Re: Drip irrigation
I frankly don't understand what your contractor means. 30 yards is no great distance. A standard hose spigot in a garden should give you 5 to 10 gallons per minute depending on how it is hooked up. Generally speaking drip irrigation needs about 10psi to work as specified, assuming we are talking about drip tapes, which is generally used for vegetable crops. That spigot should have around 40psi. If that is the case, there should be no problem hooking up you drip system. In fact you will probably need a pressure regulator to assure you don't have too much pressure.
You may want to get the contractor to be more specific. Perhaps he knows something about your situation that prohibits running a line to your garden.
