Irrigation idea to water the garden

9 months ago


My above ground garden is 350 feet away from water. My idea is to use 1/2 in x 500 ft irrigation the following: 

On one end, I'll use a hose connector to connect the tubing to the outdoor faucet. The other end would tie into copper pipe with a facuet on the end. I plan to lay the tubing at the bottom of the wooden fence and use little "U" shapped pins to hold it on the ground.

At the faucet by the above ground garden, I will hook up a drip irrigation system to water the plants.

I do have a concern about winter and freezing, but if I use an air compressor to blow out the water, I think this idea will work.

Thoughts? Any other ideas?

Thanks, Tom
