This is one of the best looking vegetable gardens Richard has seen. But it has a lot of different plant material - trees, shrubbery, vegetables, they're all going to need different amounts of water. How is that addressed? This
garden is basically a four square garden, thus the irrigation is zoned into 4 different zones which allows great flexibility in the watering of this garden. The boxwood are on this own separate drip zone. They have addressed
the various requirements of the different plant material by being smart about how they zoned the garden in terms of water. It's a very intelligent use of water.
