to the success of your vegetable garden, and make a difference in being able to supply the right amount of water at the right timing to grow top quality home grown favorites. With all the options out there, it can be confusing to match the right approach to irrigation to what it is that you want to grow. Optimal approaches are different for fruit trees, vegetable beds, and more integrated edible landscapes. Scott Kleinrock will present his field tested favorite approaches to irrigating different types of edible gardens, including design and operation concepts, favorite products, basics of how to assemble, and further resources to make your DIY irrigation project a success.
