looks great, but what kind of watering system are you using, is it the remaining sprinklers that the formor lawn used overhead?

Howdy Shebagirl2,


When the project was finished, the homeowner opted for a drip system.




The homeowner wanted something that wouldn't distract from the stone and plants.



We had other plants that needed to be watered as well and this systen was almost invisible. 




This kit has everything you could need, it looks great and works even better.


Happy Gardening,
