Raised Beds

If you have dry plants in your raised bed, drip irrigation should be your primary method of providing water to your raised bed from now on. It is the only method compatible with plastic mulch culture.

You may need elbow fittings to accommodate getting water to the top of your garden beds, but every item can be found here at Sprinkler Warehouse. Even the most dense areas of your raised bed can be watered with all the tools that we carry on this easy to follow page.

Walkthrough

How to Install:

  1. Trench beds (2 - 6 inches deep), cut and lay out poly lines
  2. Punch SPB 025 connector into poly laterals. Attach 1/4" tubing to outlet barb and run 1/4" tubing to edge of bed
  3. Connect 1/4" tubing to inlet barb on Xeri-Pop. Dig small hole (4" wide x 12" deep) for Xeri-Pop
  4. Determine desired watering pattern and punch nozzle base (see instructions) to match planting area
  5. Grasp orange pull-ring on top of Xeri-Pop and pull stem up exposing thread area for nozzle. Drop 30-mesh screen into stem and thread nozzle onto stem
  6. Drop Xeri-Pop into hole so the cap is at grade. Fill in dirt around Xeri-Pop so the body is supported in the soil and exit port for nozzle is in the correct position
  7. Flush system for approximately 2 minutes to test for leaks
  8. Install planting material
