Planning to setup a drip cup plan for the entire home. Starting with what I thought would be the easiest 2 zones, which are the the mulch beds in front of the home that have flowers/shrubs spaced out.
Front of the house has mulch beds with spaced out flowers and a few shrubs.
The left zone has 3 heads rainbird 10 van and the right zone has 3 heads rainbird 10 as well. Each of those zones is about 240sqf. Those heads are suppose to have 3in/hour but want to do test cups to be sure.
How many drip cups should I put down per zone and where should they go? I’ve read the instructions but they talk more about lawns rather than this style.
My main question however is, when I put down the orbit drip cups they are high so that don’t catch a lot of water since since these type heads shot the water lower to the ground in general. Which is good, but not sure how to capture all the water in the cups, do I need to dig holes for each so the top of each cup is level with the ground?
Or for these particular zones is the water meter method more accurate?
Finally, would there be any problem having these two zones in my flexible daily schedule that includes my lawn?
