watering question

Hey guys, I have a question about automatic watering. Everything I have planted is pretty much low-maintenance and drought tolerant, and most of them are pretty well settled in and established and since we get rain almost every week in the summer I rarely water as it is. I am thinking about having an automatic system put in cus I hear that it makes a big difference, even with people who watered faithfully before... anybody have any stories or personal experience?? I would likely only set the system up to water my rose beds - the monkey grass and most of the daylillies are on their own...

I got my system from them

Ditto. My main system is the "Glorious Gardens Rose Kit" from Dripworks supplemented with various parts from Dripworks and obtained locally. Terrific stuff. I also use quick connects to attach the hose to the system. Just have to get off my duff and get a system laid out for the little bed. Nothing else in the main bed gets water, the sages, lavenders, oriental lilies and thymes (as well ad the demon hosta and vile vinca) are on their own, and do just fine.
