    Surely CA has a backflow device requirement but I don’t see one in your video. Where did you install that? Also, is the filter the Lowes brand whole house type of all-in-one filter?

    The pressure regulator is the ball valve in each bed. It is restricted to the point where the water flows out at the desired rate depending on the watering needs of the specific plants in the bed.

    its below the ground so you would not trip over it, and you would not see it. You can totally do it above ground. The black drip tubing goes on top of the raised bed. The black rubber hose is for hand watering.

    Oh, and why do you need to go below the surface of the ground out of the house? Is the black hose for handwatering or does it lead to something else?

    What is that footgear you have on? I can’t recall ever seeing something like that in my 5 plus decades of life. Also, I live not far from you, also adobe soil. Just wet it a bit, let it soak a while, and it isn’t any harder to deal with than almost any other soil. Sand would be worse.
