This paper deals with design of a watering system for a large number of potted plants that form part of a landscape. Installation of the system was motivated by a desire to save labour, time and water. The system now in operation consists of delivery rings to which are attached large number of microtube emitters. Each emitter takes water to one pot, each ring caters to a cluster of 20 to 25 pots. More can be added when needed. Flow rate from emitters can be varied by changing the length of tube. Cost of the system was Rs.5800/- and it takes care of about 600 potted plants. Presently no provision has been made for fertigation of filtering, which is proposed to be added later.
