Water conservation is a big issue in many communities across the country. One way to water your plants without wasting this precious resource is to use drip irrigation. If drip irrigation seems like technical stuff that farmers use, think again. In his recently updated book, Drip Irrigation for Every Landscape and All Climates, 2nd Edition (Metamorphic Press, 2009; $25), Robert Kourik shows how to use simple drip irrigation systems for all your plantings, including trees, shrubs, flower borders, vegetable beds, and containers. Kourik explains the basics of watering, the reasons for using drip irrigation, and even tackles using grey water in your yard and garden - all in a fun and engaging style. The bulk of the book weighs in on using drip irrigation for specific plantings. The book has detailed illustrations of the individual parts you'll need to put a system together and includes resources for buying supplies.
