Installing a Drip Irrigation System
How do I install it?
- If the your garden beds are sandy the water will drain straight down and this will mean that you need to install the runs length of drip line closer together at around 150mm.
- If your gardens have high clay content the water will remain closer to the surface and the runs could be spaced out at 500mm.
Follow these guides:
These areas are best watered in a grid pattern with a collector pipe at each end. This will ensure an even flow of water to all the drippers and help prevent a blocked dripper in the event of a break in the line.
Formal hedges or straight plantings
In these situations a single run of the appropriate product installed on each side of the hedge will do the job. If the area is more or less level and the runs are short Scapeline or Mini-Scapeline can be used.
Boundary trees or shrubs
Where certain trees or shrubs need more water than the surrounding area a lateral line can be installed with a ring of the appropriate dripline product installed around each individual plant.
