Californian Irrigation

In the Californian irrigation system, the water is transported by an underground low pressure PVC pipe and distributed with pressure at the surface by several outlets disseminated in the garden. When the outlet is opened the irrigation is done by an existing gravity channel or by connecting one or two lay flat hoses to apply the water by spray or direct the flow to the plant.
