The GE200 combines irrigation with a micro sprinkler system, which sprays out water at much lower rates the conventional sprinklers – reducing water wastage and creating a more targeted approach.
This product provides effective coverage for roses, shrubs, groundcovers, flowerbeds and trees and is ideal for hillsides or difficult terrain, like slopes.

The kit includes 11 micro sprinkler stake assemblies, or micro sprayers, 200 ft. coil of ½” poly tubing, 50 ft. coil of ¼” micro tubing and the parts bag, which has all the fittings, drippers and accessories.
DIG GE200: Features
The GE200 can be used to water roses, shrubs, groundcovers, flowerbeds and trees and even ideal for hillsides. The complete kit can cover up to 700 sq. ft. (expandable up to 1,000 ft.) and it contains 11 micro sprayers, which are designed to keep the water focused in the upper soil layers where roots develop.
The different attachments make it easy to cover the plant area, and it even works well as an irrigation and micro sprinkler system for vegetable gardens. However some users advised picking up some longer barbs / holders for the drips nozzles as the supplied ones are not long enough.
