Our Offspring have offered to buy an irrigation system for our garden as a birthday gift to their Dad who is ill.
As you all know last Summer necessitated a LOT of watering and my husband was unable to help at all. He is reluctant to have this system but I am all for it as I would be the one carrying out the task otherwise. We are both old so an irrigation system sounds great.
Does anyone here have experience of the different "types"? Do you have this sort of set-up in your garden? I really would welcome comments/advice.



Sorry I don't have any knowledge or experience that would help but if it helps you to continue gardening it's got to be a good thing?!
Perhaps a discreetly laid in combination of sprinklers & 'leaky hose' seepage would be best rather than having loads of upheaval from burying pipes or the like?

Found it! Thank you, Darren, on both counts.
