A drip irrigation system can save you time, money and conserve water. This drip irrigation system can be turned on and left to do its job without you having to stand over it to monitor its progress. Using water wisely with a drip irrigation system will produce a garden that will supply you with fresh vegetables for your family.
I planted a garden in my backyard but was spending a lot of time and effort keeping it watered. My step-dad had built several drip irrigation systems from PVC pipe in his yard so with his help we built a drip irrigation system for my garden.
The total cost of supplies was under $50 for a garden 15 ft x 15 ft. The approximate time to build this system was about 5 hours including the pick up of supplies. Below are the steps we took to build this system.
