I have sand the consistency of granulated sugar so I use the
raised beds to keep the amendments where they belong.  Rock paths
between eventually.  I have experimented with several types of
watering and have about decided on drip irrigation for
everything.  I am installing a water line with PVC pipe with a
outlet at each bed.  I have used soaker hoses and drip lines with
emitters.  Both have their problems but the emitters seem to last
longer although they have to be checked regularly for stopped up
