Design the perfect watering system for your garden using Gardena Micro-Drip

Not sure where to begin?
We often get asked how to design an automated watering system using the Gardena Micro-Drip System.
So we've jam-packed our website full of information to help you find what you need.

How to start

The basics
Prefer to do your garden planning the old fashioned way? Grab a pencil and paper and keep reading, our recommendation for most users is that you start at the tap and move on as follows:

  • The beginning is your garden tap
  • Then a threaded connection to a water computed or timer
  • From this a Hose connector (female) is attached to the male end piece on the timer.
  • The hose connector connects to length of garden hose
  • At the end of the hose use a Water stop or connector.
  • Then attach a master unit (a water filter)
  • From the master unit you connect to a 13mm pipe
  • Then branch off from the 13mm pipe to a 4.6mm pipe.
    We recommend doing this as close as possible to the point of watering for optimum water pressure/flow rate.
  • Install your drip heads, spray nozzles, etc.

Note that a "one size fits all" system does not exist, the above is a general recommendation to help you understand how this system works. No garden is the same and no system should be completely the same either - there are a myriad of options and alternative ways to build a system.

Measure Twice, Cut Once
A good saying to live by, make sure you have what you need by following these instructions for best practice, water pressure is an important consideration.

Still confused?
Worry not, a Starter Set could well be the solution you're looking for.

These include many basic components, you can expand your system later by adding more bits and pieces when you have a better handle on what you're doing.

Not forgetting that the starter sets offer fantastic value, allowing you to buy multiple components at a bundle price.
