The scopes of this proposed project are to research about irrigation type and flowers or ornamental plants in Malaysia. The scopes also involve the research to determine the home garden area according to the different type of house, flow rate of the irrigation system and the relationship between the pressure drop or friction loss with the length of the piping system. In the irrigation system for home garden, there are several problems occur which is the system must be able to operate according to the irrigation time interval for each plant and the system must able to deliver water according to how much the plants require water. Therefore, as a solution a timer will be install in the system to control the irrigation time interval and deliver the water according to the water required for each type of plant. For this project design, four timers were used to avoid the problem. Several interviews and a survey had been conduct to research the irrigation system. Two experiments also had been conduct to investigate the relation between pressure drop or friction loss with the length of the piping system. For this project design, four types of plant were involved according to the survey which is fern type, palm type, flower type and grasses. The irrigation type of this design is using the combination of drip and sprinkler irrigation system based on the feedback from the survey. Sample calculation also had been done to determine the water required for each type of plant and the irrigation time interval. For fern and flower type, water quantity needed is about 0.617 and 1.045 liter in one day and for palm and grass type, the water that needs to irrigate them in one day is about 1.389 liter and 61.74 liter. The Irrigation time for fern type and flower type in one day is 21 minutes and 35 minutes. While for palm type and grasses type is 47 minutes and 14 minutes. From the experiments, if the length of the piping system increases, pressure drop or friction loss will also increase except for the length of the 4 mm diameter LDPE tube.
