Is this overkill for setting up a raised bed and pots watering system for the wife? Does anyone have good guides in setting up the watering part? I assume I need a lot of drip irrigation tubing but need to figure out how you take from outdoor faucet straight to plants. I probably need a filter for using it water too.

I garden on my balcony.
For raised bed and pots here's my setup: -One water reservoir. I use a 20 gallon Rubbermaid brute food grade storage tub with lid (two holes drilled on top, one for main drip irrigation line that runs from water pump, one for water pump power cord). You could also use a barrel/rain barrel
-One water pump
-One programmable outdoor timer
-A bunch of irrigation line (big one... half inch I think. little ones quarter inch?)
-A bunch of pressure regulating drip heads.

If you are going from the hose bib it's a tiny bit trickier: you will need a pressure regulator and filter, and an in-line timer. Also a manifold splitter (2,3,or 4-Way hose valve).

I prefer the reservoir method because I don't have to leave my water on all of the time. I just use my water hose to refill the reservoir every week or two.
