Drip system for orchard

I have a small fruit tree orchard that is also used as a park setting for dogs and children. I would like to put drip around fruit trees but keep the sprinklers in use to water lawn.

Re: Drip system for orchard

Please be more specific on what you want to do and how large is the park.

From your posting, I get that you want a sprinkler system to water the grass, and a drip system to water the trees.

I would keep the two systems separate, feeding off from two supply valves, because of different watering needs and schedules. You will need a timer to control this. Also, since you described the area as a high traffic area, I'd bury all pipes.
