raised beds and drip irrigation
Needing some wisdom...DH and I finished our second 4'x23' raised bed in our garden this weekend with more to add. We're recycling our old deck and using the 30 year old 1x6 cedar boards. Is 6" enough for a raised bed? Does anyone use the square foot system?
I'd like to add a drip irrigation system. Where is the best place to purchase this stuff? I've been looking at a Dripworks catalog, but can you get the same stuff at Home Depot or Lowes? I have a really long run (70')at the back of my garden space with established peonies and asparagus beds. Any suggestions on what to use?
Also,we have REALLY hard well water and concerned about this clogging the emitters. Dripworks sells a device that is suppossed to do something to the water that will solve that problem with magnets. DH says that's too good to be true. Any thoughts?
What did you do right when you installed your raised beds and irrigation system? What do you wish you had done?
