A little trick we've been using for a few years in the vegetable garden. Comes in handy, especially when we have had dry weather like we have had this spring as well as conserving water. The combination of the felt like material, recycled from a paper mill and cut into strips, holds the water really well. I made a drip line out of .5 inch plastic electrical pipe, which was half the price of regular plastic pipe. One end was capped , the other end has a plastic to hose thread adapter, not regular pipe thread. Holes were drilled about every 5 inches. The water drips out along the length of the pipe.
