    I thought subsurface irrigation was bad for turf?

    Drip is not bad for turf unless it is not used correctly for the application. There are some environments where it is not recommended (near the coast line where you want the salt to wash off the leaf etc.)

    I guess I have seen arguments both ways. Even if you use over the top ( spray ) irrigation at the proper amounts there will be little flushing of the salts from the soil.

    This is often helped with the addition of gypsum.

    How deep is this put into the ground? Aeration a concern. You have any documents.

    I believe the depth is somewhat dependant on the soil conditions. I would check with the local netafim distrbutor in your area to give you the correct depth for your application. www.netafim.com
