We have wanted to install a drip irrigation system for all of the plants around the perimeter of the lawn, but we kept procrastinating. My parents came into town this past weekend, and it proved to be a great opportunity to get some free labor and advice.
Part of the procrastination was knowing what supplies to get. I took a trip to Home Depot with my dad and got everything we needed. It was actually less complicated than I thought it would be. Instead of getting emitters with fixed flow rates, I made sure everything was adjustable. Here's everything we got, including four new valves.
|We got more than we needed. Some stuff was returned.|
We then installed the new "professional" valves.
