Vegetable Gardening: How to Install a Drip Irrigation System Part 1

I am very fortunate to be here with the President of Drip Works, Leon Springer who is going to spend the whole day with me, taking me through the multiple steps of installing a drip irrigation system.

Why do it?

Well, a drip irrigation system saves you time, money and water. It gives your plants just the right amount of water at the right time. No less, no more.

As Leon comes in, I can see what a big production this will be. I hope you will watch this video with care, but of course every garden is different, so I am just going to share the basics with you and you will be able to tailor the specifics to your garden.

The things you will need:

Watch as Leon puts everything together on the manifold, which is connected to the main hose of the house. You will need someone to help you do this if you don't have it professionally installed. Perhaps you could have several people come over and make a party out of it!
