CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $24.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Drip irrigation is the best way to help any plant flourish and survive tough times, especially during short or long droughts. Pick the wrong "stuff" and you easily can feel overwhelmed. Robert Kourik's Drip Irrigation for Every Landscape and All Climates clearly explains how to use less water yet increase the yields of vegetables and promote the growth and flowering of all plants — trees, shrubs and container plants — in any climate, even where it rains irregularly.

In the tradition of the original groundbreaking book, this fully revised edition incorporates new information essential for gardeners, including how to manage limited water supplies with precision and efficiency, without the clutter of hundreds of widgets and gizmos, and the knowledge is shared in Kourik's inimitable, friendly, down-to-earth and easy-to-understand style.

Drip Irrigation for Every Landscape and All Climates reveals how to:

  • Utilize drip irrigation for everything you grow — trees, shrubs, hanging plants, container plants, and vegetable and flower gardens — and save up to 50 percent of your water compared to sprinklers.
  • Use a streamlined configuration of hardware and tubing.
  • Choose the best, sturdiest hardware that will last for decades in your home landscape and vegetable garden.
  • Pick tubing that has no emitters punched on the outside — these have a tendency to break off — and use this tubing buried beneath the surface to irrigate without losing any water to wind or evaporation.
  • Roll out a drip system in a very short period of time, avoiding tedious hours punching in emitters or adding smaller tubing to reach each plant.
  • Capture and reuse gray water and cistern water for irrigation.
  • Construct a system in which the main parts are effectively hidden or can be simply attached to an existing garden faucet.

About the author:
During the 1975 California drought, Robert Kourik created a primitive drip system, and since then, he has continued to innovate using the latest technologies. He has written 10 instructional books advocating sustainable gardening, edible landscaping and a healthy lifestyle, including Roots Demystified. He lives in Occidental, Calif.
