    you should be using black and white polly, white side up with holes cut for your plants . it will save a ton of water and keep the root systems cool !

    I looked into buying one of those hoses that sweats. It had a label on it that said it contains lead, should I be concerned? Is it an irrelivant amount of lead? Maybe its big agriculture trying to deter people from gardening?

    Am I losing my mind?! I swear I saw this and most of your recently posted videos already! Did you delete and repost them or something? I’m really confused… lol.

    Thanks a lot for posting this video! I didn’t know how easy this could be and I based my setup off of this and posted a video today of my setup. Thanks again. Your video’s rock!

    @PCOStherealdeal All 3 types of timers that you asked about are available. Dripworks has both battery timers and electric timers. We used to carry a solar timer, but it just wasn’t selling so we had to discontinue it.

    That is just an insane amount of raised beds Patti! I want those paving blocks between the beds. Very cool! 🙂

  11. PCOStherealdeal says:

    one question… does the timer need to be plugged into an outlet? it does it run off battery’s? Could it be solar?

    For every 2.3 feet of elevation you gain 1 pound of pressure. Page 12 of the new (free) Dripworks catalog talks a little bit about low pressure systems.

    @skeletonmom This is great! thanks!

  20. skeletonmom says:

    @jihadacadien – I just took an organic gardening class and they mentioned that it can be done if you sit your rainbarrel up about 3 feet or so and have the dripline run from the bottom out to the garden. Doing it that way provides the pressure needed to move the water. But, it also depends on how long your drip line is, too.

  21. Cutchswife says:

    Great idea. You are a great presenter Patty. Always very clear. You should have your own tv show.

  22. jihadacadien says:

    Great video as always! Would be nice if a system like that could work with rain water. I suppose with a pump.?

  23. HungryHillboy says:

    Do chemicals leech from the plastic and in to the water that is watering the plants?
    I know it happens in a lot, but not all plastics.
