My backyard is currently only dirt. Well there is a 95' perimeter pool too. We have designed the plants/trees/shrubs/vines that we will be putting in. The landscaper that I had over wants to put in one PVC pipe for all drips. This will mean that all of the plants will be watered at the same time every time. I understand that you can have adjustments for the quantity of water that is dispersed, however my concern is that some plants need only be watered weekly and others 2 or even 3 times a week. My thought was to put in multiple valves with corresponding PVC lines running out. Am I correct or can I have one PVC pipe that will water some plants 1x a week and others multiple times a week?

EDIT: We will be putting in the following plants:

Leyland Cyprus or similar x18
4 Palm Trees
Dynamite Crape Myrtle x1
Ficus x1
Fireglow Japanese Maple x1
Purple Plum x1
Star Jasmine x6-8
japanese privet x30
sod 2000sqft

Some zone systems should do that but it would be best to have two systems with one weekly and the other multiple days, it will cost more but there should be less hassle.
We have one irrigation system but the zones are set for different lengths of time.
