I want to make this to irrigate my garden.  Can you help me find the parts?  Also, I didn't know where to put this.  We don't have a forum for irrigation.

Hello Bonnie,

I would try Dripworks.com.  They have a great selection of drip type irrigation supplies including whole kits if that is what you want.

Bonnie,

Is the picture the current setup that you have or something that you want to copy?
I recommend DripDepot - s customer service lady on the chat gave me a crash course on my orchard irrigation and since then everything became clear and I quickly extend it if I need, because I know all the parts and calculations.
If you have specific questions, please ask them here.

The picture is something I want to copy.  My current setup is a hose and spray nozzle, lol.  My garden is way too large for a hose, and when I drag it around, it always ends up on top of a plant, even with the posts I have to guide it.

I will take a look at DripDepot and the others that were suggested.  Thank you.

Bonnie

I would bury the main line underground if it's PVC (it does not have to be deeper than 12") and add 3/4 or 1/2 risers (depending on the hose diameter you want to use).

Then on each riser you would add a small valve and connect the hose to each one.

If you choose a hose with holes (irrigation tape) then you will be stuck with low flow emitters built into the tape. They make sense to use if the water flow is low.

I use pressure compensating emitters and this way I choose these with the highest flow, so I can supply them directly from the well pump and be done with deep irrigation in 20 minutes.

I was trying to use Perma-Loc connectors but they did not accept a standard 3/4 hose and returned them and switched to regular steel hose clamps.

How many plants are you trying to irrigate? What is your water supply (well, pressure tank, gravity tank, municipal water)?
If you want I can provide you with the links to all the parts I'm using.
