We are going to install a button irrigation set up which is a real precisional precise way of placing your water where it needs to be. We've already installed the main line which is the supply line which comes from my timer, it comes from the water system that I am going to be using. We are going to poke a hole and install this little button irrigation device. These are calibrated at 2 gallons per hour and that may not sound like much but when you are putting in the right place, a pint of water makes all the difference in the world. And if you will notice it is round and it kind of looks like a button. It has a place where you stick it, the barbed part, is where you stick it into the hose and the little part that is smooth on this side is where you put the hose that actually directs the water to the precise location that you want. Insulation couldn't be easier.
