something one step above a soaker hose but not "permanent"?
I'm fairly lacking in knowledge of irrigation systems. My climate is not one that requires "permanent" irrigation systems except in lawns, and that's only if you want it to look like a golf course in the heat of July and August every year.
However, sometimes if things get dry in my planting beds, orchard, veggie garden, etc, even trees that are newly planted, I'd like to have something a bit less cumbersome than soaker hoses, which, while convenient, clog up with my hard water, can only be run in so long of a length (50ft??), & better than a water-wasting rotary or oscillating sprinkler.
What is something that can be relatively easily installed and removed, that is more efficient than an old "sprinkler" but a bit better than a soaker hose for occasional use?
Is that what a "drip line" is? Is there a flexible, removable "drip line" type product out there?
