Flora Flow - Self watering plastic mulch

I installed a 50 foot roll or flora flow plastic mulch.  It has a drip irrigation line built into the plastic.   There are also pre-cut holes to stick the plants.   I have two more rolls to set up - but going to work out the kinks on this one first.   The first set-back was the end of the watering line - popped open at the end, letting all the water run through the line -and out the end.  Working on a solution.  
Here are some pictures of my father and I -laying out the row.  There are a couple more pictures showing the holes for plants.  The row is 4 foot wide with about  1/2 foot on each side covered with dirt to keep the wind from picking up the mulch and blowing it away.
