A drip system for a narrow strip
My inlaws has a narrow perennial strip that's about 1 feet wide and about 30 feet long. They are busy people and don't really have time to water their plants, so I was thinking about installing a simple soaker hose with a timer (faucet is next to the strip).
Would this work? My fear is that the timer will malfunction and run constantly. Would a battery power version be more reliable? Homedepot sells Melnor, Orbit, and Toro. Which one is more reliable?
