I don't understand the need to install drip. Why pay for quite a bit more in products and time converting this large area into a drip with the disadvantage of having tubing everywhere ( weeding nightmare )
When you can take.. Maybe 10 minutes.. with a remote and some nozzles and re-nozzle the zone . Take an hour to relocate a couple of those heads. Wala An hour of my time .. $35 in parts and I increased the efficiency of the zone 2 or 3 fold .Is the zone perfect? no of course not but it's a heck of a lot better then before.. That beats hours more of involvement and much more product price to increase the efficiency of what I did a small amount of xx%
How can you state this without knowing what is planted, the current DU or how much is being lost to over spray? Further, how does SDI present a weeding nightmare ... that is assuming you aren't planning on discing to control your weeds?
