Anyone have any ideas as to the best way to water a 3' X 25' strip with minimal waste?
inline drip? not too familar with it, did a job in Michigan with it a few years
back. no waste
Turf? 2 center strips and 2 endstrips
Same thing I would do.
yeh its probably too wide for the the SST nozzles (4x15) CST nozzles probably would work better, without much waste.
wouldnt you put side strips?
Look @ irritrol strips----they can be throttled down, like a regular spray nozzle.
sure-either way would work
Thanks for the excellent tips everyone! The 3'x25' strip is turf. I was looking at the center strips & end strips as suggested. I see that they make nozzles for placement in the middle area of the turf and nozzles for the end area of the turf. In other words, the head can be placed in the middle of the turf or the end of the turf. Is the coverage fairly consistent when placed in the middle area of the turf?
Only if the strip is moderately straight. If the strip has a medium to large curve to it, I would place Side Strip nozzles against the sidewalk and at closer intervals say 12 feet apart rather than 15 to help water all the turf and eliminate dry spots.
