Flower bed irrigation system needed
Just moved into a new home and i'm looking for advice on an irrigation system. I was thinking a simple drip irrigation would suffice, however, there is one small issue which may not be an issue at all. Along the front of the house, i have flower beds to the left, a gap for my steps up to the front porch/house, then flower beds on the right, and the water spigot is along that right side. So i would need a system where i could run the irrigation from the side of the house, then span the steps or be able to secure the line, then continue to run irrigation along the left flower beds.

Not sure I am following you. Is the problem you need to get irrigation across a pathway/steps?

If the steps go down to a side walk you can tunnel under it pretty easily. If not you can possible drill into your crawl space and run it through there around the steps.

I have this same dilemma, but steps go down to a sidewalk. Gonna tunnel under it. Theres youtube videos showing how to do it.

Can you go under the walkway or behind the steps? You would just need to run a piece of plastic tubing.

I have used copper tubing with the press fit fittings to “jump” areas that couldn’t be tunneled under. Lowes has everything you need to do it. I did one where the pipe is snugged up to the first step and the sidewalk and it’s hardly noticeable. As it weathers it becomes even more inconspicuous.
