    Head layout for my new house.

    Sprays, few rotors, and LOTSA DRIP!!!

    Backyard will eventually be all beds, so might do drip for everything back there. Rotors for now until I LS it though.

    Sorry Dont Do A Legend For A Plan Im Installing, Dont Need It

    Blue = Sprays
    Solid Red = Pc Rotor
    Outline Red = Full Rotor
    Hashed White = Netafim
     
  6. Hey John let me talk to you about that drip. My bud Larry called on a drip problem he is having with netafim and we both decided running 12" .9GPH through the beds isn't the way to go. I've converted him to microspray. More control over the different plant watering needs plus you can water the entire root ball of new plants. After establishment the micros can be replaced with individual emitters appropriate for each plant or situation. Run blank netafim and add emitters versus the 12" .9gph stuff. I prefer agrifim loops around bushes versus netafim.

    Couple of things.

    1) why are you using 0.9 on 12" spacing in high clay soils?

    2) Netafim installed properly, with new plantings planted properly, works just fine. There may be a few plants that will need some closer attention, but the majority will manage until established.

    With regard to the legend, that is what I figured, and still am wondering about layout and patterns

    I excavated 24" of soil where the beds will be today. Probably have to bring in 40-60 yards of bed soil for the front.

    I need to do irr and lay sod so I can get the building final on it, so I'm gonna pipe in front yard and hang clock and throw sod down where the beds wont be. Once I get back from the honeymoon, its planting time.
