    Default 1/“2 irrigation or PEX?

    Is 1/2””” irrigation tubing stiff enough for structure? Was looking at a few options to make some structure for some areas that are 15-20’’ in the deepest spots.

    I've seen it used before as the branches. Should work. Need PVC or something for main part.

    I did a search in forums and here are the results you can look through.

    PEX makes great branches and your main “trunk” should be solid.

    The irrigation tubing I have is pretty thin. Once it is kinked it is done for. Pex should be a little more robust

    I was thinking about a trunk less design, consisting of a square or rectangle base, and creating a horseshoe with the drip tubing or PEX. I’m sure it’s been done before, but I was able to find any feedback as far as durability.

    I just installed some 1/2” irrigation tubing in my landscape and don’t think it will holdup as structure.
