irrigation systems The vegetable garden and greenhouse Wizards are for the simplest irrigation systems. The flower bed Wizard is the most complex. Try a simple Wizard first to get the feel for what the Wizard can do to calculate your irrigation supplies.

irrigation suppliesPick one category - you can always come back and choose another. Compare the lists and you may be able to combine two irrigation systems in one. For instance, you may be able to combine irrigating flower beds and trees and shrubs if one combined system does not demand more water flow and pressure than is available.

Each drip irrigation circuit is unique - the list of parts is only a suggestion. Please modify the list to best fit your specific needs for irrigation supplies.

irrigation suppliesHere is a graphic example of a simple drip irrigation circuit. In this case, it is for a vegetable garden with 4 narrow rows.

1/2" Tubing mainline goes from the faucet to the near corner of the garden and then turns across the near width of the garden.

Each row is served by a single dripline. If the rows were wider, two or more driplines would be required at each row.
