Poor Man's Irrigation

1. Drill holes in plastic milk jugs

2. Bury in flower/plant beds

3. Fill with water and cap.

The water will soak into the soil, directly at root level as needed. You can refill the jugs with gray water or water from a rain barrel.

slightly less poor (but lazier) man's irrigation - bury terracotta pots, fill with water or just let the rain fill them. It soaks out through the bottom hole and through the sides of the pot. No drilling required.
