A vegetable or herb garden should be on its own irrigation zone. Drip irrigation is an option, but specialty devices such as in-line drippers, multi-heads or irrigation tape can also be used. Check your garden daily when the system is first installed to be certain plants are receiving adequate moisture. Once the winter garden is established, watering may be required only two to three times per week, depending on soil type and the garden’s exposure.
