DIY Drip Irrigation System Video : GardenFork.TV

I made a video about this soaker hose water system I use to water my rooftop container garden. This watering system would be a good start for green roofs,  and for container gardens on a balcony or deck. The hardest part of a rooftop watering system is getting the water up onto the roof. I drilled a hole in the bottom of my kitchen window and have run a heavy duty garden hose up the back wall of our building, where the hose comes over the back wall of the building, I cut the hose in two and connected them with a right angle connector.

    Do you over winter the herbs pots on your roof ?

    Thanks Eric! I’ve wanted to do the same thing for my raised beds out in the yard. You really made it easy and I think I can imitate you. Now if I could just stop kicking myself for throwing away busted hoses :)
