Drip Irrigation for Large Installations

Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters come with a segment of 1/4″ drip irrigation tubing that will work great for smaller installs. These are simply connected to your existing drip irrigation system or a digital hose timer with regulator and filter.

If you’re doing larger installs you might consider using the larger 3/4″ irrigation tubing with 1/2 gallon/hour button drip emitters that are easy to change out if necessary. And be sure to keep the drip visible so you can see the water flowing. The larger tubing gives you unrestricted flow which means you can make longer runs from your source.

For even very tall walls its preferred to use a single irrigation run at the top row of pockets only. This makes maintenance much easier and reduces the flow of water to a slow trickle. This allows for the moisture to wick downward and sideways into the felt and allow for more time for it to absorb into each root wrapped plant.

It’s best to use two drip emitters for each pocket located at the far edges. This makes it easier to insert a plant into the top pocket and let’s the drippers be free of blockage. Plus you can visually see the drippers working.
