What type of irrigation should I use for a retaining wall?


The retaining wall is going to be 24 feet long and 2ft wide and 2 feet high.

Should I use a drip system or a soak system?

Where I live, most retaining walls are concrete block. You can water them from Boston to San Francisco and not much is going to grow on them. What type of retaining wall do you have?

I have almost the exact same thing and I'm using drip.

It's the most economical way to do it and save water in the long run. I am using a blank tubing and punching in holes into the drip myself.
