I'm trying to figure out the best way to set up reticulation for my raised beds.

The area is about 3m wide by 7m long with four beds; one about 50cm wide and 7m long, the others about 1.2m wide and 1.8m long. I'm looking at using poly pipe, but not sure whether to have upright sprinklers that do more of an aerial dispersion or have something lower down similar to one of those perforated lawn soaker hoses running down the centre of each bed.

What have people found to work well with their setups? Have you seen any negative side effects from watering above or below the leaf line?
