  1. Hey John how long do your raised beds last before youve had to
    repair/replace them?

  2. How many inches should be between each emitter and a plant – looked like
    about 6 inches or so from the vid?

  3. John, don’t forget to post other, simpler ways of building raised beds,
    lest you discourage some of your fans (like yours truly!).

  4. John, After watching this I see it is easier to use the drip stuff instead
    of haveing it all be PVC pipe. I can’t wait to get my beds built! Could you
    do a vid on just growing in greenhouses or maybe one one short seasion
    growing? I live in Bend,or and it is the high desert, with a growing short
    growing seasion. You are an insperation for alot of people, thanks.

    THANKS

  6. thanks for that tip about the cleanable emitters. we water with lake water
    and have had prob with them getting stopped up before. just knowing i can
    replace and clean them will save lots of new purchases. we are just using
    leaky hose right now. waves~~~

  7. @andrewgpayne3 It would be nice if there was kind of a breakdown of what
    the final cost was, I think it was in the first video I heard an estimate
    of about 600? Would be cool to see actuals…

  8. Adding one separate pressure regulator to the electronic valve bank is
    going to be useful. Because most household pressure regulators are set to
    around 30-50 psi. This is going to be too high for a drip system. As I said
    in a previous post, placing a ball valve on the system only changes the
    flow rate and not the pressure. A ball valve is like putting a spray nozzle
    on your garden hose, the pressure stays the same, it is just running
    through a smaller opening at the end of the hose.

  9. Very cool!

  10. great series thanks very much

  11. Great videos, keep’em coming.

  12. @wormengoeroe I was about to ask the same thing…

  13. John, this is one of the best videos I have vied on building and completing
    a raised bed garden. Thoroughly explained, very clean & clear and the
    demonstrations are very beneficial and easy to comprehend. You do (did a)
    very professional work and I am sure this couple will be able to have a
    wonderful home grown veggie crop!… Excellent!

  14. Thanks John, just finnished watching the 7 part series. It gave me some
    great ideas on how to build my beds. You have inspired me to convert part
    of my lawn to a garden. Thanks for all you do.

  15. I’m new to gardening and can’t get enough of your videos. Do you have a
    website? It would be so much easier to have a single place to find and
    print your lists, and where to order the materials you recommend, etc.

  17. John! Perfect timing. I just bought all of my drip line stuff today! I hope
    to get started tomorrow. I had a landscape guy talking to me about the
    tubing with the existing holes but I decided I wanted more control thanks
    to all of your experience, I went with what you were advising your friends
    to do and what you do. I really really appreciate what you share! Thanks to
    your friends too! Looks great : )

  18. i think i have the same kind of shoes as rick

  19. Inline emitter line seems like a lot less work. Is it worth it ?

  20. What was the total cost of the project? I am looking to do something
    similar and would love to get an idea. Thanks!

  21. part 8- bed 6 months later…awe man….wanted to see it grow

  22. Are they using city water with chlorine or is the drip system connected to
    a well? thanks

  23. SWEET SUCCESS!

  24. You did a great job with this video (as usual). Why did you decide on a
    closed loop system wherein you cannot flush it? And I see you put in three
    lines and one emitter on each plant. What do you do for radishes or other
    ,..say 16 per sq ft types of plants? How do you supply for that many? I’ve
    used drip systems for years and used and reused the parts. I’m loathe to
    punch any extra holes and want to put holes in a standardized pattern for
    crop rotation… same holes different plants.
