The Drip Tape Layer Combo includes the famous Hoss Double Wheel Hoe and all the attachments necessary for laying the 8 mil drip tape to water your vegetable garden. The Drip Tape Layer Attachment and the Plow Set easily attach to the Double Wheel Hoe frame, allowing you to apply and bury drip tape in one pass.
Drip tape is by far the easiest and most efficient way to water your vegetable garden. Conserve water by placing it right where the plants need it. Alleviate disease pressure by reducing leaf moisture and prevent weeds between garden rows.
*Note: The Drip Tape Layer Attachment is only compatible with our 8 mil Drip Irrigation Tape rolls. Due to differences in roll size, it will not work with the 15 mil Drip Irrigation Tape rolls.
8 mil Drip Tape Irrigation Kit
The 8 mil Drip Tape Irrigation Kit contains everything you need to water your vegetable garden the most effective and environmentally friendly way. Drip Irrigation allows you to use less water while watering more effectively. This is because you are only placing water directly where your plants need it — at the roots. Because you’re not watering the leaves, disease pressure and pest pressure will be greatly reduced.
You also will have much fewer weeds between the rows in your vegetable garden. With overhead watering, many areas of your garden are unnecessarily watered, which results in watering weed seed and germinated weeds that you don’t want to grow. However, with drip irrigation you only place water underneath or beside the plants and you don’t water those spaces between rows.
We highly recommend burying your Drip Tape. The Drip Tape can be buried up to 6″ deep in the soil. Using the Double Wheel Hoe and Drip Tape Layer Attachment, you can easily lay and bury your Drip Tape along each row. There are many advantages to burying it, which include:
It keeps the Drip Tape straight along the row, keeps the water emitters facing upward and prevents the tape from twisting over time.
It prevents rats and other pests from being able to chew into the Drip Tape, causing leaks and headaches.
By burying the Drip Tape, you can direct seed on top of it with the Hoss Garden Seeder that has a rolling coulter furrow opener.
This 8 mil Drip Tape Irrigation Kit also makes it really easy to fertilize your garden while you water it, saving you time and energy. By installing a Fertilizer Injector between the spigot and your Drip Irrigation system, you can easily inject water soluble fertilizer into your watering system so that you feed your vegetable plants while you water them.
