Personally, I'm a big fan of soaker hoses. I find it easier to control the volume of water and I feel they waste less water overall.

I've just started using soaker hoses in the front of my house by one of the gardens -- it's awesome!


Automation is great as long as you do not take the "set it and forget it" approach. Just because it is "Thursday" is no reason to water your plants. Studies have proven that homes with automatic sprinkler systems waste more outdoor water than manually watered yards. Why? Nobody is going to pull a hose around if the grass looks good.

Craid has a great point about using a manual shut off for the drip system. The manual arbitration is the greenest way!

It is a useful information about drip irrigation. I am a farmer and we have very large fields, before drip
irrigation system was found it was a nightmare to irrigate all those fields because where i live is a place
that does not rain so much. Now we use drip irrigation, saving so many water and it is a lot easier to irrigate
the field with that. I am trying to read everything about drip irrigation and i recommend every farmer to use that
technique, so i am grateful for everyone who gives information about it. I also found a very good guide about drip
irrigation and it may be useful too for those who want to learn more information about that;

I read that post a few days back, when I was looking for blogs about home and garden improvement. If you're one of those busy gardeners (like me), you should integrate this in your garden - especially if you're trying to grow vegetables that needs constant irrigation.

Having the traditional way of watering the plants and vegetable will always be the most unique thing in gardening. It is your time to talk to the plants. Plants need more of your time also.
