We're looking at a small acreage to purchase (4.5-5.5 acres). It has full water rights and the irrigation ditch runs across one corner of the property. We are trying to figure out what would be the most economical irrigation option (including wetting the arena and watering the pasture, and maybe temporarily watering the yard), at least for starting out, and how much that would cost. I'm thinking an irrigation gun, such as the Big Gun sprinklers and an irrigation cart would probably be our best bet. I don't know much about irrigation, so what are all the different pieces I would need to get to make this a workable system and how much would it all cost?
The property is triangular shaped, and the point from the irrigation canal to the farthest point on the property I'd need irrigated is approximately 750-800ft.
