Irrigation System

The irrigation system is a 5 gallon square restaurant bucket. One will rest on the top of each mound and be outfitted with Drip tape that will gravity fill the mound with enough weekly water. Gardens in NYC have a general water requirement of 1' per week, which is 2 waterings 2 times per week. Of course, that is rain dependant.

  1. Looks great, an easy do-it-yourself irrigation system. I live in a semi-rural area though, with a pretty good sized yard so unfortunately that little irrigation system wouldn't work for us. We recently found Orbit Irrigation, they specialize in all types of irrigation systems, small to large. Check them out here:
