A Slightly Different Take on Drip Methods
Anyone who has taken an irrigation class from me knows that I'm strongly biased toward line-source drip (grids). The other method of drip, which I've opposed for years, is point-source drip, where button emitters and other devices provide "spot watering" in selected areas of the landscape.
In the landscape trade, there's resistance to using line-source drip. Contractors and installers prefer to use button emitters and other spot watering devices. The problem with this is that more emitters and devices need to be added as the plants grow, and this is rarely done, so the plants struggle or die.
In this course, I'll introduce a new point-source drip method that is a hybrid between line-source and point-source drip. It provides the benefits of both methods. It lays the infrastructure for the mature garden from the beginning, and it gives a sure way for the plants to thrive while getting established.
