Garden Timers......irrigation for a new gardener with project
I have recently undertaken a proejct to fix up my mothers garden which has been overrun and left desolate for a while now. I have a keen affinity to gardening although i am new to it!
Basically i need to set an irrigation system up and have been looking at garden timers. My plan is to reseed the lawn and work on the flower beds but i didnt want to purcahse a timer without research. Any help would be great. I am also wanting to make sure that when i hook up my irrigation that by leaving the tap on with a timer it doesnt simply lead to a huge water bill! i presume there is a valve or something on the timer that opens when you time things.
As well as this i am interested in shaping a vegetable patch. What are good ways to go about this i.e.e does anyone know what vegetables are resillient to someone like me (A beginner) cultivating them?
Thanks in advance. Great site by the way
