How to Build a Drip Watering System for Outside Plants

Saving water, time, and labor can all be achieved in one go by using a drip watering system. Setting up one of these systems depends on which method you'd like to follow; this article suggests the container method and the hose method.

1
Buy a sturdy plastic container, such as a milk jug.

2
Punch several holes into the container using a nail.
Make sure the holes are clear and fairly small (about 1-2mm across).

3
Bury the container in your garden or in an outdoor garden pot,
with the top sticking out. If you like, you can pile some rocks around it for aesthetic appeal.

Hose Method

1
Buy a length of sturdy hose. This is available at most garden stores. Be sure to buy a cap for the end, or your system will not work.
