I currently use drip irrigation. The cheap emitters found at Home Depot. They tend to fail after a few years (clogged or free flowing). This maybe because they tend to get buried under my wood chips or soil.
Anyone have different ways to irrigate your veggie garden? I live in a very hot and humid area and cannot depend on rain but I can cover with wood chips.
Has anyone used drip tape? how do you hook it to a distribution pipes? Any other ideas?
I have not used drip tape, but I have had great success with drip lines from dripworks. They have both pressure compensating and non pressure compensating lines that are easy to install, durable and water very consistently and evenly. I also live in an area with dense clay that can turn brick hard with inconsistent summer rainfall. I highly recommend dripworks.
Hope this helps,
