This article was sparking ideas left & right as I read it! Especially learned a lot in the section covering raising vegetable beds to make areas where water can accumulate and will give it a try this spring.

Was wondering if you also use drip irrigation when necessary, and the best way to set it out given the varying heights. Thanks so much!

We do use drip irrigation everywhere and I find that the cheap regular soaker hoses work quite well for beds of varying heights. I have been exploring different drip systems, though...
