Here is how the project went:

It went well. We found everything needed for the drippers at just two store. The instillation process went quickly and smoothly. The drip irrigation gives us the spare time to weed and maintain plants, instead of hauling buckets to water them. The plants seem to be establishing well from last year's planting.

Through this project I/we learned:

We learned to cooperate and learn from team members.

What I/we might change:

We wouldn't change much, since everything went well, but we would try to encourage more people to help us.

My/our favorite part of this project was:

Our favorite part is watching our hard work pay off every time we go to water and don't have to haul buckets to each plant.

Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:

Native plants are an excellent option for landscaping. They look good and also provide habitat for native animals. They are hardy and drought resistant.
