I am adding a new zone this week that will focus on my 2-apple, 2-orange, 2-lemon, 2-lime and 2-avocado trees in our small backyard. I am thinking I would do this with 1/2" drip main line with 1/4" spot watering emitters. I imagine this is a very basic question but would this be the best way to focus on these fruit trees. I am having a hard time getting consistent water coverage through the sprinklers.
This weekend I am replacing the Orbit sprinklers / brass heads with new Hunter PRS30 sprinklers / HE-VAN-08 nozzles. I decided it’s a good time to add a new zone on a drip that gets enough water to my fruit trees. I noticed the shrubs are getting bigger now and covering the sprinkler so my Holiday Avocado is not getting enough water and starting to dry out. Rather than watering that zone longer I would rather have a new zone that focuses on these fruit trees. Am I thinking about this right?
