Want to put drip/mist line along patio cover for fuchsias - help!

Ginny_CaJuly 11, 2004

I would love any tips regarding running a drip line along the perimeter of my patio cover. I will be hanging probably a dozen fuchsias from it and need a good watering and mist system. Thanks in advance for any and all information you can share.

With all of the new watering heads out there now this should be fairly easy. Almost 20 years ago I built an arbor, 25 feet long by 15 feet wide out of 2x8s. I had installed a sprinkling system in my lawn and flower beds so I just included one line on a valve and put PVC on top of the arbor and installed misting heads. They came on twice a day. I can't remember exactly how long.

The fuchsias loved it. So did I. They were beautiful.
