Hose Bib Drip Irrigation Systems

For smaller planting beds, a simple hose bib drip irrigation system can be installed to help homeowners keep their plants watered without a plumber and at a more modest price point.  Unlike soaker hoses, the ½” poly tubing used in simple drip irrigation systems is clog resistant and can water evenly at distances up to 300ft.  Hose bib drip irrigation can be installed without digging.  Tubing is laid directly on the topsoil under the layer of mulch.  The only requirement is an active hose bib or faucet in the vicinity of the bed to be watered.

A simple hose-bib drip irrigation system is intended to make watering easier for the homeowner but still requires constant monitoring to be certain the proper amount of water is getting to the plantings. Newly planted large trees and shrubs may require additional hand watering. The timer should be manually turned off or put on rain delay during periods of extended regular rain.
