Another EPIC find for our Gardens and Orchards! This Kit will start you off for a 4' x 25' garden bed. This is a favorite watering system for professional farmers. A flat tube with laser cut holes every 8 inches delivers water consistently across the whole length of tubing. Primarily for use in garden areas, excellent solution for orchards needing slow, application over larger areas. Video Link below.
