Posted May 3, 2018

Drip irrigation is a smart choice for flower beds, potted plants and vegetable gardens.

Fort Worth, an EPA WaterSense partner, launched a Sprinkler Spruce-Up campaign this month to remind residents to “inspect, connect, direct and select” their irrigation system to save water.

A traveling Drip Irrigation DIY class begins May 12 with Tarrant Regional Water District’s DIY Sprinkler Expo, followed by four weeks of drip irrigation classes. DIY classes are hands-on and will be taught by Texas A&M AgriLife Water University experts.

Drip irrigation is the most efficient irrigation method for landscape beds, potted plants, vegetable gardens and home foundations. Students will learn how to install, convert and maintain a drip irrigation system. Materials are provided, and attendance is limited to 30 students at each session.
