The Q&A Archives: Irrigation requirement?

Question: I want to install irrigation tubing with drip intermitters at every 6

Answer: I don't think you will be supplying enough moisture, but the only way you will be able to tell is to run your sprinklers as planned for a week and then dig down into the soil to see how far the moisture has penetrated. Your goal is 12-18 inches deep. If you are running half gallon per hour emitters a total of one half hour per week, the system is supplying only about a quart of water. I don't think that will be quite enough, especially during the hot summer months.
