Drip Irrigation System | Beginner's Guide to Design, Install, Test and Enjoy!

This is the drip irrigation video I wanted to find last year when I was learning about how to install my own DIY system and it didn’t exist so a year later, here I am making it for you guys. This is a LONG video and very specific to educating and empowering you to design a drip irrigation system that works for your plants, garden style and climate. With that said, I get it if you don’t want to take this all in now and I’m going to break it down in chapters for you.

I’ve also got links to my preferred supplier, Drip Depot and links to the specific parts referenced:

As a content creator, support via these links allows me to continue to make videos and I pledge to never recommend a product or brand that I do not believe in.
