Narrow Planting Beds Next to a Structure

Combination Applications

With a combination of trees, shrubs and flowers, it is important to not over or under do-it with drip lines. You may need more than one drip line running along the building for your narrow planting bed, but more than likely no more than 2 or 3.

Connecting various distribution tubing to each hose will be needed for those hard-to-reach trees or shrubs. We can provide all of the essential tools for your planting bed.
