Yes i was referring to my grapes. Problem was i didnt really want to have a hose laying across were i mow. i guess if i use a pump with the rain barrel i can bury some pipe to each row and have a soaker hose hook to it. Is the drip irrigation better yet? i figured the drip & soaker hose would be about the same but i really dont know to much about either.
Drippers are a more expensive way to go but you can control the amount of water each vine will recieve. You can buy 1 gal 2 gal or 3 gal emitters and depending on the type of soil you have, setting your requirement, this will determine which ones to purchase and how long to run the water each time.
Depending on the age of your vines will determine the schedualing of watering. As your vines get older they require less watering not with standing the weather.
Soaker hose is good for gardens. These are what I use; drip in vineyard
soaker in garden.
