Drip tape system for vegetable gardens

drip tape double

I sell custom drip tape irrigation systems for home and community gardens.  Drip tape is a low flow water delivery system for straight row crops. Drip tape is a thin walled flattened tube that inflates when filled with water. Even watering is delivered by emitters built into the wall of the tape. It is a low cost easy to use and to maintain alternative.

If you are looking at other drip tape systems, you will notice that my drip tape system is different because it does not use fittings to attach the drip tape to the distribution tube. Rather, it uses 1/4” tubing to attach the drip tape to the 1/2” distribution tubing which creates greater system design flexibility and eliminates the cost of fittings.

My drip tape system is great for small to medium home gardens as well as large community gardens. Click pdfhere for information on Residential Drip Tape Systems.

I retail the drip tape and all the parts needed to install your custom drip tape system found under the Products tab. I have three models of drip tape each with a different emitter spacing and flow rate per foot. I help you to choose the right one for you based on your soil type, the vegetables you grow, and the size of your garden.



Micro-Dripline Irrigation For Containers

Pot driplineI offer parts and instructions for an easy and efficient irrigation system for pots and containers 10" or larger in diameter.  The system uses 1/4" micro-dripline and fittings along with distribution tubing, a pressure regulator, and a filter.  Small shut-off valves for each container give greater watering control.  

The system can be run from an outdoor faucet or retrofitted to a sprinkler valve.  Note that the sprinkler valve needs to be dedicated to the drip irrigation system and not shared with lawn watering.  In some cases this micro-dripline system can be tied into your vegetable garden drip system if the watering length and frequency is similar.

Other Uses

Although perfect for containers, this system is also very useful for rock gardens and small areas of annuals, perennials, berries, and grape vines.
