Raised Bed Snip-n-Drip Soaker System
Drip irrigation- I do this every year and it works great! Especially during a long Texas drought- less water waste. The only thing that kept my plants going, and once the plants get growing they hide the bottles. Quick and easy way to fertilize too!
This would be a very good system to install for my flower pots on the porch. Even better when we are on vacation. The system waters while we are away!
