DIY Deep Pot PVC Irrigation

I have said this before, but I will say it again today. I love gardening but my least favorite tasks are weeding and watering the plants. That is why I am always on the look out for better more efficient ways to water the plants. I saw this very interesting diy deep pot PVC irrigation system today.

Working with PVC is always fun, especially with this simple project. The not so fun part will be making sure that each plant has its on system. I think I am only going to install these on the fruit trees, and maybe some of the berry shrubs.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • PVC pipe
  • hand drill
  • drill bits
  • miter saw
  • hacksaw (optional)

The length of your PVC pipe will vary depending on the size of the plant and the depth of the root system. After you have figured out the length, then you can drill three holes on one side of the pipe. Dig a hole right next to the plant, and place the pipe into that hole filling in the sides with soil.

The magic of this system is in the way it deliveres directly to the roots via the three hole and the open base. You can fill the pipes manually or you can install a drip irrigation system. I think I will just do it manually at first and see how that goes.
