Irrigating close to foundation
Having just finished a sister foundation to shore up the disintegrating brick face of our 1888 home, I'm looking to get smart about (edible) landscaping options which will not damage the foundation.
Does anyone know if there are guidelines about how far irrigation systems should be offset from the house? Do I need to worry about potential flooding in the unfinished basement?
I was thinking of gradually incorporating espalier fruit trees along the eastern side of the house to economize on space. Any thing to watch out for with this plan?
