In order to avoid run off or pooling of water in blocks, it is important to break up the watering cycles on a crib wall. There are many advantages to drip irrigation for a crib wall; the most important one would be that it requires much less maintenance for an individual.
Another advantage would be that erosion of the wall would be reduced dramatically when using a target watering drip system. Sprinkler Warehouse can provide you with the tools and knowledge to install your own beautiful crib wall garden.
