Could you tell me what you think about watering lawns by exudation system?

Looks like a good idea but I see lots of problems. You will need a really good design that considers depth, distance between lines, slope of the ground, and soil type to mention a few. If sandy soil the water may go straight down with minimal spread. If soil is mostly clay then the water will not spread at all.

If you have good quality soil it might work really well. I like the idea for shrubs since it saves water but not too sure about whole yard watering.

Unless your water is very expensive the pay back could be years.

If you do it let me know how it works out. Those are my thoughts.
