I received a free Basic Starter Kit from DripWorks. All opinions are my own.
I previously showed the DripWorks drip irrigation system in our vegetable garden. Today I’m going to show you just how easy it is to install the system – even when a garden is already growing. The hubby usually sets the system up before he puts out his seeds and seedlings but the system is so easy to use it can be done even after the plants have taken hold.
The berry garden was started this year and we hope it will bear fruit next year. The strawberries and blackberries are doing very well, the blueberries – not well at all. Two of the plants have died and two are barely holding on. You will see coffee filters all over the garden; we are adding our coffee grounds to help put some acidity into the soil. The filters will break down as well.
The drip irrigation economy kit came with everything needed for a 4′ x 8′ bed. Very easy to install:

A few details I missed on the video:
How easy it is to just rearrange the plants over the soaker dripline.
What the completed system looked like after he had all of the lines in.
How much his supervisor helped to direct his activities.
Close ups of the dummy plug and how he kinked the mainline.
Close up of supervisor. She doesn’t mess around when she is supervising!
Hubby is very happy with the DripWorks system. As I have already written he has used it in the vegetable garden for several years and truly believes it has helped us in our goal to save water and get the production of the garden where we want it.
Next year we hope to make a couple of adjustments to the water hydrant so that we can add Dripworks to the herb and asparagus gardens.
