Greatfully we did this in our last house and had alittle experience, so I kinda knew what I was doing.
Back track just a bit. Chris installed our sprinkler system
Which made the process quite easy, since I could stand in the flower bed and turn on the sprinkler to make sure it was working well.
I got one of these and it was a perfect starting point. I started in the front flower bed. I really wanted to use these cute little sprayers
However they put off between 0-15 gph and were way too powerful :( So I changed to drip lines and tips.
I installed between .5-2 gph dripper for each plant or area directly from 1/2 in pipe using my handy dandy punch.
I added soker hose to the garden and a few other places where I felt it was needed.
